I've had a weird urge to make some sort of avocado beer for quite some time. I've heard rumors of some commerical styles that have incorporated the avocado, but have not been able to unearth either a recipe or any details. I was thinking the creamy flavor might pair well with a stout or other low-carbonated heavier style.
I have no idea how much avocado I would have to use for 5G, or if the result would even approach drinkable. I am also worried about the natural oils in the avocado wreaking havoc with head retention and the fermentation.
Has anyone here ever attempted, or heard of anyone attempting, such a feat? The fact that I can't find any recipes online means either it has been done before with horrid results, or no one wants to waste perfectly good beer finding out if this is a ridiculous idea or not :)
Looking forward to seeing what everyone thinks.
