1 x Goldrush 1.7kg Polar Beer Kit
1 x 250g tin of passionfruit pulp
2 x 825g tins Peaches in NATURAL juice (not syrup).

Make a 22 litre wort from the beer kit and the passionfuit pulp. If you are after a stronger beer, then you could add a kilo of ultra brew or brew booster at this time. Ferment until brew is nearly complete. Transfer brew into a second fermenter on top of the peaches. Allow fermentation to continue until complete (this phase took another two weeks to fully ferment).

It helps to add a little pectic enzyme at the start of ferment and when transfering on top of the fruit. Fruit, and peaches in particular, have a lot of pectin which will create a stubborn haze in your beer. The pectic enzyme will reduce the haze considerably, if not altogether. Pectic anzyme can be found at your local HBS, and 25g should not cost you more than six or seven dollars.

This brew is not too heavy in either alcohol or body and has a lovely peach flavour and aroma, not too malty with very little hop character. In short, a very uncomplicated summer brew.

If anyone decides to brew this, please post feedback/comments in this thread!
