So my Passion Fruit vine went crazy this year and I would guess that I have approximately 80-100 of them. So, I have decided to brew this weekend and utilize the fruit. I am thinking about making a simple Belgian Pale, but am open to suggestions. Wheat? Saison? IPA?

Fruit additions in the secondary I would presume?

100% Brett C Belgian Pale w/ fruit in the secondary. Never used passion fruit but since you have a lot of it Id see nothing wrong with using 3 lbs or so per gallon.

Id personally say to go with the Belgian Pale Ale (or even an American wheat) to emphasize the fruit. Sounds like youd still have enough to do a Berliner as well...

Mead. One gallon orange blossom honey, enough juice to make five gallons, and use champaign yeast. Sorbate it up and use a half gallon of juice to backsweeten. Well make a killer mead in a year from now.
