I have a small crababpple tree that produces about 10-15 pounds of fruit every year. I usually use them to make cider but last year I brewed a Belgian blonde ale and added 10 pounds of crabapples and a dose of brett in secondary. After several months I racked the beer to a keg and let it sit another month for the brett to develop. The end result was a very crisp, dry beer with subtle apple flavor. The keg was finished in a month(fast for me).
