I hope this works well for you. It sounds terrible.

Yes I have. My wife loves bacon and makers mark. We heard about how to infuse the bacon from a cocktail show so we tried it. Tastes awesome. Like a blend between bourbon and a nice peaty single malt scotch.

Hm, I wonder what I did wrong then. Maybe I used way too much bacon fat?

Oh and on the thread topic, Peak Organic makes a Maple Oat Ale... one time I was visiting a friend and brought my bacon beer and he had a few of those in his fridge. We blended the two and it tasted like breakfast, was pretty tasty. So, I'm sure it's possible for it to work out but it might take a lot of trial and error.

I'd say, definitely only bottle the bacon beer in 12oz bottles at most, you'll probably never want to drink more than 6oz on your own if you use the method I did. Perhaps if you reduce the amount of bacon or properly use the bacon fat/liquor infusion you might have different results but that was my experience.

A brewery here in town actually has a Hickory smoked maple bacon porter on draft right now. I tried a pint, I mostly got the Hickory smoked taste, not much bacon or maple. I don't know how they made it though. It wasn't a bad beer, not something I would drink several pints of.

If you want to add some coffee aspect to the mix, Brew up a standard Porter or Robust Porter and add some Maple Bacon Coffee to it. I ordered some online a while ago. Funky Budda in FL has people going nuts for their Maple Bacon Coffee Porter and all it is is there normal porter aged on the Maple Bacon coffee. The coffee has HUGE maple notes, the bacon is a bit more subtle.

Incutrav,

I'm making a similar beer - maple smoked "bacon" stout. I'm going for a smokey stout with noticeable maple. How much of the maple bacon coffee did you use, how did you add it (just grounds, brewed coffee etc.) and when?

Thanks!

We tried Bacon flavored Torriani syrup and didn't like the flavor. Just went with Maple. Turned out real good on the first attempt. Introducing "Morning Wood Robust Porter".

I tried a stout with bacon salt to the boil and more at bottling, I can barely choke it down and it's been in a bottle over 3 months now. I may have used too much, but if I try it again I won't be using the salt at all.. I also added maple syrup at flame out and none of the flavor came through. Are there any recommendations on getting more of the maple flavor to come out?
