I find it funny that as I am reading this there is a url ad for 'Growing your own mushrooms". Perhaps the ad gleans text from the posts, or maybe I'm just trippin.



At any rate, I would have to wonder why you want a mushroom flavored beer. Sure I have thought about it, with culinary mushrooms (There are certain types that have an almost fruity characteristic flavor profile vs. the earthy "mushroom" flavor). I have even made ice cream with mushrooms (the type I am speaking of). But mushroom flavored beer kind of freaks me out, lol. Better to keep mushrooms with a steak and drink a porter or stout on the side, imho.

Back in college, I did a lot of "experimenting" with this particular product. I had some really really good ones and equally bad. I personally think that you need to keep the dose low so that each person can up their dosage to their desired levels. It's a fantastic substance, but one that I haven't touched in 7-8 years.

It sounds nice on paper, but I think it's a bad idea. For one, shrooms taste like ****. You want to cover the taste and get them down as quickly as possible. The tea method with lots of honey and stuff to cover the taste helps, but it's still pretty bad. I'd think that adding them to beer would feature the taste instead of masking it. And featuring something that tastes like **** is going to give you beer that tastes like ****.

I', in the same boat as Cheese. Did my fair share in college, but haven't touched any in a long time.

If it does search the posts for repeated words we could have fun with this

All I know is that I better be careful before I swap beers with some folks. The first time I unknowingly drink a shroom or pot beer I can guarantee I'll get tapped for a random pee test.

lmfao... whos the drug dealer up in here? HAHAHAH. Shroom beer eh? Well... this particular beer isnt really special for taste, more for content. IDK about you but three homebrew porters would get me pretty full and buzzed. I would dose it for two beers if you end up with a porter. Besides, if you make them stronger, you immediatly go from 16 doses per batch to 25! HAH!! Stretch it out baby....

take care!

One final thought: who says that's the only beer you'll be drinking anyway? Why not make one beer = one dose, and have plenty of other tasty homebrews on hand.
