Default Aunt Flow's Bloody Beer recipe

So, my lady keeps putting clamato in her grain belt, and being the people pleaser I am, i thought i'd try and brew a light ale while clamato in it. Not sure about a lot of these steps, but I think it'll work. My main concern is adding the clamato to the bottles at bottling. I felt this was the best way to infuse the clamato without compromising the beer primary fermentation. I won't be brewing for a couple weeks, but I thought i'd share this and see what you all think! thanks!

================================================== ======

My only criticism would be to change the name. It doesn't exactly scream "drink me! ".

haha my lady agreed. i recently brewed a batch for my buddy's birthday called Bruce's Brown Eye P A that was a black ipa. disgusting names is kind of my thing. by vienna lager was called Brick **** House. it's just what I do. it's my little way of trying to keep my friend's from raiding my home brew.

Just wondering if you considered the sugar content of the Clamato when you calculate your priming sugar amount? It almost certainly contains sugar, so I think it would be good to figure out how much and if it is fermentable to avoid bottle bombs.

This is no offence to TC or his skills, but the idea of clamato in beer makes me want to vomit.

to be honest- that's why I posted this thread. i want to make sure it comes out red and the clamato taste is present, but i didn't know if it would cause any problems. i'll check it out and update you. i'm not brewing it any time real soon so i wanna flesh this out before i take the dive and try it.

hey man- it's for my lady. rack up the brownie points when you don't need 'em. that's my motto. and it'll be fun to brew- regardless if I drink it or not. I've got 5 gallons of a Winter Spiced Ale and 5 gallons of Caribou Slobber on deck right now. my taste buds are satisfied. may as well try to satisfy hers as well.

i would think the clamato needs to be refrigerated let alone if it contains sulfites, it will stop yeast growth...just something to think about when your carbing them up
shes got the right idea "mixing" it out of the bottle. This is the way they do it in mexico and seems like it would give you the most flavor.
Brew a light lager or cream ale with 2-3 jalepenos OR 1 habenero as a spicy base for the Bloody beer

thanks for all the great comments. i'm ordering the ingredients this week and hope to brew sunday (10/27/12). I chatted with the northern brewer dudes on the live chat and I have made some adjustments.

the hop additions raised the IBU too much, so to balance things out, I am going with the following-

1/4oz Willamette Whole Hop (60min)
1/4oz Willamette Whole Hop (20min)

Being that this is a two gallon batch- he said that will help balance things without it coming out bitter.

in response to adding clamato to the bottle:

there are 10 grams of sugar in 1 liter of clamato. this is small enough to not cause any problems.
the sulfite question is one to take into consideration, but i'm gonna roll the dice. it's 2 gallons, and meant to be an experiment.
i couldn't find anything on the bottle that says it contains them- so i'm gonna have faith in my yeast.

one last question before I order my ingredients would be yeast choice. I burned up my left over Mr Beer yeast on some cider/graff last weekend so I'll need to get at least 2 grams of some sort. any suggestions?
