Now that's an idea. I suppose I wouldn't go through the trouble of bottling/carbonating. How would you go about storing the 5 gallons?

As for the "whole story"... Let's just say that it wasn't me who poured it in there, nor was it any kind of mistake!

Excellent point. If you enjoy smoked fish, it would make a killer brine!

you might not be able to bottle carb this, the salt may have killed all of your yeast and there might not be any left to carbonate the batch. If it tastes salty to you, it is probably deadly salty to your good friends the yeast.

This is an excellent idea. I would even brine a chicken/turkey in it as well - the cooking possibilities are endless!

What kind of beer was this...if it was a light lager I'd squeeze a bunch of lime in there and say it was your attempt at a Miller Chill Clone.

Try it with lime....


But I'm all for the "cooking beer" idea. It'd be great for all kinds of stuff.

the cooking idea is a great one most cooking wines have salt added to them and they're still great for cooking. I hesitate to mention this but water can be desalinated by distillation so...
