Default Bacon beer?!

I'm trying to figure out a recipe for a bacon blonde. But I'm having trouble with how to add the bacon? I don't want the grease in my beer but I don't want to use fake bacon. Any ideas?!

There is a bacon porter recipe under the porter section in recipes he soaks 6 slices of paper towel patted down pieces of bacon in vodka overnight then scrapes the bacon grease off and adds it to his mort. Hope that's the answer you were looking for. I've never used bacon in beer myself but good luck and let me know how it turns out. Cheers

I would start by looking at those threads labeled bacon beer, in the similar threads box below. There are 100's of threads on here about it.

You can also infuse bourbon with bacon as I show in this thread, and add that to the beer, for example to make a bacon bourbon stout. The process removes all the fat from the bourbon....even more points if you cure your own bacon...extra credit if you make it a maple bacon bourbon.

Usually I'm all for "it's better with bacon," however, a bacon beer does not fit. Maybe someone will prove me wrong, but I doubt it.

It's all about perception. I know that most people taste the smoke in bacon and automatically perceive smokey things as bacon-like. For example:

Yeah I wasn't a huge fan of it either. I got more maple syrup than anything. It was something to try though.
