Default Meat + wine + carboy = ?

Hhhaaaa! Just crossed my mind. What happens if after primary when you use a dry hop style method and through in some bacon under an airlock for flavor, then rack off in about 2 weeks?

Do you get sick or worse?

Ruin the wine?

Does anyone know?

I suppose if you sanitize the bacon, you'll get some flavor.....

You could try using cooked bacon and infusing some vodka with it to use. I don't think you'd want the actual bacon to go into the wine due to the fats that you'll get too.

Beat me to it!!!!! My first though at the title was infusing vodka!!!!

From there, maybe using a small amount and mixing it with a finished wine (in a glass of course) as a sampling.... (As I yell 'honey, get the glasses out, I got an idea I wanna try...) Haha!!!

Just imagine what ELSE you could use the bacon infused vodka (or other alcohol) in...

So I guess there is some truth to the Buffalo Wild Wings commercial? Bratwurst Beer and Bacon Wine.

Don't go dissin' bacon there kitty.

BTW, has anyone else seen the episode of triple D where the bar made bacon infused bourbon/whiskey?

I don't drink bourbon, but if I did, it would be bacon infused. [via the Dos Equis most interesting man]

I've never done it with wine, but a couple of years ago Midfielder5 sent me a "dryporked porter". No lie.

It was actually very good! I'm not exactly sure how she did it, but it seems like she cooked the bacon very crisp, blotted it (to soak up the fat) and added it to the secondary.
