Default It smells like a damn hotdog

I brewed a Wit a little over two weeks ago and I had seen a few recipes call for cumin seed and some not. I was on the fence as to if I should add it or not right up to the time I dumped it in.

Now, 17 days later I check the gravity and it's where it should be. I drank the sample as you always should and the damn thing smelled like a hotdog on a bun.
It tasted good for a really grean, flat spiced beer but damn. You bring the glass to your face and you get slapped with the cumin seed and a bready smell. Now I wish I would have not added the damn cumin.

Looks like I'll have 10 gallons of hotdog beer aging a few months.

I really like cumin, I use it in meat and sausages, however I would never use it in beer.

yeah I do too.
but I have seen a few recipes here that call for it. My bad I guess. I went back and reread some of them. One says that he let it age 6 month and it was great. The other said that it was nasty (this is on the 2nd page) but then he let it sit around a few months and now it's good. Don't efin post a recipe until you KNOW it's a good one....

Again, I can't blame them, I put the crap in there, it's my problem to drink.

Odds are the spice flavor will drop out considerably as it ages. Longer the better. Is this in bottles? If so then you can at least sample one very once in a while.

This is hilarious!

Sounds like you've got yourself a great novelty tailgate drink for the baseball season! That's good stuff. I think you should put a picture of Harry Carey on the label and name it something like "In the future all beer will taste like hot dogs! Cubs win!"

Thanks for the laugh (sorry it is at your expense)

No I don't bottle. I'll just keg it up and a week or two and let her sit.

Was that cumin seed or coriander seed in the wit recipe. I have never seen cumin in a beer recipe ever. But maybe I just don't get out much.
