Default This is embarrassing and dumb...but I'm asking anyway

So I have this friend who brews about 2-3 batches per year, using canned extract and loads of flavored syrups. He basically just makes some sort of beer and dumps flavoring in it.

Anyway, he is convinced that he has a brilliant idea to make a cheese beer. Basically, he wants to make a base beer and add the powdered cheese packet from a box of Mac N Cheese (I **** you not).

I just tried to explain why that's just not a good idea, but he wasn't having it. I told him that fats and beer don't mix, not to mention the chemicals that are in that neon orange cheese. He still wasn't having it.

Can anyone give me a quick reason why this wouldn't work, so I can explain to him the various reasons why it won't?

That would be a help. And hey, if you have an idea as to how to actually get cheese flavor into a beer, I guess I would admit I am wrong...

Thanks! I hope you enjoyed one of the more ridiculous posts you've read on here in a long time.

Nope... I can't think of a single reason why that wouldn't be the best beer ever made.

Tell him to go for it!!!

Basically he's adding cheese flavored flour to the mix. But hey, let him make it and drink it. the day I want my beer to taste like my cheese, I'll put it in a blender.

That is asking for oxidation for sure

Beer cheese soup is awesome, but cheese beer, I dunno. Though there is pizza flavored beer.

I love cheese and beer. I don't predict this ending quite as he expects, but encourage him to follow his muse.

I should tell him to make a rauchbier and add the cheese flavoring. Smoked Cheddar. Unfortunately, he isn't too aware (nor cares to be aware) of different beer styles.
