I love garlic; give me a nice head of roasted garlic and I'll just eat the cloves (for those of you that have never had roasted garlic, it's not as disgusting as it sounds. Roasted garlic is squishy, mellow, and almost sweet). However...I can't imagine a way to make garlic beer work.

Down here is the South we do crawfish boils and add halved heads or garlic to the boil. In between crawfish tails, you pop a clove in your mouth and it's super sweet, a touch spicey, and like buttah!



I see no reason why this wouldn't work in beer!

I made a Garlic Beer once (one gallon batch). I put sliced garlic in the primary. It tasted OK if you drank it while eating pizza, but by its self it was nasty. The worst part was the smell while it was fermenting!

Needless to say, I never tried it again.

I actually like the idea of cooking with it. If you can't drink it, that might be an alternative.

For cooking, you could just infuse any beer with garlic, truffles, whatever. I will try this in my basting spray bottle for slow fire barbecue sometime. Sounds great. As far as a pure drinking beer, well maybe if you throw a few clams and some parsley in the secondary.....

I'm in the middle of doing some homework about garlic beer myself. Bare with me as I dig up this month stale thread. It's one of the many reasons I decided I wanted to start brewing my own. I love garlic. I'll eat whole cloves raw. I'm a big fan of the phrase "lets eat garlic and make out" (garlic is an aphrodisiac).

I have 2, 1 gallon jugs I've been using for small batches of cider that I plan using to work out the best garlic beer recipe to ever exist! Something I can get exited about making 5 gallon batches of will be the goal, and I'm ready to roll with the punches. Bad batches will be great for cooking with I'm sure.

I've been interested in trying to toss a bit of garlic into a few bottles, recapping, and trying it after a week or two. I have a friend who did this with some hot peppers and she was happy with the results. At the moment, all I have around in bottles is wit and coffee porter though.... maybe not the best idea...

Garlic beer is in my future, for certain. It will take some time, but I'll keep ya posted.

Any updates? Has anyone had a successful batch or bottle?
