Beer Bread
 
My wife just bought a beer bread mix and I'm wondering which beer you think would do the recipe right. Before I started home brewing I would have given her a Milwalkees best lite :cross: but times have changed....I have Irish Stout and I have IPA. I figure the stout would be the one to go with but I'm open to hear from those of you who have made this bread before.

Don't use the IPA. I've made homemade beer bread before, and unless you really like hops you are not going to appreciate the flavor in your bread. (Hops good in beer, not in bread). The stout or a low hop pale ale would work great.

Thanks for the reply, Stout it is!

I'm a bit late, but +1 to all of that. Hoppiness doesn't go so well with baked goods, but stout would be great. Let us know how it turns out.

Stout is the way to go.
I've made beer bread a few times using stouts, and once with an amber that turned out pretty good.

hops dont work in bread? how does it taste? i was thinking of making a slightly sweet bread with only a tiny amount of hops, would it be a good spice?

I really like using an ESB in beer bread.

I plan on trying it this weekend with bread and bagles.

Collect some wort prior to adding any hops.

Use that.

Doesn't beer bread use the yeast in the beer for the bread. I don't think plain old wort would do the trick.
