Default Pabst Blue RIbbon malt extract cook book

Hi all,
I came across a neat little cook booklet. It was put out by pabst blue ribbon. It was published in 1928. According to my research that is sort or the middle of prohibition. it calls for hopped and unhopped malt extract. It has every thing from hopped donuts to halibut steak with dressing. i will be trying some when I pick up some malt extract. I know I'm probably not suppose to but i scanned it and have it in pdf format. I will share if any one would like. Just pm me and I will email it.

It's probably not any good. I think the just had to publish recipes as a pretext for selling hopped extract and yeast that were used for illegal beer making.

If my memory serves me, I recall a few on here mentioning that they had prohibition time beer recipes from Pabst also, apparently if you ordered that book which you have it would be sent out to you. Two weeks later a plain brown envelope would arrive unmarked with beer recipes, as remilard says it was a cover.

Blue Ribbon Malt is now:

http://www.premiermalt.com/malt.products.html

And here is another similar company:

http://www.maltproducts.com/

In this area, until recently, malt extract was stocked in the bakery section of most grocery stores; the above company web sites show that malt extract is a lot more than brewing.

And, yes, friarjohn, I would like to see the "cook book", thanks for sharing what you found. I have been wanting to get to the book stores to see if I could find a copy.

I realize malt extract is used in baking. Hopped malt extract only has one purpose though.

My wife recently made some bagels and a part of their cooking was to boil them in malt. They were tasty.

Default Family History

I ended up on this thread because I just learned some family history from my 88 year old dad. Since I'm from a strictly teetotalling family, I wanted to know if I was the only Black Sheep. When I asked if anyone in the family drank at all, he said, "No, no... Well, you know your Grandpa used to drink beer. He brewed Blue Ribbon in the basement."
NO, I DIDN'T KNOW THAT!!! It's genetic!
So, I've been starting to research what Grandpa used to brew, so I could try to duplicate a batch. - "Cheers, Gramps!"
I would really love to get a copy of the recipe book you described, friarjohn - I'll try to contact you directly, but I thought others might enjoy the story...
