Default Bacon Beer

Anybody ever tried a Bacon Beer before?? Is this something that could be done in a homebrew?

Original Schlenkerla Smokebeer from Bamberg - The smoked beer specialty in Franconia (Bavaria, Germany)

LOL , like the Coke, if the aspartame doesn't kill you the saturated fat will.

There's nothing in this world that brings me more joy than a good rauchbier. Learn to mash (even partial mashes), then study up on using rauchmalt. There's nothing in this world that's better. Rauchbiers, smoked porters, smoked stouts, smoked bocks, smoked hefeweizens....

+1 to this...Even a tiny amount, like a single pound (or even two) in a grainbill for a basic brown ale, stout or porter can add another layer of complexity to the beer....the smoke will not dominate at that level, but but it will be somewhat noticeable....the drinker may not be able to point their finger at what it is, but will notice something distinctive from other beers.

So do you smoke the malt yourselves or can you order it? Does it really have bacon tastes?

You can get Rauchmalt or Peated malt anywhere you can get most grains..but be aware you use a lot less peated malt than you use Rauch....it is very intense stuff mostly used in the whiskey industry...where you can use POUNDS of Rauchmalt, you only use OUNCES of prated..and the less the better...DO a search for discussion on peated and you will see horror stories of people who thought it was interchangable...

also you CAN smoke your own malt...look for a thread by "donkey sniffer" about smoking your own..or any of the other threads onthe topic...

Yeas people do equae smoked malts with bacon flavors.....

Have fun.

I feel the same way. Smokey beers are definitely love or hate.

I made it through about half of that beer. Then I decided it was weird to drink meat. One of the few beers I didn't like. Luckily a friend liked it, so it didn't get wasted.
