I want to make an eggnog flavored beer for the holidays. I want it to be a fairly high gravity ale (around 1.075). My favorite eggnog recipe is Alton brown which has eggs (of course), sugar, dairy, bourbon, and nutmeg. I also want to add this eggnog tea that bigelow makes.
My beer ingredients substitute:
Eggs - flaked barley (egg whites give the froth and egg yolks give the body)
Dairy - lactose
Sugar - crystal malt
Bourbon - bourbon...lol
Nutmeg - nutmeg
I don't care for cinnamon nor brandy in my nog.
I'll probably formulate the recipe shortly but I was wondering if anybody had thoughts about the direction I am going in.
