I've had lots of bad idea but this one takes the cake. My friends and I often cook meat with beer. This weekend, I'm finally turning it around. I've seen tons of threads (most in jest) about making a meat beer but I've decided that I'm actually gonna try it. Tomorrow, I'm gonna make a 6 pack brew of meat beer. I'm still trying to figure out the details.

We first had the idea to just pitch in a raw porter house at the beginning of the boil. Others have said maybe try cooking some bacon and pitching that in. I didn't really have any plans to keep the meet in there for the fermentation process.

Anyway, If anyone has any experience with this (including reasons for why it won't work), lay it on me.

I'll also be making a 5 gal batch of pumpkin ale for when this goes terribly wrong... Though maybe I'll follow up with a turkey hef at the end of the month.

I'll let you all know how it goes and likely admit (in due time) that it was the grossest 'beer' I've yet to taste.

It is nothing I would ever do, but man kudos if you pull off something drinkable.

Makes me sick just thinking about it. Maybe smoke some bacon and then add that with some maple syrup?

Cook the meat separately to get the juices out of it. Then,pour it into a container & into the fridge overnight. The fat will solidify at the top. Remove all the fat & use the gelatinized juices in your wort. Fat is a bad thing in beer.

Excellent idea. I don't want the fat and I am concerned about the tastes I'll get. I'll try this. Thanks unionrdr.

You're welcome. That's the best way to be sure the fat stays out. It'll at the very least give the beer a fighting chance.

I'll post the recipe that I use later and let you guys know how it turns out. Right now, sounds like we are gonna do a lean roast beef tonight as prep for the beer tomorrow.
