I sampled a BBQ brisket beer by cib brewery out of Iowa at a beer festival a few months ago. We talked to them and they smoked brisket and took all the drippings and clarified it to remove the fat and solids then brewed it. It actually wasn't bad. The beef flavor was mild and came thru in the finish.

So I'm starting :-)
800g Skirt Steak is in the oven, I've got a bottle of makers mark bourbon and in a week I'll start brewing a can of Coopers Real Ale with Coopers Brew Enhancer #2
I'll put the Beef in Bourbon into the fridge so any fat comes to the surface and can be scooped off. Then after a day or so of fermentation I'll add the beef and bourbon.

I'm rooting for you though I must say since it's my favorite steak to grill.... Skirt steak has a lot of fat content and aint cheap. Good luck!!

I won't lie... I'm jealous. Looks like I know what's for dinner tomorrow.

After 2.75 hours the beef comes out and goes straight into 500mL of bourbon. lid on and I'll leave it for a week. not sure yet when I'll put it in the fridge.
