The recipes I just looked at just call for "1 package of round dumpling wrappers from an asian supermarket". Thats simple enough. I would think the beer soup, with a little pork or chicken for filling, would be LESS likely to leak as it is thicker than a typical soup dumpling soup. This could actually work!

You are right, its unclear. I would like to be there for the eating of the dumplings. Whether or not I am on camera is secondary.

My okra mead video has proven that I lack a certain flair for the camera.

Or the slow version just freeze your soup till its hard enough to not ooze but still soft enough to spoon chunks out of it. Them fill your dumplings.
The voice of reason!!!

Are the dumpling wrappers like wonton wrappers? For some reason I get the idea that they aren't what we want.

I think they are at least very similar to wonton wrappers, yes. Why do you think we wouldnt want them?

I think so. Atleast pretty close.

Meh, not really the same. Wonton wrappers are usable if that's all you can get, but they're really nothing like real dumpling wrappers.

And putting a little gelatin in the beer and refrigerating it will make it turn into jelly. You can wrap the wrappers around the jelly and steam them. It adds a little mouthfeel.

This is an awesome idea, but soup dumplings don't have just soup in them. Perhaps a little piece of brat or something to go with the IPA?

I might actually try this...

Hmmm......how about skip the bottle completely. I wonder if a bratwurst will hold carbonation.

Well, all this Chinese dumpling talk has inspired me to make egg rolls tonight with homemade wrappers instead of store bought.

I used this recipe.

I don't see why you couldn't use your pasta machine to roll it out. It sucks doing it with a rolling pin.
Here they are ready to fry.
