I know it sounds crazy, but I'm from the country and there's nothing like the smell of fired tobacco barns in the cool fall air. So how about making a smoked porter or stout by smoking tobacco leaves just like they do in the barn?? Crazy? Possible??

Possible... Yes!

Crazy... YES!

Would I drink it? He!! no!

Sorry, but I think it's a really bad idea. Tobacco has some nasty, dangerous stuff in it!

I'm with Stauff. I think that has the potential for death.

I remember a similar thread awhile back. I say if u want to try it than try it. Write down your recipe and tasting thoughts. If it works out for u than great. That's brewing. I personally think raw tobacco uncured smells great, I wouldnt ever smoke, chew, or brew with it but that's just me. Judging by the cig butts and spit bottles I'd guess that I'm not an authority on the subject.

I remember that thread too, and if I remember correct the general consensus was that you would basically be creating poisonous beer.

I'm all for experimenting, but some things just shouldn't be done.

Just my opinion, though...

I don't mind smoking, chewing, or dipping tobacco on occasion, but have you ever swallowed tobacco juice before? Either from chewing tobacco or dip?

I don't know about you, but even a little bit makes me feel sick to my stomach. I would imagine beer with tobacco in it would make me even sicker from the larger quantity. I'm sure it would smell nice though....

Totally agree, but I also Agree that smoking and chewing are poisonous and people continue to do it anyway. Not placating, just saying. bTW altria is a wicked corp/stock again just saying. I never got the smoking or chewing thing but I see it everywhere. Probably not the best idea but there is also the caffiene/alcohol industry creating some nasty stuff that folks actually like and buy.
