I think I'm gonna have to brew another batch of dry stout with no hops and no yeast, just for drinking like Pepsi. Seriously, after I tasted the first runnings from this batch, I was just blown away.

I'm thinking a spargeout to fill my kettle, bring it to a boil, skim off the hot break, ladle it into four dozen pint Mason jars and can it up just like that!

Hey, it sure beats the crap out of Coke. And I'm pretty sure it's good for ya.

Slán!

I like to add it to my coffee!! I don't usually sweeten coffee, but I couldn't resist trying it. I've been hooked ever since.

Priceless.

Do I see a commercial success coming on?

That's a great idea! I wish I'd heard it before my big brew session yesterday. I bet it's delicious.

Try cooking with wort as well. Save a cup or so of first runnings and use as a marinade or glaze. I recently tried this on country style ribs (Cooked a 300 F, in ~ 1" of Pre-hops IPA). Finished under broiler with a chipotle and adobo sauce. UNBELIEVABLE!!

This I am going to try.

Generally I pour my hotbreak into a glass or plexi measuring cup and leave it ont he counter overnight.

Guess what I spoon carefully into my oatmeal next AM?

Ah, more excellent ideas! Thanks for opening my eyes. I'm just disappointed I hadn't thought of using tasty wort for other purposes on my own.

Could make an interesting Martini.

I wish I had read this yesterday. I could have easily heated up an extra gallon of sparge water for some marinade and coffee "sweetner". Great idea... Thanks
