I didn't do anything stupid with the beer addition either . . . it was a bit less than a pint of a special bitter I brewed, watered down with a couple quarts of water. If anything it was probably the bay leaves and peppercorns boiling in there that made it taste so different.
I feel ya.. I used a pint of my Chocolate Oatmeal Stout in a chilli once... it was the best chilli i made... Some people concentrate on the individual flavors they cant pin point instead of how it the whole recipe tastes.

Amatures.. keep using that beer...

My homebrew is more expensive and better tasting than the commercial beers here, so I wouldn't waste it on cooking when I can buy a bottle for much less. I save my beer for drinking

you say you would waste your cooking with beer rather than waste your beer with cooking? why would you not want to use a better tasting ingredient?

the advice for wine is cook with what you would drink, applies also to beer.

THIS! Beer battered goodness using my Cascadian Dark Ale is infinitely better than using BMC.

I've found so far that the best tasting beer in a stew is a rather nasty tasting local beer called Red Horse - why it tastes so good boiled with beef I'm not sure, but a bottle of that costs me half of the costs of my homebrew, then my sister-in-law will drink the leftovers.

And for beer battering, a San Miguel Pilsen or Manila Beer works pretty well - I like the extra thickness in the batter that comes from a highly carbonated beer. I do drink these beers when I have no homebrew (not so much of the Red Horse) - so I'm not buying beer just for cooking that I wouldn't drink. While I'm bored of the Pale Pilsen (fizzy yellow lager) style - they're pretty decent examples of it - much better than the BMC beers you get in America.

Plus ingredients for homebrew are hard to come by here, and any commercial beer that isn't fizzy yellow lager is crazy expensive. So for now my homebrew is being treated almost like gold dust... Good thing I haven't messed up a batch yet, tipping away a whole 40 pints would make me cry!

Perhaps for a VERY special occasion I might try cooking with homebrew, but I cook with beer often enough that replacing every time would make a serious dent in my supply of decent beer.

The best beer batter I have ever made I used my brown ale. Second best I used a hoppy ipa I made. Moral of the story: homebrew makes awesome beer batter.

so the other day my friend invited me to his buddies house and I was in the middle of brewing my Pale Ale.. I said I would come over When I was done... And i told him i would bring my irish red over (generally i found it applies to many different palate) So When I arrived I heard three things I've never heard before...

1. I thought you were brewing a pale ale
Which I then explained the process

2. When do you add the vodka or do you use rum
Which I explained how yeast works

3. Then out of no where... This taste a little bit better than natty ice.. but it's no Bud light ( I never thought that beer would have ever be compared like that)

The first two aren't all that weird for a newb. Nor are they particularly stupid.

They simply don't know how the fermentation process works, and if they've seen a show like Moonshiners (not being aware of the difference between fermentation and distillation), where they're able to drink it right away, it's understandable why they might expect the same thing with beer.

The second one is also understandable, since a number of liqueurs are made like that. There are also a number of products available to homebrewers that are essentially just concentrates, intended to be added to a neutral grain spirit (ie vodka) to produce a flavored liquor or liqueur. Again, probably just a case of knowing a little, but just enough to get things wrong! I'd likewise hesitate to call it stupid or make fun of it.

But number 3... well, at least THAT is worthy of an open season on newbs!
