Looking for someone to try this.

As per a discussion in chat. We were thinking how awesome combining turkey frying and brewing would be.

Take a turkey and boil it in your wort till cooked. Eat the turkey and ferment the wort.

Since the grease will be floating on top of the cooled wort you should be able to avoid transfering it to the carboy.

Now what's a good recipe idea for this? What style would work best for this?

Turkey Tripel?

Actually, a nice malty beer would be good with a Butterball.

i imagine the turkey would be pretty sweet, due to the sugar content of the wort.

as for the beer, your guess is as good as mine.

+1 EVAN. The turkey might taste good when you EAT it.

Who wants to drink a turkey?

For that matter why not boil a live pig in your wort you sick****?

I applaude experimentation, but dear god that sounds gross.

Doesn't beer make you sleepy enough without adding Tryptophan?

How about a Gobble Bock?

Not to mention that wort is not oil. I have never seen a recipe for a boiled turkey.

I have used beer to make sauces. Anything with more hops than budweiser ends up too bitter.

Stouts seem to make some really nice sauces.
