You have got to try the "Chick-Can"... it is awesome. We have used several beers from a can but you can use bottled beer if you transfer it to a can.

Has anyone tried using malt extract straight? You could roll some meat in egg and then roll it in the DME and grill it, or maybe braze the chicken with some liquid extract mix.

You need to find one of these old books!



Most of the old brewerys stayed alive during Prohibition by continuing to produce malt extract for cooking. While at the same time putting "warnings" on the cans telling people not to mix the extract with water, hops and yeast...as if anyone could really make beer with malt extract, water yeast and hops!

I use Apfelwein for everything. Brats, chicken, beef, and especially pork!
Any meat that IO grill or smoke is marinated with HB/Apfelwein.

¾ cup kosher salt
¾ cup dark brown sugar, packed
1 tablespoon coursely ground black pepper
6 bay leaves, crumbled

Just made an awesome strip steak. I don't have a grill, so I broiled it in the oven. Took about a cup of my Zebulon Pike Porter, some brown sugar, garlic, salt, and some spicey mustard and marinated the steak for about 2 hours in the fridge. Then preheated the oven to broil, cooked it for about 4 min on one side, flipped it cooked it for another 3 min, flipped it again, cooked it another 2 min. Came out a perfect medium rare, and was super tender and flavorful.

Domestic American pale lagers like coors light work really well for brats. Low on hops, and you get the beer flavor. You can get it for cheap, and save your homebrews to wash down the brat!

Any HB recipe that didn't turn out quite the way you wanted makes a great cooking beer, too. You loose the subtle nuances and intensify the base flavors when you cook with it. For instance when I had a batch of oatmeal stout that overattenuated, making it a bit thin and watery to enjoy on its own, it became my go-to cooking beer until the keg kicked. Beer brazed porkchops and onions, brats, every conceivable marinade, what was mediocre in the glass turned into heaven in the kitchen/on the grill.

I also tend to mix my Apfelwein recipes a bit large 5.5-5.75 gallons, when I keg 5 gallons I save the extra in a growler/carafe and plan a series of chicken/pork/seafood around using the still leftovers. My parents did a pork loin in some I gave them off the last batch and they said it was heavenly.

I use beer exclusively for my roasts in a crock pot. Makes the best gravy hands down...On a side note my first Mr. Beer batch that needed nothing but time (had I only read around on here first...) made just as good of a roast as any other beer I've used.
