Hello everyone, first time posting but have been reading the site for a while. I have been brewing / making wine for a few years and realy enjoy it.
My first post and I have a sorta strange questions....How do I make a beer taste a bit like blood?
I know you cant add real blood as it will spoil and I am sure would taste like crap anyway, so what I want is something that will add a Iron taste.
I was thinking a fairly sweet strong brown ale as a base beer, medium hopped, with a bit of juniper added. Maybe a little bit of smoke taste but not very much. I would then want to make it taste like iron a fair bit. You know that taste when you like something metal...yuk.....ya that. It is the closest taste to blood I can think of. Anyone know how to accomplish this?
And yes I am a Star Trek geek, so this will be a Klingon Blood Ale.
Thanx alot for reading this post.
