Watch it on the lactose, a little goes a long way. I'd go with 4oz and see how it goes. I made Cheesfood's Caramel Cream, and 4oz was alot.

I will mix up some into the boil and then if needed a little bit more in the bottling bucket then. 4 oz in the boil and then 2 oz increments after that I think.

Any more thoughts in regard to the recipe as I think that I will be brewing this tomorrow and I don't want to be blindsided by anything I didn't think of?

I see this was quite some time ago, but I don't see anything stating how it turned out. I found it by searching for just such an idea. Did it work? If so, what was the final recipe?

Just did my first batch this weekend and I'm hooked - now I'm searching for recipe ideas.

Randy Mosher has a recipe for Beernog in Tasting Beer. Its not a brewed beer, but a mixed drink.

Eggnog mixture:
Separate 4 eggs
Beat yolks with 1.5 c milk and 1c cream
season with nutmeg, mace and vanilla
whip egg whites and fold them into mixture

The drink:
12 oz of a "hearty ale" (christmas type ale, barleywine, dopplebock, scotch ale)
1/2 oz bourbon, rye or dark rum
top of with prepared eggnog mixture.
I don't know about you, but that sounds delicious!

I love eggnog. I mean I really love it. I look forward to Christmas time primarily because eggnog is in stores. I have been known to drink a gallon in a single sitting, loving each and every once.

But... This sounds a little weird for me. I mean, by all means go for it. I just don't think I could brew this with any confidence at all...

Every year I make a few batches of eggnog from scratch. I don't know if your friend is used to store bought stuff, but making raw eggnog is just the best, and only takes about 2 days instead of 4+ weeks. It isn't as thick as the store stuff, so I'm thinking you could make it more like raw nog. Also, a big key to it is getting those egg whites mixed in which provides that great texture, so maybe if you get something that tastes right do carbonation with a nitro mix.

EDIT: Wow just noticed it was a 2 year old thread.
