Bacon Beer

Postby Matt F » Fri Jan 10, 2014 10:03 am

Couldn't recall where the post was where someone was making a bacon beer, but Northern Brewer just released a kit that uses 30mL of bacon extract in a 5 gallon batch along with 12oz. of Briess cherrywood smoked malt. I had no idea bacon extract existed.

You beat me to the punch. I saw this too and was going to post to see if anyone was going to be adventurous enough to try it. I would, but I just ordered 2 kits, so I'm set for a while. If it's decent, someone should bring it to Benz Fest and our Festival.

Bacon Beer

I started down this path awhile ago.  I tried the bacon maple from Rogue's Voodoo Dougnuts line of beer... was not that great, and ultimately lost interest.   I still have some bacon vodka, which I made thinking that would be the best way to get that salty smokey meaty flavor into the beer.

I currently have a mason jar with vodka and bacon grease with the end goal of having bacon extract for beer, cupcakes, etc in mind!

Got this information in an email from More Beer today. Maple Bacon Candi Syrup. That is all.

Yeah, I tried to do a bacon beer many years ago. Not good luck. My bacon infused vodka actually started out as that bacon-flavored vodka, but all it tasted was smokey, no "meat" character to it at all. So, I fried up some real stuff, cut off most of the fat, dumped it into the bacon vodka and let is steep for a couple of weeks. Then, stuck it in the freezer to get the grease to coagulate on the top. Siphoned off the vodka through the fat cap, and like you said - Bleh!! Gave up at that point on the beer and just used the vodka in bloody marys.
