Ingredients / Inspired by Oyster Stout...
« on: November 04, 2009, 09:57:18 PM »
After reading this post about brewing with oysters, I've decided I'm going to try something bizarre with one of my next few beers.

So far, here are my thoughts:

(1) Some type of flavorful mushroom (morels, perhaps?) is near the top of my list.  I'm trying to decide what beer style would go well with this... I'm thinking maybe a brown ale or maybe an ESB.

(2) Shellfish of some sort, perhaps oysters.  Maybe clams or mussels?  Pretty sure this would have to be with a pretty rich/flavorful beer since my stomach turns a little at the thought.  But where's the fun if you're not taking a chance it'll be disgusting?  Perhaps I'll drive up to Jersey and taste that stout first....

(3) A strongly flavored root vegetable, like turnips or radishes.  Not sure what effects this might have on wort chemistry, but it sounds like fun.  Would probably be a pale ale or IPA, using the spiciness.

(4) Your suggestions?

This will be all-grain, a 5-gallon batch.
