All Things Food / Beer Ice Cream Recipe - Searching...
« on: June 09, 2013, 10:35:53 PM »
I've never tried it, but here's a recipe for Beer Sorbet from Ben & Jerry:

Ingredients:
Makes 1 quart

1 1/2 bottles (18 ounces) flat dark beer
5 tablespoons sugar
Procedure:
1. Pour the beer and sugar into a large mixing bowl and stir until the sugar is disssolved.
2. Transfer the mixture to an ice cream maker and freeze following the manufacturers directions. If you do not have an ice cream maker you can put the mixture into a shallow tray and place into the freezer. Stir every 20 minutes or so until frozen/slushy.

Beer Recipes / Pinkus Hefeweizen Clone Help
« on: February 10, 2010, 02:02:57 PM »
Does anyone have a Pinkus Hefeweizen recipe?  The brewer describes it as "Very light in body and color. Crisp, dry, spritzy, and refreshing unfiltered beer. Clean ale-yeast aroma and flavor, without the characteristic yeasty spiciness of a Bavarian wheat beer."
This is one of my favorite hefe's because (as the brewer indicates) it lacks the clove flavors associated with most hefe's.  I taste a lot of citrus flavors and with summer just around the corner I'd like to brew something similar.  I'm guessing it's a fairly basic wheat beer recipe and the trick is probably in the yeast that's used.  Anyone know what yeast is used and/or has anyone successfully cultured yeast from the bottle?  Thanks

Why would you want to go with stainless?  As realbeerguy indicated, stainless doesn't conduct heat very well and the whole point of the wort chiller it to cool as quickly and efficiently as possible.  Thats one of the reasons most good kettles have an aluminum disk sandwiched between layers of stainless steel in the bottom of the kettle.

Mine is technically a HERMS but you might find it helpful.  My brewstand is a table with a stainless steel top that I picked up at Sams Club a couple years ago.  For more info and pics check out my blog:
