Bamboo beer recipe anyone?
« on: March 26, 2014, 05:17:49 AM »
Can anyone Please help me find a bamboo beer recipe? Supposed to be refreshing, green(eco friendly) and extra good for you too. Also, the best species bamboo for it. TY

You really only need to post this once.  We'll all see it.

Lemongrass is in the bamboo family IIRC. Steeped, it could work well in saison.

Do you have a commercial example you could link to? I've never heard of bamboo beer.

I've also never heard of it. My guess is that you really want to look at bamboo shoots rather than mature bamboo plants. Not sure what flavor you would get out of bamboo in a beer.
