400 year old buttered beer recipe
« on: June 16, 2020, 01:06:45 AM »
I've never tried to make a buttered (butter) beer.  But if I was going to, I think this is the recipe I would follow.

While watching this video, you do have to allow for certain things.  For example, he says to use a British ale for the recipe, and then you see him pouring in a Sierra Nevada Pale Ale. ;D

This looks interesting, if a bit gross. I think I would try it with a malty brown or amber ale. Maybe something like Boont Amber or Moose Drool.

143 views and 1 response prior to mine. With all due respect to the OP, I think, in my opinion, that the idea is pretty nasty sounding. I must admit though, I didn't look at the link.

I don't think the lack of responses is because people find the idea nasty.  I think it's because the butter beer fad has been gone for quite some time.  Except for people out there who are still throwing Harry Potter parties.

As I said, I never made one before.  But this was definitely the most interesting take on the idea that I ever saw.  That was the reason for posting it.

If I do ever get around to giving this a shot, I'd probably use an English porter.  I think that would work well as a base with the flavors described in the video.

 I've just made this and I gotta say I love it. It was a bit too sweet with half an lb of demerara sugar but I figure to tweak it a bit next time. I used Newcastle brown ale and it does the trick. I will try other British beers next time.

Sounds like hot buttered rum ... but with beer. Could be tasty with the right base. I doubt Sierra Nevada PA would taste very good, but a Scotch ale or a malty English cask ale could be pleasant.
