What about milk, cheese, fermented foods like pickles or sauerkraut, mustard, and catsup?  Also, others you might think of.

I would think vinegar would have a negative effect on yeast as it is used as a preservative. I have however wondered about tomatoes???

The gentleman (now deceased) who taught me how to brew would drink almost anything.  One day he mixed half a bottle of mass-market lager with tomato juice and offered it to me.  I thought it was a waste of both ingredients.


I think that's just a Clamato. Very popular with the hispanics around here. Can be purchased premixed at just about any grocery store.

Yep.

There‚Äôs a lot more in a Clamato Beer than just tomato juice and mass market lager.

We used to call them Bloody Beers - using Bloody Mary mix with a beer.  It was a reasonable substitute for the real thing when no vodka was on hand.  A Brunch time weekend drink.

I do like a spicy Bloody Mary especially when hung over on vacation and needing a drunk -- errr jump start.

Amen, to that.  One, without the clam juice, was enough for me.
It's easier to read brewing books and get information from the forum than to sacrifice virgins to appease the brewing gods when bad beer happens!
