Beer Bread
 
http://www.cooks.com/rec/doc/0,164,1...238207,00.html

Basically:
Flour, sugar, and beer... Bake

I made it with wheat flour, and beer about as cheap as Keystone, Naty, anything you can get for under $15 for a 30 rack.

My next loaf I was thinking of using brown sugar and guiness, maybe a little honey in it as well. Or Smitwicks / Harp...

Any other suggestions or ideas or good beer bread recipies?

I'm preping to get my irish on next thursday...:punk::punk:

sounds good, might have to try that this weekend

Peepers 03-11-2011 10:52 AM

Eating left over Beer Bread at work really makes me want to crack a cold one open... 3 more hours till the weekend!!!

Pmedg 03-11-2011 10:54 AM

only 3, lucky you. the market doesnt even close for another 4 hours so im def here till at least then. quick question for you, when you baked the bread did it make you house/apt smell like beer badly? i made some slow cooked brats the other day with beer and my apt smelled for like 2 weeks of onions and beer, it was pretty brutal

My wife buys a batter for beer bread from Tastefully Simple. All you have to do is add the beer. So far my favorite beer to add is Shiner Bock and any type of Porter. Makes the house smell sweet and bready-like. Love it.

I didn't knowtice it, but I am a recent college grad so after cleaning basements with week old stale beer spilt every where, I'm kind of immune to any beer smell, especially fresh beer.

Although I did make some borbon crockpot beans a few weeks ago... that made the whole house smell for a week...

Pmedg 03-11-2011 11:05 AM

good deal, gf be damned i'll have to go for it sounds too good not to try and if she is upset i'll open some windows

Shiner Bock is probably the best beer ever! Went down to Texas once, with some friends who lived there for a year or so.. they introduced me to one of the best beers around.

I've had beer bread with Blue Moon, it was actually pretty darn good!

Hmmm... interesting site... Looks like I have a lot of fiddling to do...

I don't think I'm familiar with Shiner beers, would Sam Adams be similar to the Bock? or is there something else you might compair it to?

Well, Sam Adams Double Bock would be the closest, but a Double Bock is different than a Bock (up to 9.5% ABV vs 5.5 ABV average for regular Bock). Bock isn't really a flavor, but a type of beer (i wont go into it, but google it, or wiki it) but its very malty and semi-sweet with usually a reddish-brown color and crisp taste with a light mouth feel. In Texas, Shiner is huge, and rightfully so.

I like Sam Adams as well, but you cant really compare Sam to Shiner. Shiner Bock has a sweet, caramel crisp flavor that I enjoy as my fall back beer. Always have a 6 pack of some sort of Shiner in the fridge.

If anything, I guess A&B's Zigen Bock would be the closest, but do your self a favor and stick with Shiner.

Figures... Can't get Shiner in CT.

What a bummer!! You are in 1 of the 10 states that do not get Shiner. But i dunno, the north east coast states are small, might be worth the drive to PA to get some.

Try Zigen Bock then.

Shiner.com , select Spoetzl Brewery, then where to find.

And thats another brand we don't get... We can't even get Yuengling and its brewed two states away!!!

Would any bock style beer work?

Blue Moon sounds interesting... might have to try it. Never even thought of it.

Yeah, if you can find a good liquor store, and ask what their Bock selection is, im sure they can help you. Surely there is a micro-brew somewhere around you that makes a Bock.

I think I may have just found my golden chalest... or next beer...

Also good if you take a swig and refill the lost beer with blue curacao or some other low proof orange liqour.

Hammerwalk 03-11-2011 01:18 PM

i bet that would be even better with Shiner Hefeweizen.... Or just about any other unfiltered wheat beer (other than Hoegarten, that stuff is nasty)

I was talking about using an unfiltered beer with my father just earlier today... Great minds think alike i guess...:punk:

I've tried several types and Bud Light or Milwaukee's Best seem to do the best. I tried Killian's and even though it made a cool colored bread, it didn't have the taste I was looking for. I've also tried Pumpkin Jack. Won't do that again.

Beer bread with a bowl of fresh made chili.....mmmmmmm......

Mmmmmm...

Siera Nevada's spring seasonal is a golden bock...

Unleash the Beast! I gotta say Milwaukee Best is my favorite steak marinate beer...for some reason it just melts into the meat.

Shiner's good stuff, I've always been a fan. Good call on the hint of "caramel" taste.

Love me some Yeungling, but the only places I've ever seen it for sale are PA, OH, and for whatever reason GA. Every time my buddy comes back from his in-laws in PA I have him haul me back at least a couple of cases.

Oops...is that bootlegging?

We have it in FL, too. I've become a BIG fan! Try the Black and Tan.

My wife did a Beer Bread recently. Try it with a Long Trail Blackberry wheat.

My wife is a Tastefully Simple Consultant, so we've tried it several different ways (research of course :D). My favorite is with IBC Root Beer. Put some butter on it and fry it in a pan and it tastes like a donut. Or, even use it for grilled cheese.

I'm getting hungry.

I'm gonna have to get the wifey to buy more and try that. Never even thought of making donuts or frying it.
