Wild, odd, strange, fantastic and plain wrong ingredients.

Postby rlemkin » Thu Dec 04, 2014 23:09

A local brewery in Edinburgh (Pilot) has a beer filled with Parma Violets :party: and it was pretty damn amazing. Given that it'll be a while before I'm brewing again I think it could be fun to try and think up some crazy ingredients and things to brew that just might work.

I've been quite conservative in my brewing so far and primarily working on getting the basics right before I start experimenting. My first, rather tame, attempt was a blond ale with dried elderflowers and orange zest, although that was a bit underwhelming flavour wise.

I see a recent Brewdog beer had bacon in it... :vomit:

Have any of you experimented with unorthodox ingredients or have anything you think it could be fun to try?

Just look at any American brewing forum for ideas of what not to put in beer ;)
Mint, peanut butter, pumpkin, tequilla, chilli?????

Just remeber why these breweries are doing this (brewdog being the experts in it). Its all about publicity and ego not beer, they have businesses to run and need to stand out in a very competative market, so what do they do? come up with a gimmick which everyone tom dick and harriet in the beer world will hopefully blog tweet rave about.

These ideas may be ok for the odd pint but do you want five gallons of skittle's stout, or kangaroo testicle Pale Ale?

i certainly won't be using any weird flavours in my beer, beer should be beer and that's all i'll be brewing.i need convincing even to try the coriander and orange peel in a wheat beer.

I'm interested in the "wild" bit. Fruit beers from hedgerows, archaic (pre-hop) bittering and preservative herbs, that sort of thing.

Be a long time before I can get the time to start playing though... :(

I'm surprised no one's ever thought of cannabis beer. Would be like killing 2 birds with 1 stone :whistle:
