How to make your own bacon beer

I wrote about a professionally brewed bacon beer a while ago. It was a limited edition and had already sold out. Sorry to whet your appetite while simultaneously crushing your palatial dreams. Well today I come to your rescue – lets call this porcine bitter… the recipe is recorded in full here (it comes with an extreme language warning).

Step 1. Cook some bacon.


Step 2. Put the bacon in a jar, covered with whisky.



Step 3. Rest for 24 hours in a dark place, then chill it in the freezer for 4-6 hours.

Step 4. Strain it over and over again with a coffee filter – you’re aiming for a clear, but bacon flavoured, alcoholic liquid.

Step 5. The guy who invented this used porter – you could probably use any type of beer that you want to taste like bacon. He used 100 drops of bacon bourbon for every 350mL of beer.

  1. If you try making it please confirm whether drinking it induces tourettes or not.
    After reading the comments, as well as the original post, I have my concerns.
