Angus, if you don't like to drink Guinness, you can cook with it!

Within reason - I remember (just) at a really early drag race meeting at Santa Pod (c.1976) my mate trying to cook burgers for breakfast and had forgotten the cooking fat (pause for Carry On aficionados to giggle) so he used stout - probably Newcastle Brown, maybe Guinness - whatever it was brown. Inedible. QED.

I suppose you could slow cook beef with it but I'd still rather play safe with a good London Stout...

No beef really, just pointing out the analogy does not work for everybody - a bit like Windows 8 really.

OK, two things are wrong there.

1. Minced meat, therefore burgers, contain a certain amount of fat; you don't need to add any extra fat to cook them, unless you have some kind of meat that is extra lean and has then had water added to increase its weight. The moral of this is to always make your own burger patties from meat that you have bought from a butcher you trust.

2.  Dog (i.e., Newcastle Brown Ale) is certainly neither stout nor porter. It's sweeter, less bitter, far lower proportion of burned malts, no coffee-bean flavour.

At least 2 Keith - I hasten to add, we didn't actually eat it, our friends did (or at least tried to) I think what was also wrong was abuse of Newcastle Broon - this you can drink - the deathly hangovers they were all nursing and the complete absence of alternative carbs to make a cure!

Beer is notoriusly difficult to use in cooking.  Like in beer batter.  And I've also roined a couple of bread pieces and a sauce.  You can easily get it wrong, because you are boiling off the alcohol, and with it goes the sweetness, leaving an ashy taste that may not go well with food.  It's not like cooking with wine.

Posts moved as they were off topic for thread.

BTW - Newcastle Brown Ale is no longer as good as it used to be, now that it's no longer actually BREWED up here in Newcastle. Tastes funny to me. I blame it on the North Yorkshire water - I think they are peeing in it! Sad

I made a note in my diary on the way over here. Simply says; "Bugger!"
