Hello BITOGers,

couple myths I heard over the years. Please dispel them is they are non-sense.

-wipe interior leaves with it
-add vitamin B5 to your crazy dry feet with a beer bath
-in addition to smoking, give a room a gorilla [c]art "nice" smell after a party
-boil it viking style (actually, i'm interested about his one particular experience)

Please add others....

Having found a 6 pack of "Lite" in front of the supermarket (in a bag and still cold) I welcome any alternative uses so I don't have to drink it.

I think beer has one primary use. It works really well in that application.

So, any alternative use is, well, alcohol abuse...

My sister used beer on her hair back in the 70s as part of her “conditioning “ process. She would only get one out of the six pack. Mysteriously the other 5 would disappear. Gosh I wonder why that happened? banana

Boiling bratwurst in it before grilling.

Also poured a bottle into the pan with the pork-loin I baked on Easter.

Beer has a couple uses that I'm aware of and NONE of them listed in your original post!

1. making ugly folks look good
2. pain relief
3. mental stimulation
4. allows a white man to dance
5. allows anyone to sing karaoke!
6. tastes great when mixed in seafood boils
7. works great to make beer bread


Just say NO to thin oils and M1!

Ditto on the bread:

Beer Batter Bread This is pretty much the recipe that my mom gave me 50 years ago, written on the back of a punch card.

Slightly sourdough-ish bread I used to make one like this before I got into sourdough starter. The vinegar and the beer give it a slightly tangy taste.

I forgot about the beer bread....
I used to have a bread machine longtime ago.
I used whole flour, teaspoon of sugar, dry yeast (unless regular yeast found at Polish stores), some bran cereals and some beer on hand.
It was WAAAAY better the any puffy-Fluffy store bought. And cheaper.

A lid full placed in your garden will attract and drown slugs.

Another use:
drinked with friends on a hot summer day, at a beer factory.
To this day, that was the most delicious in my memory. None of the beer festivals I tried, come close to this experience.....

Some people marinate tri-tip in beer. I personally haven't tried it but I have used Mexican Coke before using sous vide to cook.

While I have not talked to any slugs (I do not do those drugs), evidence from my garden indicates they are not beer snobs.

I do not know about the flavor beers, traditional malted and hopped beers works.
