Thread Starter 

i am just wondering if anyone has made beer jellies before.

i am doing a beer theme night and have been challenged to use different beers in every course!!

Ive eaten it, but never made it myself. I imagine beer and gelatin should make you a jelly, bit of sugar too if you want it sweeter.

Could make a beer sorbet if it's a hot day..

Are you after ideas for the other meals or do you have some already?

Look towards a fruit infused Ale...Try a Lambic, peach or raspberry.  You could also use a hard cider the american brands are a lot sweeter

try mixing stout with a little pomegranate molasses, or agave syrup

try with the fruit but add a pinch of salt along with the sugar it might cut out the bitterness. Also maybe something like a porter instead of a stout? just a thought i havent done too much with beer in cooking. are you using geletain or agar agar?

Look to your local Irish pub for inspiration!  They have been getting away with putting blackcurrant syrup in Guinness for ages...will definitely take the bitterness down...other pub-inspired ideas... a "shandy" version...half sprite and half beer, might be a little more palatable..., or a "snakebite"...essentially beer and cider mixed.  Straight Magner's gelled sounds delicious to me...or might be cool to gel a black and tan in two colors...okay now this is just getting crazy...
