Looking in my Cupboard

Recommended Posts

Hmmm, I found this lurking in the cupboard, wondering what if...

'Kirkland Sweet Mesquite Seasoning':  "Sea salt, black pepper, chili pepper, red pepper, oregano, dehydrated onion, garlic & red bell pepper, demerara sugar, natural mesquite smoke flavor, citric acid and silicon dioxide to prevent caking".

I suppose the sea salt, citric acid and silicon dioxide are the killers here?  🤔

Sea salt is definitely not.  I've had beers with it.  I'm interested in what others say, and how much to use for an lbk

 

Rick's maybe whacking my doll as I write....

I was thinking maybe I could make a tea with this, like I did the hops for my 3rd batch, in the french press.  For my variant on the MRB chili beer.  Wife thinks I'm nuts - so it might possibly work.  Or not -   I'd call it 'Sweetie Mesquitey'

i wouldn't be looking for any random thing that I can throw in a beer......but.....my local HBS sells AG and extract kits. Interestingly enough, one of them is called Tacohol...

I tried a sample and it wasn't my thing, but just saying, you're not the only one looking to make a beer with "alternative" ingredients.

Quick Overview

 
This recipe inspiration begins with a Belgian Witbier base and includes coriander, lime peel, ancho chili, cumin, sea salt, and just a hint of mesquite smoked malt. Garnish this with a lime and feel like you just visited the taco truck! Expect a wave of citrusy refreshment and just a hint of street taco deliciousness.
 
So, of all the different ingredients I was poking around with, this single recipe contains at least 3 (if not 4) of them!  Amazing.  What can't they make beer out of these days?  Except tuna.

Not tuna? I was thinking anchovies. Tuna might make a novelty Lenten beer.

On a serious note, if adding spicy peppers, go easy. More can be added in a future batch.

Thanks.  I was actually mulling over the idea that maybe I could figure out a way to brew with the Kirkland brand Sweet Mesquite meat rub.  Seriously.  It contains a lot of different pepper flakes, sea salt and (unfortunately) onion.  However, the wife did set aside some Anaheim and gypsy peppers from her garden for me if I wanted to make a chili beer.  I think she wants me to more than I do...
