  1. Mr. Beer Kit: Vienna Octoberfest w/Booster Prepare to instructions using spring water and ferment for at least two weeks. What you’ll need: 3oz Oscar Mayer Bacon Bits (The only ingredient is bacon) 1 pint non-flavored Vodka Sanitized glass jar Hops bag/cheese cloth Wait two weeks for the batch to ferment. Jan 14, 2012: Two days before bottling, place the entire package of bacon bits into your Hops bag and tie it tight. Place into your sanitized glass jar and add the pint of vodka. Seal the jar and shake. Place the jar on the dining room table or counter top and shake it every time you walk by. On bottling day, place your keg in a “Ready to Pour” location and allow to rest for at least an hour. While the keg is resting, open your jar of vodka/bacon and with clean hands squeeze the bacon bag until all the vodka has been removed. Trash the bacon bits, wash your hands… Add sugar to your bottles as normal and add 2 shots (2 oz) of mixture to your bottles. Take 2-3 fresh Hatch Green Chillis add 1 shot of vodka and puree’ in a sanitized blender. Push this mixture through a strainer and place a tablespoon in with your vodka/bacon mixture when bottling. Cap, shake and store. I'm okay with the results - let me know how yours turns out....
  2. It worked! I am drinking a Bacon/Green Chilli beer while watching NASCAR. The beer came out great. Just a hint of bacon and chilli without overpowering the basic beer.

  5. The hydrometer works okay for estimating the ABV of your beer. You have to take two readings; the first after you complete the preparation and have it kegged. The second reading is done just before bottling. Follow the directions that come with your hydrometer, but basically you subtract the second numbers from the first to get your ABV.

  7. All right New Mexico Brewers... Here we go. New Mexico Users Group: NEW MUG. Sounds almost as good as bacon beer doesn't it? Bottling my next round of Bacon Beer and a few Green Chilli bottles. I'll let you know how it comes out and post a recipe if it works.
  8. Brewing here in Alamogordo. Working on perfecting my bacon beer recipe and looking at using fresh green chillies in my next batch.
  9. Hi everyone. I'm working on (finishing) my fifth batch of home brew and would like to try a bacon flavor. Brianna at Mr. Beer sent me a recipe using Octoberfest Vienna and Hickory Smoke. Does anyone have experience with this? or a different idea? I'm placing my next order very soon. Thanks in advance...
