Beer Ice Cream!

Well, I’ve finally done it! I’m making Ice Cream with Beer! Tall Grass Brewing Ale in fact!

I put out a shout on the Twittah for a recipe and boy did I get one! A recipe from SeriusEats.com looked amazing, so I thought I’d give it a shot!

I took 1 1/2 cups sugar, 4 tbs unsalted butter and 2 tbs water and mixed them, put over high heat till it started to smoke (Stirring a lot) then added 1 cup milk.

After the crazy bubbling died down, I added 2 cups heavy whipping cream and stirred for a long time over medium heat. When you add the liquid to the sugar, it turns into a huge lump and you have to dissolve it again.

Once dissolved, I added the liquid, one scoop at a time to 6 egg yolks whisking like crazy.

Once all of that was done, I added 1 tbs Vanilla Extract (Home Made of course!) and 8 oz of Tall Grass Ale.

The whole mess went into the fridge for 24 hours, then into the ice cream maker!

Now the only question is what the hell do I pair it with? ..............
A spoon of course!

~Cheers!
