jdf is doing brats in beer on the grill for the first time and wants to do it right. What’s the correct brew?
pikawicca votes for Samuel Adams—nothing heavier than a lager—and always adds sliced onions.
tdmmcarthy21 gives us the recipe: Grill the brats over indirect heat for at least 20 to 25 minutes; they won’t burst and will have great grill marks. After they’re done, throw them in a pot with a couple of beers, maybe some water, lots of onion, fresh chopped garlic, some black peppercorns, and some mustard seeds. Let simmer 15 minutes to an hour. Perfect football Sunday chow.
CHEFBUCK insists that German brats need a German beer like St. Pauli Girl. Start a cabbage braise with vinegar, coriander, and beer. When half done, put your brats in and simmer for 5 to 10 minutes. Take the brats out and quickly grill them on high heat to get grill marks.
