Why does beer need to be flat to make bread?

loveskittles | Dec 22, 2005 05:40 PM

Now that I am armed with ideas of how to keep my rising bread warm (thanks Chowhounds!), I want to find a use for some leftover beer and thought I would make beer bread. Most of the recipes I have found say to use flat beer and I can do that but am curious as to why. I'm not a beer drinker so, my beer knowledge is quite limited. I presume I just open the can and let it sit around awhile?

Want to stay up to date with this post?
