Homebrewing Update: The Beer That Shall Not Be Named

A while back I said we made a batch of beer intending to be in time for the Harry Potter movie as a recreation of the butter beer. Well, things didn’t work out as planned, but it was still an excellent brew. The butterscotch extract did not come through at all, but some serendipitous combination of that plus the cinnamon, coriander and other spices plus a hint of creaminess from the addition of unfermentable lactose to the beer made a complex taste that works great.

It ended up not being butterbeer, but because we wanted it to be Harry Potter themed, this is “The Beer That Shall not Be Named.” We started with 50 bottles but have somehow gotten down to 12 in a hurry. Better make some more soon.
