There are some guys by where I live that make ice cream out of a local brewery's lager. Tastes pretty good, and I believe there is still an alcohol content to it. Perfect for hot days.

While I do like beer in cooking and, well, just in general. No thanks.

I once tried a root beer float.

It was even worse than you think it is. So don't.

Beer and ice cream can be good if paired well. But I see no point in adulterating very good beers with ice cream (or ice cream with lousy beer).

The beer ice cream I've had wasn't bad.

Rum raisin ice cream (very popular here) never once made me want rum when I was a kid...because it's disgusting. As much as I love beer, I can't see this being tasty for kids...
 
2013-04-02 01:50:52 PM
You don't need anything fancy... just make beer floats.    They are good.

Chicks don't appear to like them quite as much as guys, but that is beside the point.

Young's Double Chocolate Stout plus vanilla, chocolate or coffee ice cream = beer float = gud.

Also done it with Brooklyn Double Chocolate, Ipswich Oatmeal Stout and Wachusett Milk Stout.  Any sweeter stout will work though.

Meh. I could have been delicious, if they didn't decide that chocolate made the best "tan", and didn't make it 75+ percent "tan". Might as well just get chocolate ice cream at that point.

/I would, however, love it if they sold the stout ice cream alone. That top 8th was delicious.

Moorenko's Ice Cream out of the DC Metro area made Guinness ice cream for my restaurant every March. We were an Irish gastro-pub and served the living hell out of it. It wasn't something I'd go down to the local Baskin-Robins for on a regular basis, and was only truly useful in certain applications, but it wasn't bad by any means.

Used to do a deep fried Irish Mars Bar (our Milk Way bars) that was first coated in powdered sugar and dredged in funnel cake batter. Then I'd serve it with a scoop of Guiness Ice Cream and a scoop of Bailey's Ice Cream with a Bailey's creme anglaise and hot fudge.

I make a lot of ice cream and have been thinking about doing one with beer lately. I've gotta think about the flavor I want to go for and the texture issues you can run into when using alcohol. I'd love to try out Revolution Brewing's Coffee Eugene Porter.

I do make a salted caramel bourbon pecan ice cream that is farking delicious.

The owners of Alaskan Brewing Company love serving vanilla ice cream topped with their smoked porter and fresh raspberries. It's very nice.

I've tried this Guinness icecream recipe before, with great success. All the recipes in that blog work very well.

Thanks. Is it really sweet or does it balance out with the beer? That's about 30% more sugar than recipes for batches that size usually call for.
 
2013-04-02 03:12:10 PM
I may not be the best person to judge that, as I have quite a sweet tooth. I thought it was nicely balanced though.

Can the great minds that figure out how to merge beer and ice cream dedicate their skills elsewhere?

I do this all the time.. well.. its better to make a beer sorbet than ice cream if you want to keep the hooch in it. Most times that I've seen beer ice cream, the beer is a reduction to flavor the custard. they usually taste horrible.

We make a chocolate porter during the holidays and it's my favorite beer to do this with.
Last season i made a batch of sorbet with raspberries. to make it, I took a 22 ounce bottle of the chocolate porter, a package of whle raspberries, 2 ounces of simple syrup and ran the whole mess in a blender till the berries no longer existed in thier natural state, and the beer had gassed out due to the turbulance of the blender. strain the results through a very fine siethe to gather the seeds from the berries.

Chill this down in the freezer for about an hour or until the temp is about 34F.

prep the ice cream maker and churn as normal.

The beer has not been cooked at all there has been no chance for the ethonal to have been boiled off and you are using it straight. the ethonal will act as an anti-freeze, as well the sugar. so you gotta get the initial mix really cold, and then you gotta churn the hell out of it.

takes me about 45+ minutes of churning to get good results. but the end product is well worth it.

The wife has me make her beer milkshakes.
She says they are delicious.

A gracious helping of vanilla bean ice cream
Guinness Extra Stout (maybe a few tablespoons)
Chocolate syrup (enough to flavor it)
Add milk to get the right texture/consistency

That's it, and stir (or blend) until nice and milkshake-y.
Enjoy!

It's not so bad. Well, it can be bad. Depends entirely on the beer(s) used. I had one with a good stout. Used a lambic as drizzle.

I've had a beer float and it was actually pretty damn good. Can't remember the beer. Miller Genuine Draft or something like that. Nothing terribly exotic.
 
2013-04-02 05:04:39 PM
sigh. because it might taste good, children may like it, therefore adults cant have it. just like we can't have flavored cigarettes anymore either. i propose we kill all children so we can have our nice things back.

I had Guinness-flavored ice cream while in Ennis, Ireland. It really was pretty great.

Wine ice cream is surprisingly good. I recommend Mercer's, from the Finger Lakes.

You're welcome.

Amy's Ice Cream in ATX always has two flavors made with alcohol at every location, and since they make their own small-batch ice cream, it's not always the same two at each location. My favorites are "the Dude" (white russian) and Shiner Bock. Their hippy-dippy marketing/image is painful to deal with but it's worth it.

chocolate oatmeal Milk strong stout.

Chocolate because, fark you, its chocolate.. that's why.. add it as cocoa extract at bright..

Oatmeal adds a creaminess to the body.

milk.. i.e. Lactose sugar adds an additional overall sweetness to it.

should be a strong ale, and not an imperial.. Imperials over dose EVERY THING! big, malty,, creamy, sweet. low hop profile,  just enough to balance. probably just cluster for the whole hop bill honestly.

different flavored extracts could be used at the bright tank to give you an over all back flavor..
