Want to make a super simple recipe that will wow your friends and family!? Make your own beer mustard! I’m actually a little annoyed at how easy this was because if I knew then what I know now, I would have been making beer mustard for a while now! Now that I have tried pale ale beer I want to make some more beer mustard but with stouts and porters or make a spicy beer mustard. But for today, I am using a Pale Ale from Lighthouse Brewing and making a simple grainy mustard.
Tasman Pale Ale, Beer Review
First, let me tell you about this Tasman Pale Ale from Lighthouse Brewing.
A – pours with a very slight haze, dark orange-yellow in colour, frothy white bubbles that linger.
S – smells of grassy hops with citrus, grapefruit peel
T – tastes grassy, herbal hops, spruce or pine, some tropical fruit and caramel malts
M – mild bodied, medium carbonated, citrus and herbal hop bitterness lingers
O – overall a nice balanced beer with a nice hop finish.
Pale Ale Grainy Beer Mustard
Now onto the easy grainy beer mustard!
Put the mustard seeds into a bowl and pour beer and vinegar over top. Mix well, cover with saran wrap and refrigerate overnight.
The next day, pour the soaked mustard seeds into a food processor, add brown sugar, maple syrup and salt, and mix to combine well.
Serve with pretzel sticks, on your favourite sandwich or bake with chicken. It’s easy and tastes amazing!
