I made Guinness Cupcakes

So while I boiled my Vanilla Porter tonight, I decided to make some stout cupcakes with a bottle of Guinness that’s been kicking around the refrigerator that I’ve been unable to bring myself to drink. The tops of these guys developed a delectable slightly caramelized crust that was pretty amazing. The recipe also calls for 2 sticks of butter, I’d probably drop it to 1.5 sticks of butter, they were a little oily. This recipe made about 19 cupcakes for me. You could substitute porter for stout if you don’t have any on hand.

Anyone still homebrew?

I just bottled a six malt amber and am working on my own amber ale using some rye grains.
I do.

I have a wheat that I am going to be bottling in the next couple of days. I was actually just thinking about what to buy next.
I have a vanilla porter in primary right now(boiled on thursday) and I have an amber that’s bottle conditioning.

I’m gonna get a kolsch going in about a week for a lawnmower beer, followed by a citrusweizen, and another go-round of american red.
