Use A French Press to Add Flavor to Your Beer
Infusing your beer is a great way to add extra flavors and spice up your usual brew. The best part? You only need a few ingredients and a french press to make it happen. Looking for inspiration? Serious Eats has a list of spot-on infusions, like Sierra Nevada Pale Ale with Grapefruit and Ginger, Lindeman's Framboise with Cocoa Nibs, and more. Check 'em out below.
Lindeman's Framboise is a bit tart, as a good lambic should be, but it's also a good bit too sweet. If you add cocoa nibs, though the bitterness in the nibs tones down this sweetness and balances out the sourness. The dark chocolate flavors blend with the raspberries in the beer to produce a deliciously drinkable dessert.
