Ice Cream Beer Pointers:
- Use powdered ice cream available on Amazon, the restaurant store and other online retailers
- Used about 2.5-3lbs for a 5 gallon batch, you could add more or less to taste (remember start with lower amounts)
- Strain the ice cream mix if there are any solids after chilling
- It is recommended to “hydrate” the powdered mix In Hot water and allow to cool before adding to the keg. You can pitch dry but hydrating will provide better results.
- Ice cream has fat and sugar so you must store your kegs cold
- Bottle conditioning this beer is not recommended
- Treat the ice cream like lactose but be mindful of the sugar
Thanks to Rob Myers for the pointers on this Iron Brewer challenge!
