Check out this great new beer book.
This one is about a couple of ice cream flavors made from beer. Well, not beer actually. They are made from wort.
Wort, as you beer nerds and homebrewers know, is unfermented beer. Wort is the stuff that beer is before yeast converts the sugars in it to alcohol and CO2. Wort is sweet, sticky, brown water that is full of beery goodness without the alcohol. Really, can you think of a better thing to make ice cream out of, other than milk, of course?
So, this ice cream is made with wort by Victory Brewing Co. in Pennsylvania and is available only at the brewery. It comes in two flavors which are based on the beer that the wort was supposed to become before the ice cream maker co-opted it, Triple Monkey and Golden Monkey.
