Indeed—Nerd Approved’s oatmeal, coffee, stout has just received its bacon addition. Now comes the daily taste-testing to determine the appropriate amount of bacony beer flavor.
Of course, I will probably need quite a bit more bacon than I put in the hop bag to get the flavor that I want. Though I cooked the bacon down as much as possible without burning, I’m still a bit paranoid about fat leeching into the beer. So I’m starting with a relatively small amount of bacon just to get a baseline, then I’ll likely ramp it up over the next couple of days depending on how it goes.
