I tried this and added leeks & tabasco sauce and it was amazing!

I just posted almost the exact same recipe to my site (great minds think alike!). Unfortunately, this great mind thinks a lot slower than yours, seeing that you created this about a YEAR before me... lol. Wasn't it amazing?

When you say, "beer," do you mean industrial lager or have you used a different style?
