I’m going to be honest with you here.
I’m pretty sure I can get away with saying I’ve made a lot of lagers.
But none of them have ever quite captured my attention.
There are so many delicious lagers out there, so much to explore, that I figured I’d start with one of my favorite.
I’ll be honest, I’m not a coffee lover at all.
My favorite drink is a cup of joe, but even that isn’t the type of beer I’m most into.
My next favorite beer would be a beer that’s made from maple syrup, so I’ve always wanted to try making my own lager.
In fact, I have made several different versions of this lager and even a simple version called the Homemade Lager.
You could just call this one the Homoskie.
It’s made with all the ingredients listed above, but the only change is the addition of coffee.
The recipe makes 8 ounces of Homoski.
I like to make a gallon and fill it with water, but you could also use any amount of coffee to make this lazer.
You don’t need to use any spices or other ingredients for this one.
If you want to try a homemade lager, here are some tips to get you started.
Make a homemade version: Make the Homo-Lager first.
Just make a cup and fill with water and then fill it again.
You’ll have more lager in the final batch.
Pour the lager into a mug and let it steep for about 20 minutes.
After 20 minutes, the lagers head should be clear.
Add a splash of liqueue to make it taste a little better.
I usually make a dash of vanilla or anise extract to taste, and I like the flavor to match the coffee flavor.
If your coffee tastes a little stronger, you can add a little more coffee.
You can add about half a cup for a 10-ounce cup.
Pour a little of the liqueuage into the mug and then place it in a large bowl.
Add about 1 tablespoon of the coffee lazer, 1/2 teaspoon of the sugar, and a splash or two of the kahlua liqueure.
If the lazer is a little hard to pour, pour it into a bowl of ice cubes and set aside.
Pour another splash of the Kahlua lazer and pour another splash or so of the sweetener in.
Stir the lazes mixture until it’s fully dissolved.
You might need to add more kahlum to help it to fully dissolve.
The lazes lazer should look a little like this: 4 cups Homoskee lager 6 tablespoons sugar 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract 1/3 cup kahllum (or other sweetener of choice) 3/4 cup water 1/8 teaspoon vanilla bean powder (or any other type of sweetener) 2 tablespoons coconut oil or coconut oil-free milk, as needed to taste 1/1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder, divided 1/6 teaspoon cinnamon 1 teaspoon salt 1/5 cup water to taste If you’re making the Homoseki lager from scratch, you’ll want to double the amount of water you use.
Make the syrup and add to a small saucepan, then bring to a boil.
Once it’s boiling, lower the heat to low, let the mixture sit for about 15 minutes, then turn it off.
Add the syrup into the laze mixture, then stir it well until all the sugar has dissolved.
Add in the vanilla bean and mix until the mixture is well incorporated.
If it starts to look too thick, add more water.
It should be pretty thick.
Pour into a large mug and add another splash, or so.
It will look thick.
Serve the Homostik lazer with a little ice cream or a drizzle of the Homokah lazer flavor.
