Cooking Beer Suggestions:
With turkey meat much like it’s fowl cousin chicken, there isn’t a ton of unique flavor; it’s very subtle. I have found that using beers that use a good percentage of melanodin malts add a rich flavor to the turkey, enhancing the maillard reaction that occurs during the cooking process. Beer styles like German Bocks, Doppelbocks, American Brown Ales, English Brown Ales, Dunkelweizen, Vienna Lagers, Roggenbier, Scotch Ale | Wee Heavy, Irish Red Ale and Märzens | Oktoberfest all compliment the flavors of turkey with this beer brine recipe. Below are some other beer style and brewery versions of this recipe, each adapting the beer brine to fully utilize the beers nuances in flavoring the turkey.
