Gustungling: Caramelizing beer post-pour in Memphis

June 30, 2011 By: grant Category: Beer in the news, How to, Memphis

Boscos posted on its Facebook page yesterday a video of Zane Lamprey, from Drinking Made Easy, getting his craftbrew gustungled on Monday. Apparently, that’s the process of dipping a hot metal rod into a beer to caramelize some of the malt character. I’m no beer genius but I’ve never heard of the technique and my Google-Fu produced few results, aside from this brief forum thread. If you know more, please share. The short video is below.
