Cooking with beer is always fun, as each beer has its own taste after it cooks down. Hops bitterness can come through if you choose heavy hopped beers. I like to cook with stouts. Always buy more cooking beer than you need. True story, bros.

Nothing's for certain--it could always go wrong.
Come in when it's raining; go on out when it's gone.

Sounds good, I always like Chili with beef, not beans only. I have a gringo stomach so I'd back off the chili powder, but increase the beer.

We don't have Kiltlifter here either, but CDF is right about beers. I was thinking about two to three bottles of very hoppy IPA or a Double IPA in the chili and three or four bottles for the cook. :)

It does add a lot of flavor. I think the microbes in beer add depth of flavor. Ale definitely works better than Bud Light. hehe
Kiltlifter is lighter than some Scottish brews for sure. It's made in Phoenix.

When you add the beer to the mix starting out it gets this orangish head on it then turns red as it cooks out. I think its from the fat in the chorizo. It cooks down pretty fast.
Today it should be better so we're going to make some corn fritters on out aebleskiver pan. Yums

A Texas thing use Shiner Bock in the chili. Also no beans in real chili, unless you call it Chili with beans to make it stretch further. Then you have to beg forgiveness or the Chili Queens of San Antonio will arise from their graves and slap you silly.
Also you only use ground beef if you can't find a suitable chuck roast and round steak to slice and dice.

You can counter the bitterness of hops with something like soy sauce or one turnip. A small one.

Or brats. But I don't let Bud Lite in the house.
Miller lite then. LoL.
