So in Experimental Homebrewing by some flappy gum, old guys (cough), they list nothing but ales in the Favorite Experimental Styles chapter. As I read through it for a second time, I thought, what would be a good experimental lager style?
Maybe this is a stupid question, as a light and near flavorless beverage might be able to handle a myriad of flavors, but I'm not so sure. There's always that guy in the back row (the same one who answers every question from the homebrew meeting guest lecturer) that says something sure to stump me. "Hey, I've been putting all kinds of ingredients in Schwarzbiers for 20 years!"
So are there any thoughts out there? Or is a lager something that should just be left alone?
