Recipe for Disaster

After doing the Brewingnetwork's radio show and having talked about Durian beer, a few people have asked for my Durian Beer recipe ....
(you can jump to minute 49 if you would just like to hear about the Durian beer)

- so here it tis: (makes about 40 liters)

Buy one “fresh” Durian
wait 48 hours (for maximum odiferousness)
During this time the aroma may bother others - ignore their complaints*
open said Durian ,
separate Durian inside from sharp pointy semi-lethal Durian husk
save husk for novelty conversation piece or possible Halloween costume head piece
separate Durian flesh from seed
save flesh
Suck all flesh from seed or till flavor diminishes
Save seed for vain attempt at growing Durian tree indoors
Puree Durian flesh with a small amount of whiskey (preferably Mekong whiskey – product of Thailand),
Add pureed Durian Flesh to beer (adjust volume of beer for intensity desired)
Carbonate beer
Enjoy Durian beer
Smile a lot
repel most friends, family and neighbors with noxious aromas of Durian + Beer burps

* if they don't understand your love for the king of fruits - they will never really understand you - so clearly it would never have worked out anyway- it is better to lose them as friends now and save everyone involved the time and grief. After all you will still have your Durian (and the glow from that fire will surely light your world)
