For different effects, substitute dry white wine for the beer, salt for the fish sauce, lime or lemon juice for the vinegar, and double or even triple the honey. To spice it up, add cayenne or finely diced jalapeño.

Beer Mustard Recipe

• 3/4 cup brown or yellow mustard seeds, or a mix
• 1/3 cup beer (brown ale, porter or stout)
• 1/2 cup white wine vinegar
• 2 cloves garlic, minced
• 1 tablespoon fish sauce
• 1 tablespoon honey or maple syrup

1. In a bowl with a lid, stir together all ingredients. Set aside on your kitchen counter for a couple of days, or in the fridge for a few days. Forget about it for a while.

2. When you remember it’s there, pour everything into a food processor and purée until smooth. Use immediately and for the next several months. Makes about 1 1/2 cups.

For a true ferment, add the vinegar after the mustard has sat.

Do you have any recipes for mustard that do NOT require alcoholic beverages to be used in them? Or do you have a bias against those of us who for whatever reason cannot safely consume alcohol in any way, shape or form? I am asking because you have so many recipes on this site that require some form or another of alcohol in them (supposedly for flavor, which I very seriously doubt!) and yet you never have an equivalent to those recipes where there is a non-alcoholic substitution provided. This situation should really be remedied, otherwise, you are practicing discrimination against those who do not or cannot consume alcoholic beverages but would like to try more of your recipes.
