Health and homebrew


Adam Best • Cincinnati, Ohio asks,

Recently I have been on a health kick. I’ve been working out, taking multivitamins, and drinking protein shakes. This brings me around to an idea I have. For muscle building you need carbohydrates and protein. I know all health experts say alcohol is bad for you, but beer has carbohydrates. What would be a good way to add protein to beer to make it a muscle beer with protein and carbs? Just an idea; so after a hard workout I can grab a homebrew and say it’s for my health.

I am sure there are many opinions about how to answer your question. You could add all sorts of additives to a beer to make some sort of beer/protein booster drink, but
