comment What kind of beer for beer brats?
that's... A really fiddly technique! That said, I could kinda see it working; the common technique (when grilling for a group) of moving the brats back and forth between the grill and the beer tends to produce reasonable results, this is just... waaaay more obsessive.

Try throwing the sauerkraut in with the beer some time... Brats get a little tangy, kraut gets a little beery, a good time is had by all.

FWIW, if you can get non-pre-cooked brats, the extra time spent cooking to render down the fats gives the beer ample time to flavor the meat. And to be absorbed by the cook.

comment What kind of beer for beer brats?
Normally, I wouldn't diss either of those suggestions, but... You're boiling or braising a sausage in it. Go cheap - subtle flavors really don't come through, at least in my experience. mfg's suggestion sounds about right; save the decent stuff to drink while you're grilling...

comment Why Buckwheat Pancakes?
I've no evidence of this, but... Buckwheat's lack of gluten would seem to lend itself more readily to something like pancakes than, say, bread (not that you can't use it for bread, but it won't have a great texture). That said, many recipes also call for wheat flour. FWIW, I used to love buckwheat... Then I developed an allergy to it. Vomiting really kills the enjoyment.

comment How can I know whether a potato is too old?
@hhh: I think your best question here is "how can I know whether a potato is too old?" If you focus on that, keeping in mind existing questions on the topic, you should have better luck avoiding OT answers...

@yossarian: quite true. There are some bags I've never been able to pull open... Including the sugar I bought yesterday :|

comment Do rice cookers bake good cakes?
The first requirement will almost certainly depend on your rice cooker. The second will depend a lot on your cake recipe...

comment Vegetarians and nutrition
Quick note ('cause I did a double-take on the second suggestion): 'round here (Southwest US), a lot of refried beans are cooked with lard. Which is delicious. But definitely not vegetarian. Check labels...
