    I was wondering who has made these and what beers were the best? I would think ST choklat and creme brulee would be nice...i was also wondering if anybody tried making them with Tommy Knockers Imperial Nut Brown, i heard that has a strong maple flavor

    I usually make my pancakes/waffles using a box that all you add to it is oil, water and eggs...so if i wanted to make beer pancakes would i just replace the water with beer?

    I like my pancakes super light and fluffy, so prefer using cheap, fizzy beer. Pumpkin beers are a close second.

    and yes, you just replace the water with beer if you're doing the just-add-water mix.

    I made some pancakes with Founder's Porter and they were great.

    I have used KBS, they were not good. If I try it again I will not replace 100% of the water with beer, I would try 70% or 60% beer.

    Last year Sean Paxton put a recipe in BYO for cooking with Hefeweizzen and I did the Hefe pancakes that were fairly good. Included Wheat DME, caramelized bananas, Hefe syrup, and clove DME whipped cream. If I did it again I would do the Hefe in instant pancake mix.

    Wow I never even considered this. I think I might have to pick up a Pumking to make these this coming week. Great idea!

    I'm planning to try this tomorrow with either ST Chokolat/Mokah/Javah or Rogue Hazelnut Nectar, brown sugar and blueberries, should be awesome.

    Essentially the same, waffles with brooklyn BCS were great, they'd be great as pancakes though. I'd like to try them with some lazy magnolia southern pecan too.....now I really want breakfast.

    Peak Organic`s Maple Collaboration is good, but scale back on syrup once the pancakes are cooked due to the strong maple flavoring in the beer. A lighter melted butter is all that is needed on top of the pancakes.

    I've played around a lot with pancakes. Made some Cranberry oatmeal porter pancakes. Pretty tasty.

    I am thinking the choklat replacing the water would be absolutely amazing. I would also put 3 spoons of peanut butter and one spoon of really hot water (to thin out PB) in a mug, mix, and then add to batter. Delicious!
