Fixed this last weekend for a family reunion so I ended up tripling the ingredients. I fixed it over my gas grill, so I briefly grilled the brats before adding them to the water. Instead of adding the lemon, I just added 1 tbls of juice so it didn't overwhelmed. We all loved it, though it is a bit messing. Lay down several layers of newspapers and have a large stack of napkins and paper towels. Great for outdoor feasts but I would caution serving this indoors.



Great comfort food that reminded me of home! I added an extra bottle of beer (used pale ale - all I had)... Never skimp on beer in a boil like this. :) Also, to save time, I broiled the brats in the oven. The only thing I would change is to not cook the lemons in the boil. I might add the juice from one SMALL lemon (or omit all together), but cooking the lemons in the pot saturated the onions with the lemon flavor. They tasted terrible - we couldn't eat them.. Onions are a MUST with the beer brats, so it was a disappointment to not be abel to eat them. In my opinion, save your lemons for on the table! Otherwise this was a great recipe!!



I have had this on many occasions, but this version was the best. I added an extra beer and a little more Old Bay. It is delicious leftover, too! Serving melted butter and lemon on the side was a winner!
