Mulled Beer?!

Really tempted to try this recipe:

12-16 oz. decent-quality beer (the contents of your average bottle or can of beer)

2 tsp (10 grams) sugar

1 pinch ground ginger

1/4″ long 1 pinch ground nutmeg 1-2 pinch(es) cinnamon

1 pinch ground cloves

1 tablespoon (15 mL) honey 1 egg

Put beer in a small saucepan and add spices. Heat beer and spices in a small saucepan on low to medium-low heat. If the beer begins to boil, turn down the heat. The beer will begin to foam, but should subside after a minute or two.

Separate the egg white from the egg yolk and put in a small bowl. This recipe only uses the egg yolk. Add two teaspoons of sugar to the egg yolk. Beat the sugar and yolk with a whisk or fork until it becomes nearly white (it’s the hardest part!).

Optional but recommended: Temper the yolk mixture. To prevent “scrambling” the egg yolk mixture by the heat of the beer, you can temper the mixture by adding 1-2 tablespoon(s) of the hot beer to the yolk mixture very slowly and mixing thoroughly.

Add the yolk mixture slowly to the warm beer and continue to heat for 5 minutes. Stir gently. Add honey to taste. This likely will not have happened if you tempered the yolk mixture before adding it to the beer.
