Very delicious. Since I was only making for me and my bf I didn't add the water, just used a beer called Taurino. Used uncooked brats and simmered them in the mix for about 15 minutes then grilled them in my cast iron skillet until browned, then popped them right back into the mix. Came out nice and juicy. Toasted some hot dog buns and served them topped with onions, sourkraut and mustard. Thank you for posting! will make again.

EXCELLENT! I had never made Brats before and decided to have a go at it for a college football game we were hosting at our house. So glad I did!! SUPER EASY!! We grilled them after boiling and they turned out PERFECT! Everyone enjoyed! Thanks for posting!

I made this for dinner tonight to make my hubby smile. He just loves brats; I can usually do without them. Tonight, however, even I ate a whole bratwurst. I used the uncooked Johnsonville brats (5 of them) and 4 bottles of JW Dundee's Honey Brown Lager. I didn't change the amounts of the spices, but only used 2 onions instead of 3. I actually simmered the brats, grilled them, then simmered them again and very briefly grilled them a second time, while I was waiting on a non-cooperative side dish. They came out tender and juicy, without some of the greasiness we usually get with a plain grilled bratwurst. Hubby said he wouldn't want them this way every time, but they were a nice change of pace.

Very easy to make. I made it with fresh bratwurst that I bought at a farmers market in Lancaster, Pa. It came out delicious
