This was delicious. I didn't make the full recipe, 4 brats, 1 12 oz bottle of beer, and the rest of the ingredients reduced accordingly. I used corn starch to thicken the sauce. Served with red cabbage and mashed potatoes, just like you told me to. :-D Next time I will make extra for leftovers. Thanks so much for a great dinner!
