This was a great recipe for me to start making brats with my new grinder/stuffer. I thought the salt and pepper were to heavy for my taste. I would recommend that you add less of each, fry a patty before stuffing and judge for yourself. I also added caraway seed to taste. I will make my adjustments and keep my version of this recipe.
Made these following the recipe exactly. Nice bite from the pepper, I love them. Used a strong Scotch Ale for the beer. Never buying beer brats again!
