  3. Stir in mustard and cayenne, then whisk in beer and Worcestershire sauce.
  4. When mixture is uniform, turn heat to low and stir in cheese, again stirring until smooth.
  5. Remove from heat and pour into a broad container to set (you can refrigerate for up to a day at this point).

  7. Serve immediately.

Excellent rarebit. Cut the recipe in half, and substituted dijon for powder, but it still came out perfect. Exactly what I wanted!
