Tried this, using light cream, and scotch ale as substitutes. Quite tasty on a cool evening. Recommend that you simmer for the full recipe (I cut it short), else your soup will be thin. Added some ground vege "beef" to it the next day to make a tasty dip, also! This one will come out again in the winter!
