    " It was excellent "

    Very good!!! I replace the cayenne with chipotle, and keep the brats whole, serving on a bun. I also cook onions in the beer for drunken onions to serve with the brats. This is a staple for tailgating. Thanks for sharing!!

    OMG, Maureen!!! Love brats in beer...but that mustard sauce sounds delicious, too. Do you think I could replace sugar with Splenda? (I'm a diabetic) Can't wait for a Giants (our team) vs the Eagles (my daughter-in-law's team) to make this one. Thanks so much. Lorraine
