Expert Tips

  • To broil, place bratwurst on broiler pan; broil 4 to 6 inches from heat using times above as a guide.
  • For a richer beer flavor, use a heartier dark ale or stout.
  • For an easier fit to the buns, cut the brats in half lengthwise before grilling them.
  • Cook the brats in beer ahead of time; cover and refrigerate them. Cook, cover and refrigerate the sauerkraut mixture. When you’re ready to eat, grill the brats and heat the sauerkraut mixture on the top of the stove.
  • Enjoy the brats with purchased German potato salad or regular potato salad, and beer.
