Where are you keeping all this? Iím hoping to make 2 or 3 gallons and Iím having a tough time convincing my parents to let me keep that much in our fridge for 2 months, much less a full year.

high five, more dead than alive

Time to git er done this weekend. I'm an Alton Brown loyalist but with the addition of coconut rum. Last year we were down to a half gallon when the fridge door knocked the precious nog from my tipsy hand and coated the floor. It was like a close family member had died.

My god, it's full of !

Store mine in half gallon mason jars and they fit in the the champagne/magnum area at the bottom of a couple wine fridges I have. Also store some at my brothers because his fridge has the space for it. Can be a struggle to fit big or multiple batches in a fridge. Only have a counter depth big fridge and the year I stored it all in there it took up a ton of space. Maybe look for wider/shallower containers than jars/bottles were you could stack stuff on top of it.

Since we're talking about storage, be aware that if you use the flip top bottles or containers from Ikea like I do (the Korken line), the glass is a little thin. I use one for keeping filtered water in the fridge, and the back of my fridge froze the bottle and subsequently shattered it. I think even low alcohol content egg nog should be freeze resistant, but I nevertheless shifted some stuff around to keep all of my nog away from the coldest part of the fridge (as well as bringing up the temperature setting a hair).

I have released the Kraken!
(No pics, because you all know what a gallon jar of eggnog looks like.)
I used the Joy of Cooking recipe, but I only used 750ml of rum (just a hair over 3 cups) because I'm a cheap bastard and didn't want to buy a 1500ml bottle. I also broke a yolk into my whites whilst separating the eggs.

Finally got around to making the eggnog, only did two batches this year instead of four so we wont be sharing them like we usually do

Going to try making some homemade nog this year. The Alton Brown recipe sounds good but that is a poo poo ton of sugar. The bitten world one looks like too much booze for my family at Christmas. I'm thinking of trying this one:

I've got some aged rum, so I think I'll try that plus I'll pick up some nice Brandy to do a mixture.

If youre going for fresh eggnog you should also look into some of the ones that end up being a really thin custard.

How did the toasted cream go for the people who chose to use it? I just finished my 24 hour sous vide off of the Serious Eats recipe, and I'm considering my options in terms of how much to put in.

Hey! So, while I've made the boozy 12 month aged egg nog in the past and it turned out amazing, thanks to this thread, I was wondering if anyone had a good non-alcoholic recipe that turns out a nice thick custardy egg nog. The people I make it for don't really love the boozy stuff so I wanted to try to make something that's more like the store bought, but better.

When the light turns green, you go. When the light turns red, you stop. But what do you do when the light turns blue with orange and lavender spots?


I drank my batch before the holidays, it was too good.

I want to make some more with toasted sugar and toasted cream.

I dont have a recipe because I made it almost a decade ago but any eggnog recipe that has you simmering and straining the eggnog is probably a good one
