Serves 2-4, and takes 20 minutes plus freezing time

4 egg yolks
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup homebrewed wort or finished beer

1. In a medium bowl, whisk the egg yolks with the sugar until they are pale and lemon colored. Bring the beer and the cream to a simmer in a heavy-bottom saucepan, then slowly pour over the sugar mixture, whisking constantly. Return the mixture to the pan and cook over low heat, whisking frequently, until it thickens.
