Mike's Oktober-Beer-Fest Moose Sausage Recipe


Batch Size: 20lbs Meat 60/40 Moose to Lean Ground Pork
28 gram Black Pepper  
12 gram Caraway Seeds  
8 gram Mace  
12 gram Ginger  
5 TBSP Marjoram  
100 gram Salt  
4.5 cup or 2 x 473ml Cans of Beer  


  • Use your favorite beer, I've used IPA and Stout with great results for both.

  • Whenever I make my own spice mix  for sausages I always thoroughly mix the dry ingredients on their own in a bowl.

  • Add spice mixture to meat along with liquid ingredients and thoroughly combine by hand in a large meat tote.

  • Before stuffing into casings test-fry a sample. At this point you can add more meat or more seasoning to make sure they taste the way you want them.

  • There is no binder in this recipe and I have no trouble with meat coming apart even when making burger patties from this mixture.



These Okto-beer-fest are another hit for backwoods boil-ups. They have a lot of flavour especially with a stout beer such as Guinness in the mix. Definitely not your average Oktoberfest sausages!



Cheers, MIKE
