How to Make Dundergløgg (Mulled Thunderbeer) LAST CHANCE

by Jane Z L

As a Christmas tradition in Scandinavia we make gløgg (mulled wine) with red wine, spices and raisins. Today I stumbled over a recipe for Dundergløgg......


  • 5 Liters Sweet Christmas beer
  • 2 ½ kilograms Sugar
  • 4 Potatoes
  • 200 Grams Cloves
  • 50 Grams Fresh ginger
  • 1 Teaspoon Cardamom seeds
  • 5 Stick cinnamon
  • 1 Vanilla pod
  • Candied bitter orange peel
  • ½ kilograms Raisins
  • 50 Grams Fresh yeast
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    The recipe says beer instead of red wine and the alcohol is not added but develops during fermentation! Too interesting to let go even though it has to ferment for 3 weeks!! Last chance for Christmas

    Step 2

    Collect your ingredients

    Step 3

    Add sugar and 1 litre of beer to a pot and heat it up to make the sugar dissolve

    Step 4

    Potatoes and ginger. Peeled and chopped.

    Step 5

    Everything goes into a bucket. Here it is ginger and potatoes

    Step 6


    Step 7


    Step 8

    Add the beer

    Step 9

    Dissolve the yeast in a little water

    Step 10

    And add the yeast to the bucket

    Step 11

    Stir ....

    Step 12


    Step 13

    Put on the lid or alternatively plastic to cover up. There must be holes in the cover as the fermentation develops air (I placed a peace of cotton in the hole to avoid things to fall into my brew)

    Step 14

    Let it rest for 3 weeks in a warm place. I'm curious to know the result ....😁 When ready it should be served warm
