Are you sure you would want graham crackers in your beer? Just take a look at the history of the graham cracker.

Back around 1830 there was a guy named Sylvester Graham who was some sort of nutrition scientist pf the time. He promoted the use of a type of whole grain flour that he developed (obviously Graham flour) for it's heath properties. To get folks to actually eat the stuff he also developed the Graham cracker. This supposedly had all sorts of health benefits. First, it would stop the craving for alcohol. Leading it to be promoted as a cure for alcoholism. Second, it would help stop those nasty sexual desires, a way to stop promiscuity.

Now, are those really properties you want in your beer??? A beer that stops you from drinking beer and getting laid????? :lol:
