SO HOW'D IT GO?

Awesome! I had no problems with the recipe amounts.

I used penne macaroni and Austin amber beer.

Thank you :)

This was pretty good.  I would recommend adding some parsley for flavor and way less macaroni because it pretty much became like a really wet macaroni and cheese. It was lovely for a rainy night dinner. 

Awesome, I'm glad it was good! Hmm, don't know what happened with the pasta. The big pot I made when I created it came out in a non overload quantity. Thanks for letting me know!

Is the 1 1/3 cup mac uncooked and then later it gets cooked in the milk and beer?  (ps, Holy Mother this sounds delicious)

It is uncooked and it later gets cooked in the milk and beer.
