    While the brats are smoking, pulse the mustard seeds in a spice grinder until ground into a coarse powder. In a small bowl, combine mustard seeds with beer, vinegar and salt. Mix well and set aside. Don't worry if it starts out a little runny, the mustard seeds will absorb moisture as they sit.
