    Is brewing your thing? Into stills?

    Lets chat about that here. Im a budding amature and plan to eventually start catching wild yeast, even growing my own wheat for brewing beer. I think this thread will flourish given time, must be others in the community with an interest in brewing/distilling.

    This thread deserves an opening youtube video



    Aye, there be talk of drink here. Avast ye, sheath your sword place your iron on the table lets parlay with a piece of nine.

    Home brew and Dire Straits, fits like a glove.

    Recently made another home brew. This time i was aiming for more original, non hop'd.

    Juniper berrys
    Caraway seeds
    Liquid Malt
    Date syrup
    Filtered water
    Bakers yeast

    Boiled for about an hour to create the wort, added the berrys and seeds about 20 mins before starting primary ferment. This was a small batch, i don't yet have a carboy only 5 liter water containers. I could of got some more interesting yeast but ive had some good results from bakers yeast and it works well for me as i do alot of home baking. Wine yeast has produced good results for beer in the past. The yeast eased back after about 3 days, started a second ferment by adding what was left of the liquid malt and some brown sugar. The thing with bakers yeast is it goes nuts when brewing but only gets to a max of about 8% alcohol. Still it produces some interesting almost fruity flavors. Ive brought an airlock not yet got a hydrometer still learning my craft. I don't know what percentage the final result is, its very drinkable the juniper came through well with some carbonation and a lite head when poured. Its a refreshing brew not overly dry a hint of sweetness.

    I have a great interest in creating ancient drinks, would love to experiment with mead someday.
