Default Experimental All-Supermarket Recipe

I had an interesting idea for an experiement.

Try and produce a beer entirely made of ingredients bought in a typical supermarket.

For yeast, easy, Bread yeast.

Grains are a bit more difficult, Perhaps Ovaltine used as DME, or steeping some Grape Nuts (made of mostly wheat and malted barley.

There's no chance of finding hops in the supermarket, so I was thinking of substituting chamomile tea.


Anyone have any thoughts, ideas for ingredients, etc? Has this been tried before?

As soon, as I develop a recipe, I'll try brewing a 1 gallon batch, and let everyone know how it turns out.

I can laugh about this, because I was thinking about it the very day that the GAP showed up.....Fortunately, I thought better of it...some of you made some incredibly nasty looking stuff.
