I can't help to wonder if this was an April Fools post delivered ten days late? There are many other options that could have been used for ingredients. Why not use some oatmeal or corn flakes to represent traditional beer ingredients? They may even increase the body. I would have increased the molasses content and reduced the maple syrup.

This is just the type of nutty experiment for me to do while SWMBO is out of town. I'm gonna get right on it, after I take a nap.

There's no part of that that even resembles an ale. More like prison hooch, if prisoners had access to better ingredients.

Default Bizarro Brew

Yeah, it's more like that science experiment you wish you had done as freshman chemistry project. I'm callin' it Bizarro Brew and I've taken up the torch.

Here's what I'm working with for a 2 quart batch.

6 oz. Publicx Almond & Oat Cereal (I steeped this for an hour at 150.)
Add --
1.4 oz Wildflower Honey (This is from a farm not a store.)
1.6 oz chocolate chip cookie (1 cookie)
Bring to boil, add -- 4 grams Willamette
Boil 40 mins, add -- < .5 tsp Irish Moss for last 20 mins of boil.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

I can tell I really didn't have enough fermentable material from the cereal for this amount of water. Perhaps the honey will add to this and the cookie was just a bizarro addition. Now it's all green with the hops addition. I based the measurement on a 1 gallon recipe. They call for two 7 gram additions. I may have a cereal based IPA brewin' here?

Sure, I used more traditional beer ingredients, hops, Irish moss, and I will use a yeast washed from a Blonde Ale. It's a fun little experiment between the real brew days. It smells like cinnamon, from the cereal, and Willamette.

As always, I will keep you guys posted.

Now I see why the OP never returned to comment, hooch is right! My og was 1.010 and I thought, what the heck, it might ferment out. And, it did, down to 1.001. It is very watery and sour with little hops flavor.

Since the first batch was unlikely to produce anything ale-like, I made a second batch the next day using 14 oz. of the same Almond & Oats cereal. (That's the whole box.) The OG was 1.030 and also fermented to 1.005.

These are both still in the 1/2 gallon containers in which they fermented. I intend to combine them in a 1 gallon container tomorrow. I'm not sure where this hooch is going, past a secondary/fining vessel. I'll be sure to post weather it is palatable at all.

If I ever do something like this again it will involve, at least, specialty malts and rice hulls.
