We opened the bottle and drank it anyway, much to her dismay
I forget what she said if it was due to the grains themselves (like how they were grown) or some other factor. I can't recall, but maybe phil will chime in. Moral of the story, according to her is don't drink any beverage from Africa
. Although if you homebrew the stuff, more power to ya
I have read where it is the husks that do that to you, while the kernel is actually very healthy & full of vitamin B, of which I am deficient, so am trying to find out how to brew with it.
One can grind hulled millet & put it in water, where the husks can be skimmed off, I have read.
