I made this a few years ago when I was living with my non-drinking family. It was great, but I really don't think I paid much attention to sanitizing or being precise. I would love to make it again, but I think I need a better recipe than the one I had hunted up online, so if you find one, post about it
The second time I made it, it smelled like beer. And my family was appalled. I was thrilled, inside, but I was a little afraid to drink it, too, so I dumped most of it out
I used store bought rye that was very hearty (some kind of specialty bread, their "rustic" rye, or something) and I brewed it in a one-gallon container. But anyway! Love to hear what you find and how it turns out.
