Default WTF Did I Make?!

So I wasn't to certain on what category this would fall under considering it's not really a beer but uses the ingrediants, not a wine but isn't carbonated, and not a mead because there is no honey.

I'm sure this has been posted but searching returned no result so here it is.

1 pound Ale Grains
4 pounds sugar
1 package of brewers yeast
4 gallons of water


What the hell is it? Just thought of it on a whim but I have no idea how it will taste, I know it won't be all that strong unless I still it but dont have a still so that does me no good. What is it and how will it taste?

Any suggestions on bottling?

That almost looks like dorm hooch! Sorry, but why not try and find a brewing software and input your recipe so that you'll get an idea of what it is you're looking to make. Here's a supposedly free one. Try the link and see what you get.

I think I'd call it "cheap nasty hooch", or maybe "cheap nasty hooch with some grain in it" if you want to make it sound a little better...

I believe that would be termed "hooch".

Out of curiosity, can you describe your process (ie. what did you do with the ale grain)?

What are you trying to save? The hooch or the recipe? Try downloading the qbrew and see what you can come up with. If you are new to brewing then why not get a kit and try your hand at a tried and true recipe. Atleast you'll be making something that's gonna taste like beer.

Exact process:

Santized everything
put one pound of grains in muslin bag and crushed (6 row btw)
started yeast
mixed 4 pounds of granulated sugar with 4 gallons of water
added muslin bag
stirred to ensure that sugar was well dissolved
added yeast
currently fermenting

I got the idea from what would be a moonshine recipe but I changed it alittle.

Yeah I got the brew program and it's kind of confusing currently I will work with it and learn. I have a full kit but I'd like to experience more than beer so i figured I'd give low grade liquer a try so this was my first shot.
