Im glad you like it. I however will not be wasting fermenter space with the stuff. Although I imagine it is good in a couples days right?

I may be coming off as an ass, but I just dont believe this can be a good 'beer'. And I can also brew two cases worth of blonde ale or light wit for less than 10 bucks (I buy grain and hops in bulk, and reuse yeast) and it actually contains real malted grain and hops, you know, what goes in real beer.

I suggest you try to brew one of the starter kits from a LHBS, or one of the many great online vendors if you havent already. I promise it will come out alot better than that hooch you are currently making.

As i said. As a beginning brewer. Really good to get a handle on the process. Also with gelatin as a clarify agent its clear and given it needing next to no aging the bakers yeast doesnt develop skunky wild flavors. It has malt via the malted milk. And boiling the grains makes a fine wort. I did label this BUSH BEER its scrapped together but worth it. And as someone who uses food grade buckets and doesnt buy bulk this works well for what i am going for. I would honestly compare it to a blonde or wit.

Did the whole kit thing. Hated it. Had poor success. Tasted like piss beer/wine. Bottle with raisins or karo vanilla. Also id swear by it.

Posting to subscribe. I'd also like to see some pics of both the process and the finished beer. I don't think I'd brew this, but I am interested in hearing more about it, and if anyone else tries it. :mug:

You arent being an ass. You simple don't view bush beer as beer. And you arent alone. But for 8$ per 4 gal without buying in bulk its a great project for anyone looking for beer on the cheap that doesnt taste like busch bladderwash
