I would just weigh them and assume something like 95% fermentables to make sure that you can use 1 corn, or maybe 1/2 corn per bottle.
If you do this, test it out in PET pop bottle that you get from the gas station.

If it bulges like a mofo, gushes or is flat you know what to do.

I think any light, overly sweet, low-hop brew will do. I'd boil it with late additions of honey and brown sugar. I wouldn't use too much actual candy corn because, I mean really, what's IN those things?!

Cool idea for a gimmik brew. I would brew a Belgian golden strong and use the candy corn in place of the standard candy sugar.

why the vegan candy corn?
brewing beer is yeast slavery!
KFC is chicken holocaust!
Meat is murder !
GO peta!

ok ok its out of my system,
i would do this two ways A. use CC as priming sugar tab
or B. (here is the winner) make a belgian strong ale and sub the candie sugar for candie corn sugar.
that would be great in the late oktober it will be nice an cool
look here for some ideas all these have candie sugar in them

You might try to double boil the candy corn see how well it breaks down.

Try a 1 gallon DME beer.

According to Brachs its made from honey.

Using it in a belgian strong would work, but using it to carb in a pumpkin ale would be more novel.


You could drop into glasses of cider too. Nice visual....

I'd be willing to bet that you get no flavor from the candy corn.

I'd agree. I believe the main sweetener is honey.

I brewed a halloween brown ale years back with Candy Corn and Count Chocula. The candy corn just ferments away, but all the orange dye did give the foam a slight orange hue to it. I used the mixed bag with the corns and pumpkins.
