Want to help me put together an experimental something? I have an extra bucket with a grommet for an airlock that can probably hold ~3.5-4 gallons with head space.
I just did my first brew (Apfelwein). I had about 2 cups of extra juice that didn't fit into the bucket, so I put it in a milk gallon, and pitched some of the Montrachet yeast (the rest in the main bucket). I am letting it grow over a day or two so that it can start a franken-wein/brew. But I need a recipe!
I also have an extra gallon of apple juice since it came in 2 packs from costco, as well as several quarts of youngberry, black currant, and blueberry juices. Additionally, I have about 1 lb of some extra LME laying around ("organic malt extract" in a tall cylindrical jar? no idea how this got in my pantry). If hops would be good, I have an extra 1/2 oz of centennial and 1/2 oz of cascade. Maybe throw some type of sugar into the mix? Inverted? Maple syrup? I might have some cracked wheat for baking in the pantry. I don't know how old it is though.
edit: I have winter wheat berries, rye berries, rolled oats, and wheat flakes at least a pound or two of each. Making the raw berries into malt could be a fun project.
Throw some recipes at me using (mostly) the above ingredients!
