I think it runs counter to homebrewing in general to make something from scratch that you "tolerate" because it's cheap. If it's bad, it's bad - I don't care if you got it for free. You can ferment just about anything, potato peelings, old fruit, hell, you can leave orange juice in the refrigerator for a month or two and get alcohol, but there's a reason it's not very popular - it tastes like ass.

If cheap is the goal, there are ways to get grain cheaper. Our club does bulk grain buys about twice a year from North Country Malt. Our last order was just a shade over 1700 lbs. The cost, including shipping, was about 50 cents a pound.

Default Hey Dennis C. !!!

Thanks,

All of ya'll have given me ideas,
but as I sit here waking up from bottleing last night,
your idea of 'bulk purchasing' is really exciting.
I used to pay $2.25 a pound for syrup,
till I saw a 33lb container of pale syrup for $2.00 lb.

.50 a pound syrup is what is really getting my mind going this morning.
{Hmmm...}

My question about 'feed' was hypothetical anyway,

A big bulk purchase is the way to get ones ale cheaper.

I'l talk to Kelly and Gary at the 'store' and see what I can come up with.


Thanks J. Knife

A sterile mouse turd probably still tastes like a mouse turd, wouldn't you think?

Default Hey Pistolero...

Yup I recon it would,
but think...
In Deer season, 50 LB sacks of corn are $4.00
And their ain't no mouse turds in it,
or I didn't see any in my sacks last year.
And I would pick out the mouse turds anyway,
and one can always wash the 'stuff '.

However my question about 'feed' was hypothetical anyway,

Yesterday I went to the homebrew headquarters,
and asked old Gary about cheaper buys...
I can get a 300 LB barrel of pale syrup for about a dollar a pound!
Thats less than half of what I have been spending.

300 LB of syrup will brew 2,000 beers
That in turn would last me well over six months.
{Like seven}

I sure enjoy this forum, as it helps me in so many ways.
Like old Dan the master bladesmith,
I can learn more talking to him for 15 minutes...
than I can hammering on hot steel in my knife shop,
for a year.


Welp...
Coffee is all drank up...
Time for a homebrew

Later Yawl
