Hey, has anyone ever actually made beer from Grape Nuts (or store brand equivalent)? How different would it be from using malted grains?

You just wouldn't be able to hear anybody talking while you're drinking it.

Be aware that a pound of Grape Nuts contains about 2300mg Na. If it was your primary fermentable, it could inhibit yeast growth.

that's pretty funny


It appears it's been done. Here's a little info on it from googling it. http://www.accidentalhedonist.com/in...&c=1&tb=1&pb=1

ah, very good point

might be suitable to find a low-sodium version or an organic no sodium one

i guess from a cost stand point it wouldn't make sense to use grape nuts, since they're very pricey, especially compared to grains from a brew store

experimenting with a small batch would be fun

haha - one of the comments:

Never really felt inspired to make that one. Who knows, maybe it would make a good breakfast beer? ;-}

There was a thread a long time ago about making beer only from grocery store ingredients...as I recall grape nuts were mentioned (along with couscous, wormwood, angostura bitters, beano tablets, corn husks, Whoppers...):

on my very first batch, my friend noted that the steeping grains smelled like grape nuts and we pondered if it could be done. thats about as far as the idea ever went for us.
