i had a can of coopers draught hme just sitting here. i desided i was going to play some with it because i wasn't going to use it anytime soon anyway.

so here we go with what i desided to try!! i had 4 pounds of extra light dme sitting on the shelf and two pounds of corn sugar. i started the water boiling and added the dme and corn sugar while the can of hme was sitting in a sink full of hot water.

i have alot of leaf and pellet hops on the brewing shelf as well so i desided to play some more. after i added the hme to the pot of boiling dme and corn sugar i added a oz of amarillo pellet hops, a oz of german hallertau pellet hops and a packet of finishing hops from a homebrewery wheat beer kit that i hadn't used when i made the wheat beer(that is why i have so much hops on hand. i like to use my own hops in brews,not thiers). i boiled it for about a hour then i added another packet of the wheat finishing hops and another packet of amarillo hops when i took it off the stove. after cooling the wort i put a oz of amarillo leaf hops in a steeping bag and dropped it in the fermenter. then i added the wort after it cooled and pitched the yeast(just the coopers yeast because i didn't what to use any of the good yeast in this crazy adventure i am having here!!).

in about 2 monthes i'll try this crazy adventure out to see what it is like!!! maybe crap, maybe pretty good!! who knows. i just had this crazy ideal hit me and had to give it a try!!!!

@OP, sounds interesting. Did you take any gravity readings? If not not a big deal. I bet you end up with beer! Trying odd things can be fun!

@ everyone...

Cut the OP some slack about the ideal...

Eye halve a spelling cheek are
It came with my pea sea
It plainly marques four my revue
Miss steaks eye kin knot sea.

Eye strike a key and type a word
And weight four it two say
Weather eye am wrong oar write
It shows me strait a weigh.

As soon as a mist ache is maid
It nose bee fore two long
And eye can put the error rite
Its rare lea ever wrong.

Eye have run this poem threw it
I am shore your pleased two no
Its letter perfect awl the weigh
My cheek are tolled me sew.
“I'm not drunk, I'm from Wisconsin.”
We have been out drinking your state since 1848!
