SWMBO has her friends up this weekend. One of her friends works at a place that makes pharmicutical grade sugars. They have old sugar that was being disposed of for whatever reason.

I got 50lbs of Corn Sugar!!!! 800 oz is enough for 160 5-gallon batches.

Sweet! That's enough for 25 batches of Apfelwein too!

Do they have any more?

Sweet is right!!! Good idea. SWMBO loves cider so the majority will go to making cider.

Her friend told me after 2 years of sitting on the shelf they dispose of the sugar.

She said they filled two dumpsters with corn sugar!!!

The stuff is packaged in two 25lb drums, inside each drum is two plastic bags with 12.5lbs each.

Two drums were rescued for my sake.

It would be nice if the pharmicutical biz used malt extract...

Yeah! Take all that sugar, boil it till dissolved, add in a can of budweiser for yeast and certified beer flavor, and then add in some of those chewy fruit candies to make it a lambic. Then throw in a little bit of brewer's yeast. Ferment it all in a 55 gallon drum out on your back porch when your parents are out of town....
