So I was wonderin' if there's anyone else like me that have beer recipes and experiments they keep under wraps?

So far I just have one recipe in the works and a test batch already brewed and mostly consumed. lol I did a little bit of rooting around and hadn't managed to find a beer of it's kind officially brewed. I've only made mention of it to friends and family.

Currently I'm conducting a bit of a kitchen science experiment to see if I can culture some hidden yeast for a special brew. In the mean time I've gotta track down a cheap lab that I can send a sample to if I manage to wake any up. lol

Anyone else a bit of a Mad Brewer?

If it is toasted pumpkin seeds, someone already did that.

I have a secret secret recipe that I will be working on. I saw a brief image of what looked like pumpkin cake with bananas on top. So I think that it might be good to try and make a Pumpkin Hefe with lots of banana flavor.

But don't tell anyone, I want to make a fortune with it!

That's exactly what I was thinking when I saw this

Well, ever since I started, I've been brewing with chick peas as 100% of the grain bill. I even malted, and toasted them. So far, they taste pretty bad.

Other than that, when I finally get the money to start brewing with the right ingredients, I'm planning to make a batch of mbege (African banana/millet beer), and maybe boza.

I think there is no harm in thinking (right or wrong) that you are venturing into new territory. Isn't that part of the fun? Keep it a secret or post it. Either way, as long as you are having fun...

I have an Ethiopian friend who's teaching me how to make T'ella... I can't find the purple huskless barley anywhere though (they call it black barley). Do people typically make mbege in small batches in soda bottles as well?
