Default I am currently fermenting Ovaltine.

I took a full jar of ovaltine (The main ingredient is Malted Barley).

I added it to about 2 gallons of water and boiled it for an hour with 0.4oz of US Goldings at 60mins.

I have about 1.5 gallons now of 1.030 wort with pretty good krauzen fermenting with a leftover pack of Coopers yeast from a kit that I fermented with a slurry from another batch.

Its very dark, chocolate milk kinda looking.

I hope you read the label first. The main ingredients in todays Ovaltine are alkalized cocoa and sugar. Blech!

Oh I read the label. Its in the video.

Don't worry, this isn't a serious brew. The main ingredient is the malted barley. Yeah, its going to be bad.

I think there are way to many people who take brewing way to seriously.

I'm having fun. That's what counts.

Interesting!

Every time I see Ovaltine I read it in Frau Blucher's voice.
