Why did you boil the barley?? You're doing it wrong.

And, half a gallon? Why bother.

Anyway, my guess is about a teaspoon of AE, hold at 150 degrees for an hour, then boil again. Cool, then pitch yeast. I have no idea what you'll end up with though.

Sorry bud, but you're on the wrong forum for this type of question. This forum is for people who find enjoyment in brewing BEER, with most of us having the goal of creating the best beer possible, not just a liquid that will get us drunk. You might want to look for a different forum that deals with the type of fermented beverage you're looking to create.

My advice would be to buy How To Brew by John Palmer or The Joy of Homebrewing by Charlie Papazian. Read the beginners section.

You are either not making beer or you have an odd set of ideas on how to make it.

I'm not sure what you think you are making, but I don't think it will taste good.

How much amylase enzyme should I add to about a half gallon of barley water? What temperature should it be at? How long should I keep it at that temperature before letting it cool to room temperature so I can add the yeast?

I'd appreciate your help.
Wine yeast CANNOT convert maltose and maltotriose.....your fermentation is not going to get very far.

It sounds to me like someone bought a still from Corrados.

Huh? Which wine yeast can't? I understand that Saccharomyces bayanus has some trouble with it but a lot of wine yeast is Saccharomyces cerevisiae just like brewer's yeast.
