So this is probably crazy but I was wondering what I can do with all this leftover halloween candy that I probably shouldn't eat and was wondering if I could melt a couple pounds down and ferment it with a brew? Has anyone ever heard of this? Are there any reasons you could think of that it wouldn't turn out good?
Most candy is just sucrose with some sort of spice/flavor. So I don't see anything too good that can come out of it. Unless you made like a peppermint stout, caramel amber or porter, or something like a babyruth, Hershey, etc. stout or porter....that might be cool.
I came across a guy who made an I-Peep-A, where he melted a load marshmallow peeps in his boil instead of sugar for an IPA. Something like that would offer essentially nothing other than fermetables and a ton of novelty.
