hey guys, i'm new here, but i've been brewing beer for about a year.
recently i got the idea to try making a brew from some of mom's unsweetened homemade applesauce. i thought i would start small and see what happens, so i washed the yeast from a recent batch of beer and pitched a bit into a pint of applesauce. after 36 hours it hadn't taken off yet, so i added clean boiled water to double the volume of the brew, pitched a little more yeast, and poured it into a quart mason jar with the lid screwed on just loose enough to vent.
when i brew beer, i'm at my friend's place where we have all the right equipment. at home i've got anti-alcohol parents who don't want to see it, so i'm brewing while they're out of town, which is why i'm using a mason jar with a loose lid instead of something with a proper airlock. its a delicate setup, this afternoon it had enough foam that it plugged up the ability to vent and cracked the jar, i heard it from the next room, so i had to pour into another jar and left the lid a bit looser.
anyway, its been actively fermenting for about 3 days now, and i'm looking forward to how it turns out. has anyone tried this before, and if yes, how did it turn out?
