Ah, yeah a hefeweizen could be the way to go....at whole foods they sell bulk wheat in those bins...easy to make beer from that, although you'd probably want some kind of filler material in there too just to keep it from turning into a giant sticky mesh when you mash it.

Aren't grits a sub for corn in brewing? Might be light, but judging by the size of the BMC companies, I'd guess light is not an unpopular product!

Coriander and grains of paradise are often used in beer for flavor/bitter, as well as orange zest.

Most of the grocery stores have a fair selection of different grains, almost ready to use, in the hot cereal section.

OK, you guys with the coriander et. al. - take a guess on amounts for a five gallon batch.

Suggest him a recipe?
I drink therefore I am.

I was reading through the OP, and thinking to myself "I swear I've seen this thread before... involves a bet, and only grocery store ingredients.".



Good luck to you, OP. Seems you're a little more familiar with the process if you've made proper wine.
