Default Brother in law had a crazy idea

Anybody here try making a beer that tastes like Coca-Cola? Is something like that even possible?

It is possible Try this link http://newsfeed.time.com/2011/02/15/...la-discovered/


However the oil's will most likely not do so hot in beer, and would boil off unless added like aroma hops.

There is no clear cut on whether it would come out of solution or not.

The obvious question is why would you want do that?

Brothers in law with dumb ideas don't need encouragement or they will be expecting you to go along with all of their moronic plans. Save yourself the headache, before you end up with the entire free world laughing at you when his video of you water skiing on a couch goes viral.

Ask me how I know this

Ask me how I know this
I must have some pretty mellow in-laws, but ok, I'll bite. How do you know this Paul?


On the encouragement side, may I point you in this direction?

That is a pretty decent cola syrup recipe, I would guess throwing some of those things into your brew ingredients along with a heavier dose than normal of the right caramel malt may get you close to what you're looking for.

Personally, if you're going to brew beer, brew beer. If you're going to brew cola, brew cola. It may not be a good idea to mix the two. Remember the short lived show "Cosby" (not to be confused with "The Cosby Show")? I remember a scene where his wife says "Why did you buy pickled eggs?" and he says, "I like pickles, and I like eggs, it seemed like a good idea at the time."

Yeah, something like that.

Many a good man has gone astray by a seemingly harmless brother in law.

Youtube link???

My answer to that would be "why?" If I want a coke I'll drink a Coke, if I want to get drunk on Coke I'll put some bourbon/rum/vodka in it.
And the funny thing about the whole Coke secret recipe discovered is that if you made it it would not taste like Coke as we know it

Ferment the coke... kill it. Add sugar back in. Pressurize in a keg. Might work?

Fermenting coke has been done and by all reports it does not taste good. One theory was that without all the sugar, the phosphoric acid and other ingredients end up tasting harsh.
