Re: Tepache

Yesterday I made something influenced by tepache. It's an 11-litre batch. Based on the sugar content on the cans of pineapple juice, I expect it to be around 4% ABV. That was a while ago, so I thought I'd report back on it. The recipe is good but next time I'll make one tweak. I find it too sweet f...

Re: Cocktails

Lari, Your Liver must be taking a hammering with all these different drinks in your house! :D :D I'm a very good boy. I stick to one drink a day, or zero if I'm under the weather, and occasionally two for working-at-home Coronavirus stress. Scotch goes with the American cop show TV series Blue Bloo...

Cocktails

Mostly, I don't like 'em. When I drink whiskey, I usually mix it with water because otherwise it's too strong for me. About 75% water, 25% whiskey. With whiskey and water I can taste the whisky, with a much diminished burn. I've occasionally had rye and ginger ale, or Canadian whisky and ginger ale....

Re: Tepache

I've got two bottles left, one is 750 ml, and the other is 250 ml. Every day I've had it, it got drier and more carbonated. Also the flavours of cinnamon and cloves diminished. I'll make it stronger in every way next time, a non-traditional super-tepache. But first, there's some mead and beer to bot...

Re: Tepache

Have you done any experimentation that lead you to use brewing yeast? I haven't. When I went to the grocery, they were out of organic pineapple, so I just got a regular one. On the one hand, I imagine much of the yeast on the surface would have come from the grocery, not the field. On the other han...

Re: Tepache

How was the original batch, did you make any tasting notes? Yes. I apologize for not posting that. The granny batch is lightly carbonated. (The next one will be more carbonated because it will be more controlled, fermented out and primed.) Light flavour of pineapple. Actually, everyone except me sa...

Tepache

Tepache is a Mexican fermented beverage. It is low in alcohol, and the homemade versions are often still fermenting when drunk, hence slightly sweet. I call that the granny version. Tepache uses piloncillo as the main fermentable. That's an unrefined sugar also called panela or chancaca, depending o...

Re: Making kvass

Also the malt is sprayed with lactobacillus, it is as sour as German sour malt. It has a very deep black rye bread crust taste with some bitterness form the toast, it's ~180 EBC. Well, I get the lactobacillus sourness by leaving the toasted soaked rye bread overnight in water. For melanoidins, I to...
