Brewing beer in the boonies challenge..

26 posts in this topic

Thanks for the info so far..This thread will be famous some day..

 

The malting process since the pic taken yesterday has changed drastically..Roots are a little over 1/4 of an inch.. Ready for drying pretty soon.
I`d say at least 95% germination.

I have that book marked..Cheers.

They want nearly 4,000 Peso for 25 Kilo`s of their cheapest un milled malted grain.. I can make 25k myself for around 300.00 PHP..

Might order some yeast from them though.

They also have 20 varieties of hops.

 

I brought all my equipment with me from the US 5 years ago, but honestly I haven't done anything with it yet.

The building where you age your meat would probably be perfect for brewing too.

I wonder if Filipino`s use a more suitable dried yeast thats available here??

 

My father in-law doesn't use yeast at all when he ferments sugar cane wine, "it just ferments"... Just like Europeans in the old days, many older locals might not know there is yeast that is doing the job, the locals I know from my wife's province use wild yeasts (with the native wines) that develop on the their own. Taste might not be so great with beer, I doubt the Philippine wild yeasts would make it taste like Lambic.

Problem I have now is drying out the germinated grain before it starts to sprout...Hard to do when the sun aint shining..Another rainy/cloudy day and the first batch is pretty much useless..

Live n learn every day here..
