Brewing beer in the boonies challenge..

26 posts in this topic

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..

 

The high relative humidity doesn't help either... Can you use a IR-heater (might be next to impossible to find in the Philippines though) and a fan to speed up the drying process?

Not sure Richard..Might need to look for a dehumidifier or an oven with a very low heat setting..

Thats why I only bought 2 Kilos;;; Cheap learning curve!! 

One way or another though,we will get there...Thanks for suggestion.

I purchased infrared bulbs on ebay.ph for keeping chicks warm took about three weeks to get here from China.

Heat is what kept me from doing any serious brewing in the PH. I did make some ciders though with decent success. 

Advice depends on what sort of beer you want to make. Lager is going to be tough unless you will make a climate controlled room. You can do so with a nicely insulated room and a window rattler aircon with modifications (to the temp controls). Ales can be done. Mead is a good example of 100% local sourced product that can be made very nicely. 

Definitely use proper brewing yeast for the particular type of beer you want to make or you will be wasting your time.

Also, rather than a whole temperature controlled room, you can use an old refrigerator.
