I have some leftover ingredients that are just going to go bad as I won't be making any brew for awhile.
What I have:
- ~1 lb Carafa III crushed malted barley
- Several Packets of Dry Champagne Yeast
- 1/2 ounce aroma Hops (pellets @ 3.8%)
I'd like to mix these up and ferment something, really, just for an experiment. I have 1 gallon glass fermenters, so I can easily make a small batch.
Will this work, any tips on how I should do it, or should I just throw the ingredients away because it won't be worth it?
Thanks in advance!
UPDATE: I used the ingredients along with Honey to produce a beverage similar to Braggot. Ultimately, the beverage turned out awful on top and beautiful underneath. Because I only brewed a gallon, and used the entire pound of Carafa, the drink was much too harsh, as it was overpowered by the burnt, dark malt flavors. Underneath, however, was a smooth and light beverage. Had I used only a few ounces of the malt, this drink would have been a delight. Lessons learned.
