I live in a country where alcohol is banned and of course all equipments and materials related to brewing are banned as well, I tried turning non alcoholic beer into beer a couple of times but the results weren't so great, so I'm trying another method now, but I feel I'm doing something wrong, here are the ingredients I'm using:
- 3x370g malt extract (bought from health food store, the brand name is Meridian)
- 2x500g dextrose
- 50g hops
- baking yeast
I boiled 1 gallon of water then added malt extract and dextrose when they dissolved, I added the hops and boiled for 60 minutes poured the wort into a 5 gallon carboy and filled with water, activated the yeast in 12oz of water and 50g of table sugar then added to the wort, affixed the airlock.
It has been 4 days now, the fermentation process seems to be going fine, but I didn't get the nasty foam I usually get when I turn non alcoholic beer into regular beer, the color is dark brown and VERY cloudy. I don't know if I did something wrong, and I'm afraid to wait for few weeks then get an undrinkable "beer", please let me know if there's anything wrong with my method.
