HOMEBREW RECIPE MYSTERY CHALLENGE – APRIL 2022
Challenge from Mike Buchart
My deceased grandmother Anna E. Petroff Buchart was one of those great ladies who understood cooking and published a few cookbooks of her own. Grandma B’s recipe for beer was as simple as it comes but too confusing for a novice like me. Then again, no one has yet offered recommendations how to brew this.
Unfortunately, she passed before I really knew good beer and could have asked about her recipe.
Anna Petroff Buchart’s beer recipe is:
1 quart malt
3 pounds sugar
1 cake powdered yeast
Raisins or potatoes
1) Add hot water to mix.
2) Pour into a vat and add lukewarm water to fill.
3) Add a handful of raisins or potatoes.
4) Cook 48 to 72 hours with light bulb (40 watt). No longer than 72 hours.
5) Siphon and bottle.
I ask if there is anyone out there that can suggest amounts that I can at least begin with please do so. It would sure save a lot of time, frustration and spoiled efforts.
Any thoughts can be directed here firstname.lastname@example.org many thanks!
