“I found this recipe in an old cookbook of my grandmother's. I do not remember her making beer but was told that she did when she was younger. I have not made this as I am allergic to alcohol, but thought I would like to try it for a summer party make my own beer and invite friends over to taste. There is a web site where you can get the malt syrup and the equipment. There are different types of malts for the beer that you like.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Dissolve yeast in water and add sugar and malt syrup.
  2. Skim once or more if needed.
  3. Bottle in 72 hours.
  4. Go to your local drinking hole and have them save up dark bottles for you to pour your brew inches Sterilize bottles and lids in boiling water, screw tops work well for this.
  5. There is nothing about how many bottles this will fill, but I am sure at least 12 bottles are needed.
