After we discussed this yesterday I was all set to pick up a $7.00 Farmland lager mixer & 2 litres of Coke (only 88c each!) and whack it on last night.
HOWEVER when I got to the brewery I found 14 litres of apple juice & a tin of Munton's Golden Saaz Pilsener waiting.
So- we bottled Black Rock cider, put on Munton's Pilsener, mixed 7 litres of the juice into a plain cider, then added cloves, cinnamon nutmeg & honey to the rest for a spiced cider to drink warmed in winter.
Drank a few then mopped the floor and went home.
Currently running 6 kegs, ran out of airlocks last night...may not be able to put the Coke monster on for a week or two.
Has anyone thought that this is another caffeine beer? It was my first thought.
I might have a go at it using my dedicated ginger beer fermenter - coz it's no use for anything else any more. Everything that comes out of it tastes of ginger.
I'm thinking that it might be OK with a Coopers Dark Ale can and 500g DME and Wyeast London Ale.
OK it's settled.
The Duke will knock up a batch of "Poor Man's Porter" using a Coopers Nut Brown ale & 2 litres of Coca-Cola.
I will put on "Coke Fiend" using a lager (Tooheys or Farmland) & 2 litres of Coca-Cola as soon as I have some keg space.
No Diet Coke, no Pepsi, and definitely no Fanta allowed. I don't plan to add any other fermentables.
We will report back in due course...may have to arrange some sort of tasting meet.
