UPDATED INSTRUCTIONS! Make Pineapple Beer
This is my first instructable, and I really hope u like it!
This is an Instructable on how to make Tepache, a Mexican drink made of Pineapples ( PINEAPPLE BEER!! ) Its fairly easy to make and it tastes awesome!
I'm not sure on Alcoholic Potency... I added way too much sugar to mine and left it for 10 days and it got pretty strong.
Step 1: Ingredients Needed:
You are going to need the Following:
Sugar (Preferably brown works best, and makes it sweeter and gives it color)
Yeast - This is optional, pineapples contain their own yeast in their skin (rind).
- Not much eh? Easy stuff this.
Step 2: Tools / Other Stuff Needed:
To make my Pineapple Beer, I used an empty cooler box and sealed it around the edges of the lid with duct tape and tied it down with 'tie down straps'.
AND a 5 Liter Water bottle with a seal-able lid (OR any other container that can be sealed)
This will be used to Further Ferment it later (important - this carbonates it and makes that beer foam we all love)
Step 3: Preparing the Pineapples / Ingredients
Important: if you are not adding your own yeast, you will need to leave the skin of the pineapple on when you cut it up!
So now you will have to take your pineapples, and cut them into decently sized chunks/cubes, preferably at least an inch across.
Other Ingredients (other than pineapples): You will need plenty of sugar (Generally, the more sugar there is, the more can be converted into alcohol, and the stronger your beer will be. BUT be careful! Too much sugar calls for far too sweet Pineapple Beer!)
Cinnamon: For flavor, not too much either.
Water: Just enough water to cover the pineapples in the cooler-box.
