Introduction: Beetroot Beer
Everythig start when a friend of mine tell me about how Russians Made their sugar. they use Beetroot! so that means beetroot have sugar, then it can be used as source for fermentation.
This instructable will show you how to make your own Beetroot beer.
This one i made only for test, let see if it works
Step 1: Ingredients & Utensils
400ml (13.5Oz) of Water
10g (0.35Oz) of Yeast
500ml PET Bottle
Step 2: Let's Peel It
First Peel the Beetroot, it's not much Dificult, but a bit Frustrating if you don't know how (My Situation)
Step 3: Shred the Beetroot
Take your Shredder and... well... Shred the beetroot. i used only Half of the beetroot but, you may use a whole betroot if you want a stronger beetroot taste.
Step 4: Put It All Together
Now add all the ingredients on the Bottle
The beetroot the water and the yeast
Then Cap it and Shake it
Step 5: Let It Sit
Let it sit somewhere where it will not be disturbed. After one hour the foam will start to grow, thats a signal that the yeast is working.
