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.
<p>Probably you made one mistake about beetroot. Most common sugar in Poland is made from beetroot too, I think that is a same technology as in Russia. Root that you used is called &quot;red burak&quot;, sugar is made from &quot;sugar burak&quot;. Google translator translates &quot;sugar burak&quot; to &quot;white beet&quot;. It look like this: https://www.google.pl/search?espv=2&amp;biw=1600&amp;bih=1031&amp;tbm=isch&amp;sa=1&amp;q=burak+cukrowy+&amp;oq=burak+cukrowy+&amp;gs_l=img.3..0l8j0i30l2.4027.4137.0.4324.</p>
<p>I made this beetroot beer and can confirm that it did not taste that good, although you could drink it if you were desperate! I even tried various permutations of hops and ginger. In the end, I wacked it through my Smartstill and this produced a really lovely spirit: </p><p><a href="http://www.instructables.com/id/Elixir-Vulgaris-and-BLOOD/" rel="nofollow">http://www.instructables.com/id/Elixir-Vulgaris-and-BLOOD/</a></p>
<p>Hey, i'm very satisfied that my instructable inspired a better one. Gonna try yours when money starts to flow.</p>
<p>I'm going to have a go and this but use loads of ginger and hops - will report back soon.</p>
Have you checked this link about making a beet beer? <br>http://www.thelocalbeet.com/2009/08/10/2610/
Thanks, this one was just a experiment to find out if it's possible to ferment plain beet and water. I'll be taking a look at this link.
My grandparents used to make beet wine. When they moved closer to town 10 years ago and we were remodeling their farmhouse we found a bottle of beet wine from 1975! I didn't have any, but they drank the whole bottle. It's something I've wanted to make. My grandma is gone now so hopefully I can find her recipe.
Thnaks for the coment, see my blood wine too, it's beet wine with something extra, ow and i need to update that 'ible too
Oh, and don't forget to boil it before putting in the east!
Why Boil? it doesn't have Malt or other ingredients for beer, just beetroot and water.
Xmm, did you sanitize before proceeding and did you use a bubbler? maybe thats why it smelled so bad ;)<br><br>You should give it another go :) and if you do, try adding a little sugar. Lets say a spoon or so and a little less yeast ... that should do the trick! :P
I made onion-beer once: It stank, but didn't taste much. Please let me know how this turns out for you.<br /> <br /> L<br />
Make sure you post pictures after this thing explodes. &nbsp;Seriously, I highly suggest you keep a close eye on that. &nbsp;There needs to be a way for the carbon dioxide to escape without letting air back in. &nbsp;Essentially what you made there is a time bomb. &nbsp;I speak from personal experience. &nbsp;I've been home brewing my own beer for about 10 years, and I've seen glass bottles make quite a big hole in the wall due to trapped C02.
I'm keeping an eye out for this one, even that PET bottles can hold about 100PSI. After One day passed the bottle gets&nbsp;more solid, but i think it will not explode for now. If it's starts to get bigger then i will be sure it will blow&nbsp;a hole on the ground.
Er, the root vegetable used in the processing of sugar is <em>sugarbeet</em>.<br /> <br /> Still, there should be sugars available for fermentation, although I predict vileness in the outcome...<br /> <br /> <br />
Definitely an acquired taste to be expected.<br />
