Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Ingredients
1 Bottle (at least 1,5 litres )
2 Dl sugar
2 teaspoons yeast
1 litre water
Mix all ingredients into the bottle.
The water should not be warmer that +30 degrees because the yeast "dies"
Here's a picture of the indgredients (well you don't really need the mushroom, it only symbolises the yeast =D )
Step 2: The Processing
So basically it takes about 4-8 days to complete the process.
after the processing it should be 6-16 % ethanol.
when you close bottles cork, _DO_NOT_ screw it tighly because it needs to get some air, without it the whole thing is going to explode. There may be some steams comign from the bottle which may be stinky so place the bottle on a well ventilated place (outside if its summer)
if the cork is too tight, this happens =(
Step 3: Preparing the Drink
next, pour the mixture from the bottle through a Pantyhose (it seperates the yeast and other crap from the drinkable things)or let coffeemaker seperate it ( do not switch the coffee maker on!)
remeber to have a can,jug or whatever where you store the drink ;)
Kilju is drinkable for 2-7 days
Step 4: Ideas
Heres some tips when drinking kilju
Serve kilju as Cold as possible!
You can also mix some juices on it
Use your imagination ;)!
