Have some old liquid wheat malt extract...potential braggot?

Post by twistandstout » 2 years ago

I have some liquid wheat malt extract (Briess) that I used around a year and a half ago to make a black IPA, I believe it was. The rest of it has been sitting in my fridge ever since.

I was thinking of mixing that in with honey and water and letting it ferment. Maybe something like 60/40 ratio of honey to malt or even 70/30 depending on how much malt is left.

How do you think this would turn out? I could always dry hop it with some leftover centennial or citra or something and then carbonate it for the summer. But I've never heard of anyone using 100% pure Bavarian wheat malt and honey before.

It's all about experimenting, right?
