    Default How to make pineapple beer?

    There are a lot of very different recipes online but I'm looking for personal recommendation - one that someone has actually made and it worked. Anyone?

    Cut 1 pineappel into cubess. (some use only the skin, i use everything)
    Add 4 cups of sugar, i use white suger,other prefer brown.
    5l of water.
    Lastly add 1 packet of yeast.
    Let stand for 20minutes then give a good stir.

    Keep it in a warm place for 1.5 days (not tightly coverd,i usually cover with a black bag.
    After 1.5 days i poor it through a cloth and put it in 2l plastic bottels. Then i keep the bottels out of the fridge for half a day to help build up some gas.(gas build up just about stops when its cold)
    Put in the fridge and enjoy when cold.

    My dad likes to add raisens, also nice with ginger beer.

    The longer you leave it without botteling, the stronger it gets.
    I have found how ever that when you pass 2 days the taste starts to change which i dont like.
    But at 3 days, it does become a tad potent.

    4ePajero had a recipe for ginger beer ages ago, and I try to make a few batches every summer, it is awesome! I used it to make pineapple beer a few times and that was just as lekker!

    My ouma se gemmerbier resep was net so, eenigste verskil, sy het geglo oor nag as jy hom in die emmer laat staan dat hy gis moet jy 'n sny bruin brood met styf geklitsde eier wit bo op laat dryf. Weet nie hoekom dit so moet wees, maar altyd as ons hom maak dan doen ons dit so.

    whoooo, me and swambo was just speaking of this over the weekend,
    I initialy made it with the intention that the kids would drink it instead of other cooldrinks over summer.. Man, that batch came out sooo strong, not sure if it was all in the mind but after 2 glases I had a little vibe, en swambo het ook sommer houding gehad.. so we did not give it to the kidss.
    Nice and refreshing,,

    *Note, that this is not a "flavoured/artificial beer" its made with pineapples, hence why I liked it

    During my time at Bording school the hostel matron would make a pineapple punch for the hostel matrics farewell dinner. The recipe would be grated pineapple,apples some sugar and a packet of yeast to get the fizz.

    Sooo ,one matric would chat to the matron whilst the other slipped past and into the cooler room to added extra yeast and sugar. It came out amongst ourselves that 90% of the matrics also added to the " punch". A week later it was served,what a farewell we had...the hostel had many headaches including the hostel masters.

    As my Ma pynappel gebruik het, is alles wat oorbly vir pynappelbier gebruik. Dit was nie regtig "bier" nie, want dit het net oornag gestaan om te gis. Sy het dit wel pynappelbier genoem.

    Skille (en alles wat oorbly wat nie geeet kan word nie) van een pynappel. Gooi dit in 'n beker (so 1 liter of 1.5 liter beker). Maak vol met louwarm water waarin daar bietjie suiker gegooi is. Proe maar self. Sprinkel so 1 telepel droe gis bo-oor en roer deur. Laat staan oornag. Syg dit deur 'n doek/lap en sit in yskas.

    Baie lekker. Ek maak dit nogsteeds so nou en dan.

    We made this in the hostel.

    But we had those jobbies that you count the air bubbles, per minute.

    Once you get to 1 bubble per minute, it is ready.

    The we stole a distiller from the science lab at school.

    Needless to say, that condensate was potent.

    Ok here's the research results.

    Made 3 batches over the last week, combining different recipes.
    Here's the best one in my opinion.

    2 whole pineapples including skins, chopped up quite small.
    5litres of water
    2 1/2 cup sugar
    1 1/2 teaspoon dry yeast (7 ml if u want to be exact)
    Handful of raisins

    Add chopped up pineapples to 5 litres warm water with the sugar and dry yeast and a handful of raisins.
    All in a bucket. Don't mix just put it all together with the yeast on top. Then let it stand for 30 mins, then stir well. Then cover it with a cloth and let it stand 4 days (or 3 if u prefer). Stir well once a day. Then strain it through a cloth into bottles. Or one big 5l bottle. Leave the bottles out of the fridge for a day to get fizzy. Open up now and then to let some gas out.
    Then into the fridge to chill, and that's it....

    It has a kick so keep it away from kids. Similar to your average beer.
    It's good ice cold with mint on top or a slice of lemon.

    Fermentation times:
    I found that after 3 days fermenting in the bucket the taste is slightly 'yeasty' similar to home made ginger beer, and it's more sweet. After 4 days fermenting it's less yeasty and less sweet, a bit more 'dry' and more alcoholic. Both were good.

    My bucket was at room temperature in the kitchen, I guess averaging 18 to 20 degrees. In hotter weather I'd reduce time by maybe a day.
    Also tried with one pineapple but I like the extra fruitiness of 2.

    Happy brewing..

    This one works really well! I made some but unfortunately the pineapples we got were not sweet, and were slightly sour, so that taste obviously translated to the pineapple beer now too. Only problem is there is a slight bitter after taste, need to try this again with decent pineapples.

    I left it standing for 4 days, and it still gassing up a storm though in the fridge.

    It is very gassy, and I suspect pretty strong in alcohol but I have no way of testing that. (Other than what I felt like after consuming some...)

    You need a lesson in buying the right pineapple.

    Wife knows now after visit to Hawaii.Trust me it work.

    All knobs must all be same size from top to bottom,all over, even if it looks green. Trust me it work. Somebody at shop asked her why she buys a green one....and it was sweet as hell.

    My experience : Don't let it ferment for too long. Overnight is enough for a good tasting pineapple drink. Nice bubbly with a semi sweet pineapple taste.

    Any thing longer and all the sugars convert to alcohol. It leaves a strong sour taste. Not pleasant to drink.

    Ek het beginne cane drink.

    Met Coke.

    Al wat ek oorhet.

    Eks besig om blind te raak, seriously seriously. En ek verlang na mense wat ek nog gaan ontmoet.

    Daars nog so kwart bottel oor, ek gaan dit klaarmaak, en dit as een van my dinge onthou wat ek uit Covid geleer het.

    As jy cane drink is jou volgende stap OF tik snuif met sulke uit tanne en geel toonnaels , OF 'n Tibetaanse Monnik , met so rooi kleed sonder 'n onnerbroek.
