Ingredients for Fruit (berry) brew

Step by step instruction of cooking Fruit (berry) brew

Шаг 1

Bread rye-wheat or rye ( 300 g ) dried breadcrumbs until brown.

Шаг 2

100g crackers, dried or fresh raspberry leaves, mint put in 3-liter jar, pour boiling water about 3/4 of the banks ( not to the top ). Wrap it up the jar and leave for a day to cool. If we can put a new starter in the finished wort ( the second brew), the water will have less than half the banks

Шаг 3

Use the starter at its peak.
That is nourished and "grown" 2-3 times. My made according to the recipe Svetochka http://www.povarenok .ru/recipes/show/754 79/
Leaven mixed with malt in a separate container, dilute a little of the cooled infusion of crackers 100-200 ml, for solution. There also add honey, stir.

Шаг 4

Then pour into the jar with a grain infusion. Place the washed raisins. Also add: for raspberry kvass - a handful defrosted or fresh raspberries, Apple cider - well washed Apple and lemon, chopped in a meat grinder or food processor. Can lemon cut into small thin slices. If necessary, pour boiling water ( not above 30 degrees) without adding to the top of the banks 4-5 cm mix well, cover with marlechkoy and put to quasits at room temperature for 24-36 hours. When the brew starts to "play" pieces of bread and fruit, the berries will float up, will foam from the rising bubbles. The liquid will be cloudy. The finished product will reduce the fermentation, part of the pieces floating at the top, begin to descend, the liquid will become illuminated.

Шаг 5

Now the brew, strain. Cooked in a clean bottle add sugar to taste ( I do 1 tbsp of fructose to 1 l of brew), and then carefully, trying not to raise the sediment from the bottom, strain the drink through cheesecloth, squeezing the liquid from the pieces.

Шаг 6

The sediment remaining on the bottom, and is leavened sourdough or our kvass wort, which can be up to a week stored in a jar in the fridge, or right on it to cook the second Bay of the brew. The subsequent brew will be tastier. So, you can first make Apple kvas, then the remaining wort raspberry.

Шаг 7

To do this, repeat step 1 and step 2, then pour the resulting infusion of bread in the jar of kvass wort, add 1 tbsp honey, 1 tbsp dissolved in water of malt ( but not necessarily), depending on the kind of kvass add fruit or berries, raisins, pour boiling chilled water and prepare the brew as usual.
To serve such a beautiful brew can be as a refreshing drink, with straws, to decorate the young sprigs of mint, slices of lemon.
Bon appetit!
