iKhaya Alcoholic Pineapple Beer Mix 4-pack (4x500gr)
iKhaya Alcoholic Pineapple Beer Mix 4-pack (4x500gr)
Art. nr. B25402
New!
Product Description
This pineapple beer comes in a powdered mix-and-ferment form that is super-easy to brew - just add water and let stand at room temperature! And, best of all, proudly made in South Africa. Enjoy it on its own, or mix with your favourite tropical flavours (Malibu comes to mind!) for a wonderful thirst quencher on a hot day.

Simply add the powder to 5 litres of luke-warm water and let stand for at least 48 hours, or until the pineapple beer has developed to your taste. Initially the ginger beer will still be fairly sweet and low in alcohol, but it will become drier (and more alcoholic!) as it stands longer. While this pineapple beer is excellent when enjoyed young, you can also let it ferment out completely and then bottle it along with carbonation drops and let it mature further until it becomes fizzy. (In that case you should treat your brewing equipment and bottles with a no-rinse sanitizer solution to prevent long-term spoilage.) Typical alcohol by volume: +/- 4.5% (if fermented out completely). Beware the kick! Makes 20 (4x5) litres.
