No, and unless you tell us, we may never know.

Kinda worried about you getting your hands on some of that yeast to make an 18% brew, you'll be in here asking how to ferment the lawn clippings!!!!!!

ROTFLMAO

you can use lawn clippings???jk:) i guess kilju (pronounced kill yu) is a finnish wine made with sugar yeast and water; thats all. i guess its like the finnish version of pruno or something and i heard that fellow from the netherlands talkin about it on here so i looked up the recipe and made a half gallon batch just to see what would happen. its like mead just sugar instead of honey, no flavorings. staight booze:d:d:d:d:d:d:d:d:d:d:d:d:d:d:d:d:d:d:d:d

half gallon yields a half gallon (minus a couple ml or so after filtering) anywhere from 8-16% ABV:dg it can have a number of different things added to it during fermentation as well to make a range of flavors. u can even distill it and make finnish (finland) moonshine but i kno thats :ot:

The guys in cell block 18 were making something like that. In fact I swear I seen a guy toss an old shoe in it and said it would "add caracter".

I always wondered if he ever made it back to Finland.

Ryan, look through some of the recipes in here. Theres Kvass, kamini, khomehini etc. some strange ones for sure. Some are "traditional". I don't remember offhand but theres some sort of Finnish brew in there.

You are starting to remind me of some of the people who live here who choose to live outside of civilization. Thats not a bad thing, most of my aquaintences DO!

But, take a look at some of these. Let me know what you think.

I think I already sent you this link, some strange ones in here.

If I could find a way to ferment mosquitoes, cat hair, spruce needles or snow I would be a rich man. It may be time to start considering the old shoe afterall!!:)

I saw in my Midwest Brewing magazine that there are many many flavors that can be added to this 'base'...Sounds like a new project!
