    I have a marine reef tank... I like testing/tweaking things.
    I'm not failiar with kefir grains, as to what alcohol content they can cause.... I have brewed my own beer and wine, and know that some strains of yeast will let you get a higher alcohol content. Ale yeasts are usually killed off at anything above 6 to 8%. You would use a wine or champaign yeast to get in to the 14-16% range.... I think anything above 20ish% requires distilation...

    • I made some fairly pokey ginger beer with just baker's yeast - fluke or was it simply the ginger giving it an extra punch?
      I like badgers, books and booze, more or less in that order.

        no you can use bread yeast to make beer with, but it reportedly gives the beer a "bread" flavor.... and ginger has a big zip to it on it own which ay cover over any breadyness of the brew from the yeast

        • If I'm not totally mistaken using bread/bakers yeast is similar to wine yeast... like in the 12% range of alcohol possibility.

          That's why it's so commonly used for "hooch".

            Woot! That explains a fair amount...

              Sparkling Cider and Hard Cider with Water Kefir Grains - Pickle Me Too

              It doesn't mention anywhere how high the alcohol can go, so I'm thinking not too high.
              But I like that it can go hard and make fizz.

                Now, I'm not so much of a bitter or stout girl, in all meanings of those fine words, but once upon a time, when I was a stout and bitter downer, I was quite partial to black velvet.

                These days husband and I share an appreciation of French red wines, but only he has a passion for black velvet...
                We still are, I hopes (apart from the Boddies), going by your journal I can subjagate meself, if you like?!

                People round here put cider in and call it a black velvet, which works, a snakebite though, is dangerous!!

                            • I'm a personal fan of the Black Velvet... Guinness and Cider.

                              I once was completely wasted and husband asked me how many I'd had.
                              "Only 6" I replied with conviction...

                              My Black velvet mug is big enough to hold a full measure of each brew!
