Can't deny that lagers may be our legacy, 1830's to present is still a small sliver of time but "craft" is less than a blink of an eye comparatively. Besides I like lagers, I have three in the pipeline.
Intresting to read. But collect spit. Mmm. Dont know.
OH GROSS!! sit around chew on some grain and spit it out in a bucket... No flipping way... aint gonna happen... Shall we flavor this one with some snoose juice? I'm very content with what I brew in todays world... Sneezles61
Had an opportunity to drink chicha in Ecuador a few years ago. I'm gonna pass on that every time.
I remember Dogfish Brewing had their tv show many years ago and did a batch of Chicha. They had all their employees chew the grain. I’ve never tasted the style so I can’t comment. But it’s pre-boil so it will end up being sanitary.
I guess it would work until you could afford a grain mill
No Way! Of course, my Mother chewed food and spit into my mouth when I was an infant... Thousands of centuries ago...Sneezles61
