Granulate it into flour, mix with warm water, add sugar and yeast. In percentage terms it looks like this: 70% water, 30% flour, 20% of the flour weight of sugar, 5% yeast. Insist Braga within 14 days. Mash is considered ripe when it has finished the fermentation process and it will become transparent. To determine the readiness using a match – move a burning match to the liquid, if it is not extinguished, so it is possible to distill the moonshine.

It is possible to prepare Braga of wheat under the simplified recipe. Rinse full varietal product, pour into the jar (38 liters), cover with water slightly above the level of grain and leave for a day to dry, then add capacity of 1.5 kg of sugar and place it in a warm place for a week, will ferment with wild yeast". After seven days in the jar it is necessary to add the must with sugar and water according to the level of the shoulders, not more. From the full jar during the fermentation liquid to "climb" across the top. For every 3.5 litres of water taken 1 kg of sugar. Close the container tightly and leave in the warm to ferment. The period of fermentation depends on the room temperature, 10-14 days would suffice to Braga was ready. Bard in the fermented sweetness is not felt, it has a bitter taste and peculiar smell.

Advice 3: How to make Mead out of a jam

Braga is the oldest alcoholic drink, which in Ancient Rus they were made of birch or maple juice. This intoxicating drink is still doing in the home of various raw materials, usually as a basis for distilling moonshine. The net drink kept long – drink immediately after fermentation. Try to make Mead out of a jam is a good way to recycle the surplus of your stocks.
How to make Mead out of a jam
You will need
    • Clean water
    • Jam
    • Sugar
    • Raisins and fruits
    • Capacity to prepare the wort and yeast
    • Yeast wine 3%
    • The fermentation capacity of the water-gate, glove
    • cord and needle)
    • Thermometer
    • A wooden paddle (stick)
    • Small ladle or a rubber hose
    • Bag
    • sewn from a piece of white flannel (fine sieve)
Prepare thoroughly cleaned large container – jar for milk or glass wine bottle. If you want to make Mead out of a jam in a small amount, enough three-liter jars. When using a vessel of glass, also take an enamel pan or pot for heating water.
Put in a vessel of fermented sugar or jam and fill it with cold water. You need to add sugar to taste at the future of the brew was sweet, but not cloying. According to classic recipes, 40 liters of water would need 10 liters of jam and sugar. In sweet wort you can also add raisins or softened to a pulp of sweet fruits and berries.
Place the container on a medium heat and, stirring, heat the mixture. Turn off the heat and let the liquid cool to room temperature. Meanwhile, prepare the leaven.
Pinch of fresh wine yeast (not frozen!) in warm water, until the mixture becomes homogeneous. Add yeast to the wort and mix everything carefully.
Place the future home of jam in the fermentation capacity and install a water seal (or rubber glove). If you are using a glove, a part of carbonic gas will bleed through the dressing, but to prevent "explosion" follow on two fingers the holes with a needle.
Put a container of brew out of a jam in a warm place, eliminating sharp fluctuations in temperature (as drafts and heat). Sometimes to speed up the process of preparation of alcoholic beverage fermentation capacity put in protoplennoy bathhouse or to the battery. Home winemakers believe that too high a temperature ruins the flavor of the mash.
According to estimates, a kilogram of sugar produced about 500 g of alcohol. In this case the yeast die when the alcohol concentration in the liquid reaches 15-16 revs. It is recommended to make pruno out of the jam with a sugar content of 25-30%. With less sugar, the wort will ferment poorly and do raw sugary pointless – all the sugar will not participate in the process. Future mash before fermentation must remind the taste of very sweet tea.
Useful advice
Water seal is a rubber hose, one end of which passes through a sealed tube into the fermentation tank, and the other descends into the bottle with water (it should be below the fermenting wort). Through the hose in the water facing the excess carbon dioxide.
