Candy and beer—a winning combination for some, and thanks to Brew Your Own magazine, we can all enjoy home-brewed Jolly Rancher Beer.

I’ve never brewed beer before. In fact, despite living in the south for the greater part of my life, I’ve never even made moonshine. If I ever do make a foray into home brewing, I might give this recipe a try. Anything that calls for four pounds of Jolly Rancher candy sounds fun.

Here’s the ingredient list:

  • 5 lbs 2-row pale malt
  • 3 lbs wheat malt
  • 4.0 lbs Jolly Rancher Apple hard candies
  • 3 AAU Saaz hops (aged) (60 mins)
  • (3.0 oz./85 g of 1% alpha acids)
  • 1/4 tsp yeast nutrients
  • Wyeast 3278 (Lambic Blend) yeast and bacteria
  • 1.25 cups corn sugar (for priming)

Details and step-by-step directions can be found at the Brew Your Own site. The process sounds a little too complicated for me, but if you’re a home brewer who loves candy, this recipe might be just what you need. If anyone makes it or has made this before, let us know what it tastes like!
