Eat Like a Martian -Banana #Beer in #Space #Mars ?

bananas in treeIn my new #scifi #book Born on Mars, a visitor from the European colony tastes banana beer in the Sino-African colony. Not a big part of the story – just a little fun on Mars.

Try it yourself at home:
You’ll need ripe bananas, some wads of grass, water, and Saccharomyces cerevisiae (which is also used for grape wine) or the microbe of your choice. Use cloth to filter the final product. On Earth you can add sorghum flour to improve the taste.

Clean your equipment with boiling water, and be sure to wash yourself, too.

Peel ripe bananas by hand. Use only bananas ripe enough to be peeled by BORN Ebook cover 300 dpihand

Extract Juice. Knead the bananas in the grass until clear juice is extracted. The residue will remain in the grass. Recycle that in your garden – settlers need every scrap of organic material available.

Mix 1 cup of water to 3 cups banana juice.

Mix sorghum flour if you have it, to taste. Start with 1 cup flour to 12 cups banana mix. Stir well.

Ferment in a covered container for 18 -24 hours.

Filter. Force the liquid through a cotton cloth bag with your hands.

Enjoy. The beer should be refrigerated and drunk with a few days.Ya gotta survive, but, hey – ya gotta live, too.
