Notes

Name
===
During the October / Halloween brewing this past year, it occurred to me that you may very well be able to brew a beer that has the color and viscosity of human blood. This morbid idea got somewhat fixed in my mind. It would not necessarily taste great... To make something that both looks like blood and actually tastes good would be a further challenge. But I may learn some things along the way and it seems like a fun, if weird challenge.

I also love the idea of having a Vampire Party next Halloween and serving "Blood" at it.

Particularly the viscosity will be tricky to do while still having a drinkable beer. Also, the opaqueness. Yeah, it'd be a challenging thing to achieve all around.

The idea is to do 1 gallon brew in a bag batches and iterate on it.
