Can you please add the actual measurements and full directions in the description or provide a link? I'd like to make this with a pineapple I have ripening on my counter at home!

When I've looked for some piloncillo, I think they came in two sizes. a small and a reg. larger one.

Tepache is amazing! So much good stuff happening in Mexico that most of us have no idea about... Never saw one with habaneros and ginger, sounds intriguing. I make a pretty pedestrian one I guess...piloncillo, cinnamon and a couple cloves. But a thousand times better than any commercial soda!

I think I’ll try it once the weather gets decent. Maybe use a little coconut and mint to change things up while keeping the pineapple base. Then serving it with an aged tequila and corona

Have you ever gotten food poisoning from food that you have made?

Brad needs to do some research on what "organic" means. It's more marketing than it is health.
Brumfield (12 days ago)
The natural yeast in the pineapple is in the skin, not lying around on the surface. Wash your produce, all of it. "Organic" is not contaminate free.

Can you make mead please? And could you serve it in a horn of some kind?

"a little woody" like in night at the museum
Christopher Arjon (14 days ago)
Its not tepache if you dont put in PILONSILLO. Pilonsillo gives it its flavor. Why do people always want to imitate some thing instead of doing it correctly. I bet it doesnt taste good.

Hey Brad (and comment section), I made tepache a couple weeks ago, but after the first fermentation it did not taste good, it actually tasted a bit bad. Either way I passed it through the second fermentation (to see la bubble). It still tasted bad so I had to discard it. What do you think what could have been the reason for that?
Daniel Ponce (18 days ago)
When the tepache is slimy is that a good thing or bad enough that should be thrown in the garbage. Hopefully you guys answer soon

Beautiful New Morning (26 days ago)
Can I make this without the chili and ginger? Just the pineapple and brown sugar? I don't like hot nor ginger root. Though I will wash the pineapple off, just my thought with where and what unknown has touched that pineapple... ; )
Ji Akira (28 days ago)
we use the skin of the pineapple not the chunks itself
He's on the wrong side of the kitchen...I'm triggered

The moment you stalk Brad's Insta because you find him very attractive... only to find out he's married.. with babies.

I like how due to the size of my phone screen the title showed up on my home screen as "Brad makes fermented ..." 😂😂

ricageo (1 month ago)
I have a question, why does Brad like fermenting things so much..😂?
ashtweth (1 month ago)
add in also or replace the ginger with TURMERIC...fermented turmeric is one way to absorb it, your actually onto some thing here, if you make this drink that way and drink it before or with beer you will help protect your liver
Debbie Peña (1 month ago)
In other recipes they put cloves and no habanero, the piloncilllo is for sweetness and you can add agave and agave liquor for more sweet and alcohol level 😊 it depends of the region that you take the recipe from.....

Mine smelled like a fart after 2 and a half days. Basically as soon as carbonation started, so did rotten fart smell. What the hell?

Nice job!!! My mom makes pineapple vinegar too, at one point before becomes a vinegar it can taste and bubbly like a Kambucha.

Huggy Bear (1 month ago)
Sorry Brad, but you should've peeled the ginger. Unless you're certain root vegetables, tubers, etc haven't been sprayed, it's likely they have growth inhibiting hormones on them. GIHs cause low motility and low sperm count, as well as prostate problems in men... Enjoy your pineapple beer!

I would not say pineapples are particularly sweet though You have to be really lucky

Vinnie needs a face reveal
Samuel Nilsson (1 month ago)
I've tried making a batch just now and the fermentation has gone smoothly. I haven't dared to taste it yet cause it smells an awful lot like horribly overripe pineapple. It's understandable if it's supposed to be like this but I still feel a little uneasy about it. Is this smell normal? Can I add something like lemon to make sure I don't get botulism?
magnus mcdoogle (1 month ago)
So is the pineapple acidic enough to keep botulism from growing?

How alcoholic is this drink
Ryan Madrid (1 month ago)
This stands in contrast to other fermentation videos that use a towel to cover the 1st fermentation, instead of a solid seal (this video). I wonder what the differences would have been.
CoolAlien 47 (1 month ago)
I don't know how this isn't more popular. The drink and the show, especially the drink, sounds and looks so good.

What the frick is the point of putting the rubber band if you are just gonna seal the jar

This guy is so damn entertaining. He has me cracking up..and learning. Schools could use teachers like him.
Shannon Sharp-Dillman (1 month ago)
Not only is Brad entertaining, but he also answered the question I came to youtube for.
Bryant E. Alberto (1 month ago)
There's another version of this that my grampa used to make. Instead of the whole pineapple you only use the skin of the pin apple. If you want it fermented let it rest at room temp if you want it non fermented then let it rest in the fridge. 24-48 hrs add sugar and it takes even better than pineapple juice.
Sean Ng (1 month ago)
Lol ...the way you talk is just sooo random and natural... Subscribed your channel already.

xxxkahunaxxx (2 months ago)
is the water there chlorinated? Doesnt chlorinated water inhibit or kill the beneficial bacteria that does the fermenting? also...how big is that jug? 1 gallon?
Robert Gardner (2 months ago)
Great video! Thanks for sharing. I would probably use purified water rather than tap.

Those last 5 seconds killed me, Vinny. They really did.
