Recipe. | Vegan Carrot Beer

Published by Leonardo Calcagno


  • 2 lbs (about 900g) carrots, peeled and chopped
  • 6 cups (1.5 liters) water
  • 1 lb (about 450g) malted barley (choose a variety suitable for brewing)
  • 1 oz (28g) hops (choose a variety with floral or citrus notes)
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1 vanilla bean, split lengthwise
  • 1 cup (200g) brown sugar
  • 1 packet of beer yeast (choose a vegan-friendly strain)


  1. Preparing the Carrot Juice:
    • In a large pot, combine the chopped carrots and water.
    • Bring the mixture to a boil over medium-high heat, then reduce the heat to low and let it simmer for about 30 minutes or until the carrots are soft.
    • Remove the pot from the heat and let the mixture cool slightly.
    • Once cooled, strain the carrot mixture through a fine mesh sieve or cheesecloth to extract the carrot juice. Discard the solids and set aside the carrot juice.
  2. Brewing the Beer:
    • In a separate large pot, bring about 4 cups of water to a boil.
    • Add the malted barley to the boiling water and let it steep for about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
    • After 30 minutes, strain the barley water into a clean container, discarding the spent grains.
    • Return the strained barley water to the pot and bring it back to a boil.
    • Once boiling, add the hops, cinnamon stick, and split vanilla bean to the pot.
    • Boil the mixture for another 30 minutes, then remove the pot from the heat.
    • Stir in the brown sugar until dissolved, then let the mixture cool to room temperature.
  3. Fermentation:
    • Transfer the cooled barley-hops mixture (wort) to a sanitized fermentation vessel.
    • Add the strained carrot juice to the vessel and mix well to combine.
    • Sprinkle the packet of beer yeast over the surface of the mixture and gently stir it in.
    • Seal the fermentation vessel with an airlock or lid fitted with a fermentation lock.
    • Place the vessel in a cool, dark area with a consistent temperature (around 65-75°F or 18-24°C) and let it ferment for about 1-2 weeks, or until fermentation activity subsides.
  4. Bottling:
    • Once fermentation is complete, carefully siphon the beer into sanitized bottles, leaving behind any sediment at the bottom of the fermentation vessel.
    • Seal the bottles with caps or cork stoppers.
  5. Conditioning:
    • Store the sealed bottles in a cool, dark place for an additional 1-2 weeks to allow the beer to carbonate and develop flavor.
  6. Enjoy:
    • After conditioning, chill the beer in the refrigerator before serving.
    • Pour into glasses and enjoy your homemade vegan carrot beer!
