This article is to help change or adapt an existing recipe!
What tastes good is extremely subjective and Alchema knows it. This is why we inserted a "Make a Twist" function. This allows you to adapt or change an existing recipe to suit what you want to have in a beverage. Let's begin!
Step 1: Choose a Recipe You Want to Adapt
Once you have chosen the recipe you want to change, at the bottom right hand corner you will see three dots. Tap on that and you will be shown three options. Pick "Twist the Recipe" to begin your adaptation!
The app will automatically create a copy of the recipe under "My Collections".
Step 2: Editing The Recipe
In order to edit the recipe go to the top right corner and tap the "Edit" button. This will allow you to change the recipe to your liking!
Step 3: Recipe Attributes
To change the recipe attributes tap on the pencil and paper icon. This will allow you to change the target ABV% and Brix to your preferences.
Remember! By adjusting this you also need to adjust the extra sugar levels.
Step 4: Main Ingredients
For main ingredients, you can change the amount you want to put in by changing the weight to your desire.
If you want, you can also change the main ingredient to a different one. Just enter the fruit you want to put in and adjust the Brix levels of that fruit.
Step 5: Adding Flavorings
If you want to add a hint of another flavor to your beverage, the app has an add flavoring option. You have the option to decide from fruit, sugar, honey or something entirely different. It is completely up to you!
Input a flavor and how much you want to put in. Don't forget to also input the Brix count of the fruit! This will allow the app to calculate how much extra sugar to put in
Step 6: Extra Sugar
If you have adjusted anything mentioned above, it is important to make sure you have the correct amount of sugar inputted into the app.
The orange bar above will show whether you need to put in more or less sugar. Adjust accordingly and the orange bar will instruct you along the way.
Step 7: Yeast
You can change the type of yeast you want to put into your recipe. It can either be from one of our other four different types of yeast products or it can be from a completely different yeast product that you have picked out. If you have bought one from another dealer, make sure the yeast is for making an alcoholic beverage.
Step 8: Adding Water (Optional)
If the base you have added is a fruit juice, then this step is not needed. If the base is consisted entirely of fresh fruit without any juice, water needs to be put into the pitcher.
Once you are finished, tap on the DONE tab. Your "Make a Twist" recipe is good to go!
