    How many brew beer at home? Spent the whole day cooking. First batch was wheat beer. The second was a pilsner, and now cooking a pale ale. Hot work but the results are wonderful. Will be filling the kegs in about three weeks.

    Here is a song by an acquaintance of mine. His most famous song is a co-write with Jerry Reed for a certain Burt Reynolds movie

  5. A friend of mine has done that for years. Not to my taste. Too heavy for me and he doesn't make any flavored which I will drink.

    All I need is my 12 pack of Milwaukee's Best Light and I am happy. See, he says he is a connoisseur of beer and I am just a common sewer of beer.

    Yeah, pretty much!!!

    I like dark and light beers. I won't condemn your Milwaukee's Best. I have emptied many of those cans myself years ago. I am retired and just enjoy making and drinking beer. And it is cheaper than most premium beers from the store.

    Distilled spirits for 'fuel use' is 100% legal. If you produce it for personal use, and to be used on your own property, you aren't subject to bonds, taxes, and denaturing your product unless it is removed from the premises. If it is removed from your property it has to be rendered undrinkable by adding in other items to render it unfit for consumption and is addressed under 26 U.S. Code § 518. :)

    You do have to get a permit to make fuel. You can get paperwork to make shine too, but I don't want to go there. Beer works for me. I'm not much of a whiskey drinker anyways. I have drunk enough beer to "float a battleship" as my Dad used to say.

    Shamefully I will admit to having had someone give me a whole beer making kit some years ago and I haven't done a damn thing with it....and it's not like I don't enjoy drinking beer either, name's GLUGLUG after all....

    That's adorable. What's it produce? About a pint of finished product each run?

    I hear ya. Besides, Vodka's so much easier to make and you don't have to wait a year for it to age.

    I used to home brew, miss it so started collecting parts to brew again. I don't drink much anymore and go for flavor over quantity now!

    Good old applied biochemistry. I made a batch with my roommate once. I'd like to get into it again, but no pale ales. I prefer my beer drinkable, thanks...
