I used to do a lot of wine very potent (you can buy alcohol tolerant yeast and whack up the alcohol to quite a significant level)

It tasted like rocket fuel and paint stripper but when stored for 6 months they became a bit more palatable.

Used to brew. Nice amber ale. Cleanliness is a real bother, but if you don't work, it won't work.

Still grow hops along the back fence (Cluster and Cascade). Love the aroma, but that is just my Milwaukee heritage showing. :-)

I've just started homebrewing. Made up my first batch last night, and it's merrily fermenting away in my hall closet.




oh dear god, get it out of the house- a garage or a shed would be ideal. If things go wrong, you will be looking at a lot of housework to put things right after an explosion of homebrew

Sadly, that's not an option. I'm a single guy living in a one-bedroom apartment. So, my place is supposed to smell like a brewery!

It's not the days of cleaning and sticky floors that is so bad. It's the weeks of yeast smell you can't get out of your house.

No, its supposed to smell of a heady mix of the perfumes of your many consecutive conquests

Brewery is an acceptable second choice though Maybe you should sweet talk the people in the apartment under yours as a pre-emptive tactic for when beer starts dripping on their TV from the ceiling in the dead of night

I used to brew beer, wine, Cider, even mead and Sake.

I found a great alcohol tolerant yeast and with a lot of care could brew a cider at around 20% ABV!!!!

Used to put my mates in a coma!! No one ever managed to drink 2lts and remain conscious!!

As Iaibear says, its Vital that everything is sterile.

Would have loved to try to make a still, but it is illegal in the UK.

Good luck with it

Regards

Mark

You give me far too much credit.

No worries there. I'm going to put the bottles into Sam Adams boxes, and the boxes will go into a large rubber tub. So, if they do bust, no harm done, except to the precious brew.

But here's hoping that problem never presents!

Hey ZZ...

The only time you need to worry about exploding bottles is from bottling too early when the yeast hasn't finished doing its job, or from adding too much sugar at bottling...

The only thing to really watch for is the brewing temperature - make sure it stays more or less constant within the operating range of the yeast.

You can't go far wrong with brew kits, so there's really nothing to worry about. The only other thing to watch for is contamination at bottling time.

Oh, and the longer you leave it to condition in a cool, dry, place, the better the taste. Enjoy.

NOW YOU TOO CAN TURN WATER INTO WINE!

How to make prison wine;


What you'll need;

powdered fruit juice

fruits; preferably tomatoes or grapes

water

yeast. If you can't come across yeast, you will need moldy bread and a sock or pillowcase.

garbage bags

------------

Put all items in the garbage bag. Double or triple the bag. If using moldy bread, put it in the sock or pillowcase, tie it at the top and put in the garbage bag. Tie off the garbage bag, tear a small hole at the top to let the CO2 escape.

Wait a month.

Enjoy.
