I don't think I've ever had a sup of home brew that didn't taste like ill horse piss.

Seems to be the preserve of budget conscious students and beardy tw*ts who do a sideline in sloe gin as well.

The only way you can do it properly is to buy or build microbrewery - a bucket in your airing cupboard and a few packets of magic mixture is not going to recreate the taste of anything remotely resembling a decent pint.

Home brew - this place is on the slide imbibing wise since the demise of the Pubester.

I'd suggest doing it from a kit before you start buying that book and doing it properly. It isn't hard to do it properly the worst part is cleaning everything up when you have finished. If you do start doing it properly it's best to have a few on the go at a time so one is always ready for drinking otherwise you'll get gaps when you have none.

Some of the more expensive kits aren't too bad but you are right you'll never get a decent pint without a proper setup. I've done quite a few from scratch; grinding the grain myself and boiling up the hops but it takes time and dedication which, judging from the decreasing enthusiasm in this thread, young Benjamin doesn't have.

A friend from Saudi was telling me the stuff they make in the compounds varies from horse piss to almost the real thing depending who is making what.

Even though Saudi is completely dry, all the ingredients and equipment for homebrewing are on the same shelf in the supermarket

A lot of them make stuff called Sadiki and it is the most vile substance known to man.

Codders asked me to post this picture of his fermenting juices for him. Apparently he's a technomong.



I expect a few pints for the service.

Fancied trying this myself, how difficult is it for a novice to do. A mate of mine does it and did a vodka one but didn't have the right size kit so made it in a smaller one, f*** me it annihalited your guts

Your asking a question that has been answered on the one page thread your posting it on. And you don't brew vodka you distill it.
