Does anyone homebrew? We do....we brewed a youngs bitter and it works out to be £1 per pint.

So get brewing.....

I do, got started with the kits where you get everything in one can.

The brubox stuff is dead easy to make and produces a fairly good pint.

So much better ....you learn a new hobby and it is so much cheaper than any of the pubs or shops.

Just finished my second batch of 5 Gallons. This time I waited and kept it out of the airing cupboard.

Will have to leave it in the bottles for a few weeks then put some in the fridge for another week or so.

U making it from a kit or from original?

Youngs lager kit. First batch was a bit sour, due to the airing cupboard being too hot so it fermented in about 24 hours!!

This batch took about 10 days, before I bottled it. Not tasted it yet though.

well let me know how it tastes....we tried a youngs bitter kit to start with and it tastes great not too strong...but strong enough. Also made wine but we will maybe try from scratch with the wine.

I used to make home brew rum (aka methylated spirits) until I once drank a pint and never touched another drop of home brew again.

Spirits are very easy to make at home but the taste is rather crap.

Not even going down that road....I am sticking to wine and beer and lager.
