    so, sometime this year ive decided im going to turn a corner of my spare room into a little brewing den, get some nice ale on the go, ive heard lager is a piss about to do. dont mind bitter though so im gunna give it a shot, maybe some knock your head off potent wine aswell.

    ive been looking it up, its surprisingly easy to do, my old man used to make it beer all the time,so i ve always been intrested in it. sometimes half decent his stuff was , gotta be satisfying getting pissed on your own brew.

    so, anyone tryd it ? had good results/bad results.. ? it seems surprisingly easy and straight forward

    one of my mates dad home brews red wine, had bout 6 bottles the other night after pub, gotta say wasnt too bad

    you should deffo make some ale or something easy like slow berry gin, just get a bottle of london dry gin and shove loads of slow berrys in it, well good

    I used to brew black ale/stout a while ago after my dad bought me a kit. Not too shabby, interesting to do and gets you pissed as a fart as it generally tends to be stronger than store-bought beers.

    Nothing quite like the days leading up to when the brew is ready and your first glass :teeth:

    mate of mine brewed his own beer when he was 15 and his parents had this walk in closet which was pretty roomy so he decided to put the bottles in there and apparently when you ferment the drink the pressure can rise so much in the bottle it pops the cork, so he had about 15 1.5 litre bottles in his parents walk in closet and one night they all fucking blow, the entire floor was flooded with beer, all the clothes soaked haha his father gave him the beating of a life time haha that little shit can you imagine
