    my mate was doin this.. had issues with sealing the bottles (as he didn't have the right tool for it) and there was alot of sediment (obv his filtering was poor or something)

    this stuff he made didn't taste that good, but it got u smashed?!

    i would ask him, but seem like you prob know more than him already.. soo yea.. gd luck!

    SHUT UP YOU SPENG. ONLY I MAY SPEAK. THEREFORE, HEAR ME NOW. MICING UP GUITARS, FROM A 15 WATT AMP AND A BOSS OVERDRIVE PEDAL IS TR00. I WILL SPEAK SOON AGAIN, but im not quite sure about what at this point. possibly the dangers of church burnings. perhaps general butt naked, thats right, check the vice documentary on youtubes if you dont belive me. life dont seem to be worth much in liberia ffs jeez i thought i seen some shit being out and about traveling the world but liberia puts it all to shame. OR is it vice docus that just makes everything they film so exaggerated and weird?

    first few batches will prob taste like shit... very trail n error process mate.. different times of fermentaion, the bottles you use, the enviroment etc etc so many diff scenarios can effect tatse, texture and how pissed u get off it.

    we used one of the kits at uni for my mates birthday. when we sealed it in bottles we put different sugars and stuff in different bottles and labelled them. brown sugar was real nice, caster sugar was a bit meh, and the honey became literally explosive we had them outside and occsaionally they would just blow up.
