    I would love to be the official taste tester of the New Brew section. Let me know when you need my address. LMAO

    It would be great to read, may get into it some day.

    my father inlaw makes beer wine and shine. he even sells the wine to a few local stores its called "Frog Hole Hill". The beer and shine is for his local VFW free for the veterens and not for sale to anyone else.

    I never made home brew from scrach I always used a store bought malt but I ain't brewed any beer in 2-3 years cause they stoped making the malt I was using.That really messed up my brewery cause I had a good beer and I have all the gear to have my brew on draft.:sad2:

    How freaking cool is that. You make your own beer:big_smile: Oh the possibilities. Actually my uncle, who is as redneck as they come use to make rubarb wine. It was pretty good.

    I have been making homade wine for about 17 years now. Cherry & blackberry in fruit. Vignoles, catawba and concord in grapes. Also have tried a few strawberry, peach, currant & watermellon over the years, but not consistantly.
    Overall, my best was a few special years of cherry. Also, the white Vignoles has had a few good years and Catawba is consistantly good 4 out of 5 years.

    The last few years have not been kind in every kind I have tried. The only thing I can think of is that I have been overthinking the proccess. Time to get back to the basics and let nature run it's course.

    At any given time I have 14 five gallon carboys going. I usually let them go about a year or so before bottling. Once bottled, the whites are drank or given away within 2 years and the reds are gone within 4 years.

    Later this week, I'll post some pic's of my cellar.

    I used to work with these guys, one brewed his own beer (very good when it was cold) one made his own wine (very good, kinda strong) and one made his own shine (would peel the paint off the walls!!). Now that I think about it, I kinda miss the old job.:crazy:

    I've been thinking about some hobby home brewing myself. Does anybody know what the start up cost is? How much room does it take up? And, does it have any odor issues ie: can you brew in your home?
