Happy International Beer Day!

No, really.

My first homebrewing experiment was a huge success. So big a success, in fact, that I drank most of it last week. It wasn’t supposed to be ready until this week. Cloudy, mayhap, but very tasty.

The process feels kind of dopey. You open a couple of cans, add water and yeast and wait. Brewing for morons.

On the other hand — really excellent beer for 40p a pint! How dopey can that be? So I think I’ll do a few more kits before I try malting and hopping and doing it old school.

Currently in production: that fake vodka stuff with the high-yield yeast.

Next up: a cider kit. Cider here is hard. Very, very hard.

If you close your eyes, you can hear the hangover…
