Hi Hen-night (waves).  :)
I would rather live in a world
where my life is surrounded by mystery
than live in a world so small that my mind could comprehend it...✿~ Harry Emerson Fosdick

Thanks for the welcome, sorry about the nameonly i'm a member of the chicken forum as well.
My first passion is homebrew though, been doing it for 25yrs on and off with mixed results I can tell you.
I dont buy kits or make beer or lager, iv'e tried with poor results.
Cider and wine for me, cheaper the better and i'm going to sample a few tonight with my neighbour....Aden

Hi  Hen Night

  welcome I am also new ish to the forum.  I am a keen home brewer also.  But I love brewing beer as I type there is 6 Gallons of bitter boiling.  I was deeply disapointed with kits and now use malted grains and hops just like most micro brewers.  The results are great with most people not believing I made it.

  Also do wine from kits but these have become expensive of late.

Hi Paul, iv'e never been able to make a good beer or lager for some reason, so hav'nt tried for years. Sounds like you've cracked it though if they dont believe you've made it.
I cannot comment on kits because the only time I use them is when the are given as a gift, just done a youngs strawberry..not bad at all... Aden.

I've done the Woodfordes Wherry kit and it was fantastic (22 squids but still cheaper than the pub).
Is it complicated to make from scratch Paul?  :)

It's a really tasty ale Hen-night and makes about 5 gallons. They sell it in Wilkos.  :tongue2:

Down to my last 5 litres of ginger beer stompy.  :(  Still...ginger & lemon in the kitchen...cauldron at the ready... :D

Same here.  It really is toooo good!
