    I have been brewing beer for about 9 years now.(mostly pale lagers, draught, dark ales, stout, apple cider). I originally started because of my love of beer & also to save money & a healthier option to the commercial brands..(though I still like these as well.. ).

    Does anyone else brew on this forum? I would like to hear if you have any interesting tips or secrets that you may use in your brews.
    Also your alkohol percentage, methods, effects after consumption...etc..

    I would like to start, however, not enough time or willpower.

    I thought about buying the beer machine once...but I can't imagine it produces drinkable beer.

    Oooha, I'm brewer and my method is simply 2 pots. I have been brewing for only 2 years and I think that even the ultimate bonehead can make good beer from malt extract, Saaz hops and any yeast. Well, I do it this way at least.

    My best - great spicy wheat beer.

    In fact, I have some fermenting beer nerby right now - allgrain pale ale of about 14° platto.

    Beer - or the fermented beverage made from grain - was the first food of the first agrarians (that mad men from Anatolia). And it's still the most important staple for the Czech nation nowadays.

    Hi!

    I brew meads, fruit wines and ciders. Though I like beer, my friends (we have a local informal brewing group) already make some great ones, so we trade with eachother. I prefer straight, dry mead, made the natural way (boiled) without sulfites. I use saccharomyces cerivisiae for strength and durability, also because of my warm climate. Local honey (white sage or purple sage) from Californian inland agricultural regions was used. For pH adjustments a lemon or two will do. It has a nice flavor and dryness, and meads made in this way have had a pleasant taste (IMO) and strong though perhaps slightly brief effect. The most commended beverage I've had the honor of sharing with others was Cyser (made half raw 8-apple cider, half honey-must). Sure to please all. Also have enjoyed meads with adjunct of plum, blackcurrant and blueberry (this last one is sure to please ladies more than plain mead for some reason). A friend from Denmark recommended to me what she called an ancient tradition in the farming communities, which is, the mixing down of the mead with lager/pilsner type beer to a ratio of about 1:1. This is a successful drink in many ways.
