UG Homebrew Thread!

Well, this is exactly as it sounds.

Is there any other UG'ers out there who like to homebrew?

That's Homemade Wine's, Ale's, Lager's, Spirits, Moonshine's, ect.

If not, I'd like to suggest you all have a go at trying it sometime.

If there's any budding starters out there, I'm happy to help out and give some advice if they need it.

Tonight, I set about making:
About 30 litres of vodka, weighing in at about 23% ABV last time I made some.

25 litres of white wine, Chardonnay to be exact, about 12.5-12.8% ABV.

40 pints of King 'Korona', my successful 'Corona' styled mex. lager/beer, set at 4.3% so it can be enjoyed more.

I have also got, a MisterJager, a Jagermeister clone of my own! 6 bottles worth specially brewing for a special occassion!

And,

Finally!

6 bottles of 'Sparkling Wine', in Champenoise style, but since it's not made in the Champagne region in France, it's not 'REAL' Champage.



Any questions, UG?

I've helped my friend to brew beer 3 or 4 different times. It's fun to make your own beer. We have an amber ale that's actually done right about now. We'll be trying it tomorrow.


The best one we've made so far was a chocolate stout.

Ah, nice one!
I'm not a big fan of stouts myself, to be honest.

I have about 15 litres of Pear cider at the minute, maturing well too, has a much better taste than the pear ciders on commercial sale, i.e. Kopparberg, Gaymers, ect.
All carbonated too, it's pretty nice when you get a perfect fizz in a drink and it's matured well, all along with the perfect temperatures.

This sounds like it could be interesting.
I wouldn't mind looking into it.
Any suggestions on where to start? Or recommended readings?

I made wine out of grape juice, baking yeast and sugar

That's about all the homebrewing I do...

Mead is a VERY simple drink to make, CG!
First off you need a 5 litre/1-Gallon container:
Get about 3-4lbs of Honey & a sachet of 1 Gallon/'6 bottle' brewers yeast! Mix the honey in with water at about 40 Deg. Cel. & add the yeast, put the lid back onto the bottle and add an airlock if you have one or know about making one;

If not, put a wrap of cling-film over the bottle/jar opening and put a pin hole in it, put another layer over and put another in, making 2 holes in the bottle layer, do this a third time/layer and your ready to leave it for about 2-4 weeks of fermenting time and your sorted!
About 7% Mead!

RobHC, I'd suggest using proper brewer's yeast rerally, you get the real ABV amount & 1000x better the taste!

I should also add!

Don't wash any of your brewing stuff in normal detergent/washing-up liquid!

You really need to use a sanitiser solution otherwise it'll infect the brew.

Ya I know. I only actually did it for shits and giggles. If I was gonna get into brewing I would find a place to buy proper yeast.

That's awesome. I wanted to make some absinthe once, but gave it up. Homebrewing is way cool though.

I made my own "wine" out of grape juice concentrate, baker yeast, water and sugar. It tasted like crap, but it's main purpose was to get me and some friends drunk for a low cost. (It succeeded.)

I don't have access to a lot of good supplies or space to make it in, so I am pretty much stuck making hobo-crap. But I really like the idea of homebrewing. There is something cool to me about making something of quality yourself and enjoying it. In the future I will definitely pursue it more.

We have some mead going right now. We added some strawberry flavor to ours. We also have it fermenting for a year. I think it will be ready in a few more months.

Gibson, do you really not have space for a bucket about 40cm across and about 1m tall?
Either way;
I'd suggest saving up!

I believe Distilling is illegal in some states of America?

If anyone wants some pictures of my full set-up in go, I'm putting all the stocks out on the go tomorrow bar my 'water purifier' *cough* Distiller *cough*, haha.

Well, I'm back off to enjoy my glass of wine.

I doubt anything will ever ferment for a year;
You/people may of left it that long though, as fermentation finishes, but the longer you leave it after fermentation has completely finished, the lower the alcohol content gets, I think it works out at about 0.8% per year at perfect fermentation conditions, unless it's been racked off and stored.



I know way to much about this.

Well, I live in a small student apartment, so nowhere convenient to put it. I was also under the impression that you needed more stuff. I don't really know anything about it though.
