I attempted rootbeer in pre bio class, its all yeast poo did you know that? Quite funny. My bio teacher said she tried beer but its too big a hassle. My suggestion...make sure its very ripe.

Well, I haven't distilled, but I do brew beer. I started with the kit beers, but don't like the aftertaste of the dry yeasts, so I switched to homemade from recipes. It's not too bad, you just have be very careful with keeping everything clean. Any active cultures from improperly cleaned bottles for instance can alter the outcome. I'm hoping my Canadian Red Chokecherries produce enough I can start making chokecherry wine. The birds never let me get to them. :P

I'm more into the Australian Sauv Blancs, but sulfites tend to give me heartburn so I've had to back off on wines. :(

i know when you brew your own alcohol, you need to make sure you are producing ethanol not methanol.


if you are producing methanol, you'll gooo blindd.


and you won't be able to look at fishes anymore.


eek
