My sister and her husband are pretty flash with a home brew kit. They gave me a kit once. Didnt work. There were a myriad of things that I didnt do right. I will blame my flatmate at the time. The thing is, we still drunk the beer it produced, despite how awful it turned out to be. It was cloudy, had a tonne of dregs and tasted dreadful. But it was beer so we drank it all. Makes complete sense.
It was my first and as at this point in time, my last batch of beer. Why bother waiting a week or some foul tasting beer when you can just pop down to the supermarket at any time of the day and pick up a box a export gold for $18? Sure it tastes like crap, but at least you know it’s going to taste like crap and you don’t have to wait a week to find out.
