I'm surprised having some pretty darn good ales and loggers home brewed in the area at our local bar. I never made beer before but I tried my hand at wine for a few years. Only one wine was I called great most of you would good yuk. Rhubarb very dry but darn good.

Hmm, a brewed logger, that is an interesting concept.

Maybe it has something in common with this?

Brewed beer and wine both at home for several years, until kids plus work got in the way. In my experience, acceptable wine is much easier to make than acceptable beer. Really good wine or beer are both a bit trickier.

Had great luck over the years with fruit wines. Pears, apples, cherries and especially strawberries. Best luck with beers was in brew-it-yourself shops.

I love microbrew/craft beer. It's basically the only beer(s) I'll drink at this point.

I have considered home brewing, but alas I have enough time consuming hobbies. ;-)

Luckily in this day and age, most good grocery stores in my area have a good assortment of beers, we also have a "beers of the world" that really does have everything, and not to mention we have several restaurants in the area that brew their own (really good) beers.

Most certainly - my last two batches of cherry wine were "more than a little palatable". The one with black cherries was extremely so, rich, dark colour, smooth, fruity with a hint of dryness.

Never brewed my own beer before. Would sure want to try it. Made cider once but that didn't work out that well, tasted a bit too sour.

I make mine at a "U-Brew" aka brew-on-premises. I've had only good experiences with such places, as they are mostly run by people passionate about good beer (and wine.) It costs a little more than making your own at home but they have the resources (ie huge walk-in fridge at the perfect temperature 24x7, automatic bottling and sanitizing machines) to end up with a better result. Ends up being better than what's available retail (more flavour as it's unpasteurized, no additives or preservatives) and much cheaper.

Cheers!

I've made my own beer plenty of times, two golden rules: sterilise everything twice (just to be sure) and avoid temperature changes as much as possible.

Getting about time to make some more Sloe Gin as well.

I enjoyed a great bottle of IPA last night I'd kill to have the recipe, it was so smooth.
