Sad that it's illegal to mail alcohol.  Cry

At least via USPS, isn't there some way to send booze around the world though?

Pumpkin Wine, LOL, perfect. Wish I was brave enough to be original. I once made banana wine, which was delicious, but now I only make kits . . .

My brother & I home brew beer. It's not all that expensive. In fact, where I live, it's cheaper to brew beer then it is wine. We LOVE doing it!! It's alot of fun! People get a kick out of the fact that you know how to brew. We've been told that we make a great beer by a local brew master.

You have most of the stuff you'll need to brew beer. All that's left is a 5 gallon carboy. You could be drinking the beer inside 3-4 weeks depending on your formula and type. Believe it of not, 5 gallons isn't as much as you think. You only get about fiftythree 12 oz bottles per batch. We recycle bottles. So, that helps to keep cost down too.

By the way, if you can rmake cookies, you can make beer. It's just that easy!! It's alot simpler then you think. I'll tell you what.....I would be willing to trade some of our home brew for your pumpkin wine! Wink That just sounds sooooooo good!!

Between home brewing and having old boyfriends who were beer snobs, I won't drink domestic beer at all now. I'm spoiled.  Grin

Banana wine is definitely one I'm interested in trying, maybe after tryiing them all I'll decide kits are the way to go!  Wink I'm actually not all that fond of wine, the kind I get from the store at least. I'm putting it down to my lack of sophistication, and I'm hoping I like my own wine a lot more.

Well that's easy enough, if I ever get the urge to mail alcohol. Smiley

I'm definitely going to be making beer. It's been on my to-do list for ages, but there's just always something more pressing... Smiley I will probably just start with a gallon, since my husband and I drink very infrequently it makes sense for us (plus our house is quite small, it's always best to make projects small).

I've heard recommendations to start with malt extract instead of malted barley for ease, but I am partial to the most basic ingredients when possible, do you have any advice on that? (if you tell me malted barley is easy to use I will be most reassured) Smiley

I've worked with both. The only problem with the malted barley can be the smell when you boil it. It can get overwhelming quickly. lol

I'll just have to make it in the summer and open all the windows. Smiley

I've malted barley before in an attempt to make bouza (might even have been a successful attempt, I just don't know what bouza is supposed to taste like, if really goshdarn weird is what I was going for I succeeded!) and as I was roasting it the house smelled like cookies, it was amazing. I doubt that would be the problem with it becoming overwhelming though, or it wouldn't be a problem... Smiley
