    no, but always wondered if it was fun. A friend of mine used to make Elderberry wine, tasted shit but it would put you on the floor. Think he ran his Yamaha on it too!

    a friend of mine got a scary homebrew absynth kit. I remember trying the brew whilst we were on holiday in breen sands, i do not remember the 15 hours after, i done remember waking up on the beech, in a pair of shorts and a vest in a hole i had dug the previous afternoon, he woke up in a cave. to this day, we have no idea what happened!

    lesson to learn, dont buy a home brew kit from a country you can not pronounce!
     
  7. :lol: thats mental.. I don't think i'll get to the home brew spirits to be honest :)

    i'm moving house soon, i might try it in the new place. I couldnt do it in the best window sill in my house at the moment, my cat likes sleeping there.

    A mate of mine back when I was at school made himself some wine, he was like 15 and I wasn't gonna go near that stuff! He was a bit of a nutter though :D

    nothing...he has a few different ways of meowing at me, its cool that i know them now, however it is annoying trying to explain to my housemates/girlfriend that i know because of the tone of his meow what he wants. they say it all sounds the same and i should get my cat to shut up!
