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!

Me, my dad and grandad used to brew beer a few years back. Was always fun to see who's was the best. Grandad always won, dont know how he did it but his tasted the best all the time.

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!

Dont i know it! or not as the case is! I was thinking about growing my own salad, I dont drink so it seems like a good idea.

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

I knew a guy stole some ethanol from the science lab and mixed it with Sunny D when we were 15 :lol:

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!
