DailyDirt: Making Spirits Bright

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

There was a time when making your own alcohol wasn’t a completely legit thing to do. Sure, now anyone can just go down to a corner store almost any time and pick up a chilled alcoholic beverage, but if you’re a real do-it-yourself-er, you won’t want to drink just anything that comes in a pretty bottle. Here are a few projects you might want to check out someday when you’re not feeling like guzzling something made by Anheuser-Busch-Inbev-SABmiller.

After you’ve finished checking out those links, take a look at our Daily Deals for cool gadgets and other awesome stuff.

It’s not real moonshine unless it’s made in a still cobbled together out of old car and septic system parts by someone who unironically listens to banjo music. Even I know that and I’m from Europe.

And the PicoBrew actually looks like a really interesting and useful bit of kit, but I think they could stand to de-emphasise the use of premade ingredient kits; that’s fine if you’re just starting out and teaching yourself to use the equipment, but if you don’t start having a go at your own bespoke ales then you’re missing the point.

Having premade beer kits is just silly, and the PicoBrew makes it even sillier. All you’re doing with a picobrew is buying someone else’s premade beer that you have to wait 2+ weeks to drink. Why not just buy a few six packs from you favorite brewery instead? You’ve had exactly as much say in how it’s made.

I love homebrewing, but using a kit means it’s not your beer. Most of the fun comes from varying your recipes and seeing what you end up with, whether it be awesome or awful.
