    Any of you folk brew your own drink?

    Was bottling day for me today, had 6 bottles of apple cider, 6 bottles of vimto cider and 6 bottles of blackcurrant and blueberry. Spare pint left so drank that at 10.50.

    Also put mango, lemon n lime and another apple batch on!

        Its turbo cider so from apple juice, this is only my second brew and the bottles were my first. That pint I had left over was better than anything I've tasted shop brought.

                I tired this a few years ago...didn't go down well...what did you do after getting the apple juice and where did you store it?

                  Mine are in the spare bedroom on a heat pad, when I tasted them they were really good.

                  I've bottled and cold crashed them and now they're in the hut carbing up so they pop.

                      Nice one! I've done a second year batch of elderflower champagane (hey I'm a modern guy) - last year's doesn't have much taste if I'm honest and I'm hoping for better.

                      The elderflower is from a bush/tree that hangs into my garden, so it's fully home based!

                        Popular method is to use slush syrups so here we go.

                        Fruit salad
                        Bubblegum
                        Rhubarb and custard
