That easy, eh? Well, yes, in exactly the same way as learning a tune on a tin whistle is easy. Sometimes you’re happy with ‘How Much Is Mary’s Little Doggy In The Mulberry Bush’, and sometimes you crave a little more.

that's a pint of mine!
I'm currently exploring All Grain brewing, involving mash tuns, sparges and all-sorts, and after a few frustrating 12 hours session (one stretched as long as 48 hours, as I had to keep leaving the house to do things, like, y'know, work, and like, singing), I've really enjoyed the whole process. However, I still can't wait to order another tin of something.
So far, I’ve used the word party once, and parties twice. Sooo last century. Anyway, bottle conditioned homebrew (beer with yeast in the bottom), which is probably what you’ll have made, doesn’t travel very well, so you’ll need to host this little soiree. If you’re the kind of person that plans a party 4 weeks ahead, then homebrew is for you. If you’re the kind of person who plans a party 4 weeks ahead of time, keep me out of it. I’d much rather sit on my tod, at home watching a Stephen Segal movie with a two-litre bottle of bitter. Actually, that’s not far off the reason I got this into howmbrewing in the first place. We were a little hard up for a while there, and Madame Homebrew got me a full Pilsner kit for Christmas, and I’ve thought of nought else since then. There’d been no precedent for homebrew, ale or anything in my life up till that point, but I seized the idea and ran with it. I used to drink Carlsberg, but I'm alright now.

Seriously, you’d be silly not to.
