Default Are truly hard alcoholics accepted here, or shunned?

I just took a 6 day fermented wine out, and drank it. It was wonderful. Am I nuts?

I'm kind of one of these --->

I wouldn't say shunned, no.... but what exactly are you here for? Sound like drinking less than a week old hooch grape juice is your thing, and I'm not knockin it: to each their own... but around here we cherish our creations and invest lots of time in research, work and patience to make the best product we can.

In short:
if you want to learn the art... this is the place to be.
if you want tips on how to make hooch even faster... ya aint gonna find that info here

Well, you do at least. That was the first alcohol I've ever fermented. I'm here for the same reasons you are: romance, skepticism, wonder.

I have done lots of astrophotography, Simply stated though, I am a real alcoholic, and darn it, I got drunk, and filtered this thing, and it's really "freegin" good.

Why would you ever think that you have some sort of hobby that is more intelligent than an average alcoholic?

Thanks.

Hhahahahha.

oh God, it never ends.

Here's a couple of pages of astrostuff by me:

Edgar Allan Poe was an Alcoholic, so was Ernest Hemingway.

That speaks for itself.

Though an appeal to authority, still a total win.

Easy: being a drunk is only about consumption. Being a homebrewer is about creating something. Not to say the two can't overlap...
