Default To "DeRouxs Broux ( and all )

Thanks for your info and kind words in reply to "Cost of a good pint..."
I posted first in the beginners forum titled "Second brew just started "
It looks like prices over there are similar to the UK when you convert dollars to pounds.
I like to keep my brews simple so I just use extract, bought as a "kit" with the dried yeast. This is actually called wort. I do like to experiment a little with the sugar, most kits recommend 1kg and this produces a normal beer about 3.4 abv. I like to try and make the strongest, most evil brew possible so I have just used 1kg each of white and brown sugar, plus a jar of honey !
Most kits here are around £6.99 to £8.99 but I just found this new one in the same shop at £4.99. For a 40 pint brew including sugar it works out about 15 to 25p per pint.
Speaking of brew pubs I remember a very small market town here in Lincolnshire called Alford, I used to go to a pub called The George Inn. Out back was an outbuilding and carved in the beam over the door was : "A. Copperthwaite. Licensed Brewer. 1792 " I was only about 20 at that time and that was when I first became aware of brew pubs. So far as I know we have none here in Lincoln but there is a good one in Derby and one in Peterborough , that one has quite large vats and is actually a micro brewery called Oakham Ales.
Great to meet you and all on the Forum.
Mike.
