    Well this is what I had in mind. I love cider and I love maply syrup so why not make a cider
    with about two to three pounds of maple syrup? I've made meads with maple syrup and they have
    never lasted ...

    Well you can start that way with equipment or you can do some junkyard brewing as I and my
