So i got on the internet at the tender age of 15 and found out how to make my own. You see its not actully illeagal to brew you own when under 21 just illeagal to posses it... well i was ok with violating the law of possession, while other of my age group got into trouble for stealing it, or haveing people buy it for them underaged...

    I'm resurrecting an old tread here, but I have a question for you. I'm thinking of doing

    I dont much like botteling either, its mindless, repetitive, and alot of work. I dont brew
    enough to keg though, just means I don't bottle all that often.
