Default Mother Earth News talks beer

I checked out Mother Earth News' website (it is a publication concerning environmentally friendly living) and what do I see but an article on how much better home brewing is! It even mentions homebrewtalk.com.

I think we've actually got quite a few - lol. Hippies and Libertarians!

I thought it was a nice article - although I did chuckle a bit when I read the part about being able to brew beer for less than buying it. I guess that's probably technically true, but seems to be the exception more than the rule.

Yeah, I thought about the price thing too. Luckily I don't have to justify the costs of my hobbies to hubby, but I DO remind him that the beers we usually buy average $8/6 pack, and so technically I'm saving us money (though we now drink more beer, so I don't know how advantageous the cost argument could really be!)

If you just take the cost of ingredients into account is it cheaper to brew 5 gallons than to buy 48 micro brews; guess no one told them we all spend all our money on equipment.

What goes around: Issue #4 page 68. An amusing bit about "dis-arming" a batch while wearing a welder's mask and gloves. (1970) I lost interest in TMEN after the first publisher went bankrupt in the mid-90's.

I think they glean my posts on their forums for ideas. First I posted about PEX, then an article comes out about PEX. Then I start a homebrew thread (shortly before finding a much more capable site for discussing homebrew ) and now lookeee here . Hrmmm. They should put me on the brainstorm crew.

Oh no ya di-hint!!
Hippie does NOT = Libertarian
Libertarian more = to anarchist then Hippie
Besides Libertairians just want to be left alone and not force peace, love and green living on anyone
