I would have to say that it's because I can. And because I think beer tastes good. And as with everything else if someone else can make it and it tastes good then I stand a reasonably good chance of making it as good or better. It was the same way with cooking for me.

All that being said, I have always enjoyed alcohol of varying types and after learning that it was illegal to distill I turned my sights to making beer.

Hard to say really. I like beer, but even more than that I like to know where my food comes from and what goes into making it. My wife and I are not really super-crazy foodies, but we like good food made from scratch. We love living foods like beer, wine, cheese, pickles and are slowly incorporating more and more of them into our home repertoire. We're also getting into canning our own garden produce.

I should also add that my paternal grandparents had a spanking paddle with a bent nail in it that had "Poverty Knob" burned across it. all my uncles hated the damn thing (guess why), but I still chose Poverty Knob as my home brewing brand. my granny's one of the toughest people I ever knew.

Reminds me of St Mary's school in the early 60's. The principal nun had a wooden paddle with red electrical tape wrapped around it & roofing staples sticking out of it. She ruined a new pair of trousers I was wearing. boy,was dad po'd. But my Grandma was one of those that made you go out & cut a switch off the weeping willow in the side yard. If it wasn't cut like a buggy wip,she'd cut one & then cut you a new one!

We had a crab apple tree... The branches were like leather. Smooth and bendable.
