I am Army. Everyone loves the brewer than can brew where you cannot buy it (IRAQ) LOL. I have deployed 2 times now, and they don't let us have alchohol there but you can buy sugar and they have the very best fresh fruit there at the chow halls you can ask for. Just ask your buddies to put fill their pockets with fresh fruit and give it to you later. 1 big plastic coffee container, some yeast and time walla happy soldiers! LOL I have been brewing for 11 years. I am always going outside of conventional brewing thought. Everyone I know wants me to go into brewing professionally but that isn't why I brew. For me it is being able to brew better beer or wine than you can buy in a store. AND plying my artistic side to a brew that everyone begs for.
