 Post subject: Question 2

Is Hex really proud of being able to homebrew mead? It's like the easiest thing to homebrew. Isn't he smart enough to do beer?

It is. I could easily make one in under an hour using an empty soda bottle. Unless he's making a variety that uses something like mint leaves, spices or fruit juice. Nearly ever homemade mead I ever tried was at best like watered down vodka at worst like kerosene. Only exceptions were a mint metheglin a friend of my neighbor made and a raspberry mead I tried at a tasting.

OK, how could you make a mead fit to drink in an hour using an empty soda bottle.

And do you think that your experience of people who make bad unflavoured mead necessarily means that all mead makers make bad mead, unless flavoured?

If so please justify that position.

Easilly. Boil about 1 pound of honey in 1/2 gallon of water for one half hour. Cool the mixture to room temperature in the sink. Add enough spring water to make up for steam that boiled away. Add to empty soda bottle(s) which have previously been rinsed with sanitizing solution. Add yeast mixture (made according to dried yeast directions) Close caps and make sure to release pressure every few hours. In 2 weeks you have something drinkable. Obviously this wont be the best but will be as good as most you find out there. If you want to make it better obviously use homebrewing equipment including airlocks rather than a soda bottle. I started homebrewing beer in 1995 so I know what I'm talking about.

My.

It is interesting to see the behavior of those who are opposed to "The Lulz Crew" when they are given just the slightest bit of advantage over another.

Stay classy!

oh, good grief rigorist.

matt's here to troll, and people are feeding him. It's all in good fun.

The troll is minor the responses are minor, and the troll can leave.

If people itt went ~~E~~ to do this to the members there, then you'd be 100%.

You engage in the same behavior you condemn.

Stay classy!

My yes; we're poking fun at people who troll the forums and make not-so-veiled threats at future trolling attacks.

Shame on us. Shaaaaame.

We do?

We visit other people's boards unsolicited and try to cause trouble?

I was not aware that we did this.

Interesting.

What is it I condemn then, that I am engaging in?

Your behavior is no different than what you decry. Only the targets change.
