The rules I am holding myself to are as follows:
- Don't buy any new equipment
- Use ingredients available to an homebrewer
- For the love of Pete, don't make more than a gallon
Today, I brewed.
I assembled my ingredients:
|1 Gallon of water|
|3 1/4 cups of sugar|

|This required another beer. Being patient is hard.|
|Mmm, limey goodness. Not Kate Winslet, unfortunately.|
It was already fermenting nicely a few hours later:
Further updates will be posted as we go along - I anticipate about a week in the first jug, then a second week to clarify, another 2-3 weeks for bottle conditioning and carbonation.
Something that didn't occur to me until the Mrs. asked me today is this: Who is going to drink it?
That's a good question. A very good question. Anyone here in Austin that remembers what Zima tasted like want to be a guinea pig?
