Mr. Booze

My next project.  I've used the Mr. Beer once before, and I was pretty happy with the results.  The fresh beer tasted great and didn't give me near the odd side effects that I can get with 'factory beer' (head aches, congestion, etc.  It's not consistent enough to get me to stop drinking it though).

As well, I've got a line on some excess pears, so I'm going to try and make a batch of hard fruit cider as well.  On one of the sites that I was doing research on, they summed up one of my thoughts I had with the Mr. Beer: there's something magical about opening that tub and realizing that you've made alcohol.  There's something very liberating about making booze that hasn't seen the paw of the alcohol tax man.
