Nah, I'm either into helping someone a bit or about degustating the result. The only thing I entirely do myself for the cause is growing chili peppers for tinctures and I may assure that the result is setting butts on fire. Cool

Hah, is vodka really that cheap there?

With recent currency rate, yes, especially for foreigners. But even cheaper in Belarus and they manufacture many local distillates, plus now have 5-days visa-free entrance mode, thus becoming most ideal place for alco-tourism. Smile

Hah the chillis sound somewhat lethal!

Alcohol here is pricey in pubs but bottled ciders/beers i do not think are that expensive in the great scheme of it all. a pint of cider here in a pub would be nearly £4. a bottle 500ml is around £2.00- max i'd pay £3.00.
I buy bag in boxes so the pints work out very cheap. Wilkins Cider for example (as i believe i've stated ..one of the best Ciders direct from a farmer) is £38 for 20L (35 pints) which works out about £1.08 a pint which is obviously stupidly cheap! otherwise Gwatkins is £48 for 20L so that works out around £1.30 a pint. i rarely drink bottled ciders due to a) price b) quality. sulphites in cider is ok, but without is a whole lot better.

How much does a regular priced bottled beer/stout cost there?

Big breweries do not make stouts here, porter and simple IPA is maximum that might be expected, price for decent massive beers varies between 0.88-1.48 Euro for 0.5L, prices for piss are starting from 0.5 Euro per 0.5L; possible to drink between 0.66-0.88 (often available for promo-prices in net supermarkets). Craft is starting from 2.2 per 0.5. Pubs are usually at least double-priced from mentioned above.

P.S. If I'd buy booze per 20L batches, I'd be dead or vegetable at least 10 years ago. Laughing So I don't even keep alcohol reserve at home, as otherwise I may stop only when the last drop is done.

Spencer Trappist Alle, finally!

Expensive it was (€ 3.45 for a 33 cL botle) but the taste is authentically in league with other trappist beers.

Finally lost Vermont *IPA virginity with this perversion:



Opinions are polarized, but I've appreciated. Bitter raspberry present and it's my cup of tea! Razz

Raspberry juice marries quite well with beer IMO, especially yeasty ones.

Now drinking some chesnut beer from the Saint-Étienne area. There are a lot of these beers in the Massif Central and around and most work quite well.

Back on the wagon..

20L - Gwatkins - Yarlington Mill Cider - 7% (Sweet Cider)

Not for the feint of heart.. REAL cider from Herefordshire.
No factories/goggles or bullshit with this stuff ...if you can get your hands on it abroad and like Cider this one would certainly be worth trying.

About 12/14 pints into the box so far ...

A nice old documentary i found a few weeks or so back for those interested.
Back before the UK was full of limp wristed dickheads wearing Adidas tracksuits and talking like niggers.

Not many unfortunately. Cider is just catching on the US and thankfully I live in an area (Wisconsin) with a lot of smaller cider makers. It seems a lot of them do French style cider more than English, but here's hoping that changes.

I've never delved too much into French Cider but i know they know how to make it in certain regions ..there's a few docs on youtube you should check out (pretty much all in French i do believe) Brittany/Normandy are notorious areas/regions for Cider making. As for English (or British) Ciders i'd advise contacting Wilkins Cider - http://wilkinscider.com/ it even says there he can deliver to the USA. OR MAYBE try Gwatkins Cider (as ever you'll be stung on postage i would imagine) but it might be best to have a look into it.

What do you mainly drink?

Real french cider ain't an easy drink for lovers of sugary stuff. The best stuff is artisanal/farmer one you can find in local shops. And sometimes the cider one can find in supermarkets may be decent and cheaper than any decent beer with the same alcoholic content.

Tonight it's Zundert Trappist beer. Interesting taste that needs to be worked on, a point on which I do agree with some beer bloggers. Anyway it's very enjoyable.

Just charged the mega-tincture:



Jays Peach Ghost Scorpion (Bhut Jolokia X Trinidad Scorpion) + The Pain (Trinidad Douglah X Pimenta da Neyde) + Ecuadorian Red Pepper for Hell (rocoto)

+



50° selected wine distillate (Chardonnay + Aligote & Bianca), 0.5L

=



Fucking Hell in 1...2...3 months! Twisted Evil Will post the photo of final result, should be beautiful, as strong alcohol extract all red colour from peppers (they literally become snow-white!). Cool
