Aaahh - homebrew.  Been many a year since I made some of that.  My beers were OK but my wines were great - especially sparkling feijoa.  Been seriously thinking about starting up again as I still have the gear, and thinking about getting a still as well.  We'll have to talk some more at some stage...

Good to hear you're enjoying yourself so much.
