Beer For Pennies

Do you like beer or wine?

You do?

But I bet you aren’t pleased with the price you have to pay for it.

In the UK beer in many pubs is close to £3.00 a pint. In Canada, you can pay $5.00, which seems worse because of the difference in the value of money. Drinking in Sweden is more expensive still, last time I was there, ale cost the equivalent of £5.00 a pint.

These prices do a lot to generate income for governments and the drinks industry. They may also reduce overall alcohol consumption in a population, which is supposedly a excellent thing.

But what we are losing sight of is that alcoholic drinks are natural and cost very small to make. The ingredients are to be found anywhere that there is sunshine and plants will grow. Early civilisations loved beer and wine thousands of years ago. That’s a pretty thorough, long-term test if you want to identify health reasons for not drinking.

In essence all you need for alcoholic drinks is a fruit juice or plant extract containing a sugar and yeast to make it ferment. If the fruit has its own sugar you don’t really need to add anything. What’s more, yeast is frequently present in the air we breathe and there is a chance that fermentation will occur even if you do nothing with the juice except leave it in a warm place.

I found this out when I learned a carton of orange juice that my children had opened and then left in the back of the car. It had been forgotten about for a week or so. Since it was summer, the car was warm most of the time and conditions were appropriate for fermentation to occur. Out of curiosity I tried a taste of it and learned that it had become distinctly alcoholic.

Later this led me on to a more scientific approach to beer and wine-making. See my article 27ways.ca/cheapbooze.htm cheap booze for full details of how to make alcoholic drinks for pennies.

Cheers,

Robert
