    I'm interested and want to try it. I'm poor/in college, and I'd rather get Spaten quality for Keystone price. Any tips/advice/experiences would be useful...

    yeast+water+sugar=alcohol.

    If you call adding that to a 4 liter bottle and waiting a week...yes...

    use wine yeast. higher alcohol content.

    Homebrewing is a wonderful thing. I haven't done it in too long, probably because I have been committing most all my spare time to these amazing plants. When we used to brew, though, the stouts we could make put those off the shelf to shame. Ahhhh! Mmmmmm! Oooooh! Rrrrrrp!

    Alas, there's some subscripts to be added.

    For instance, without sterilization you get "wild yeast cultures" in the end product which makes everything taste that same... Not good. lol

    I've done quite a bit of brewing... I'll see if I can come up with a worthwhile post later. There're some really good and cheap books out there.

    Just adding some good yeast to your favorite juice can make for an excellent cider.
