The making and consuming of all types of fermented drinks, such as: brewing your own beer, beer tasting and home wine making

In this episode, I will share some tips about how to get the most out of an inexpensive, entry-level homebrewing kit such as the Mr. Beer branded kit. These tips will work with any kit, however.

Even though it was not the focus of your podcast, I found the bit about eastern Kentucky accents particularly interesting. Many persons fail to appreciate the rich variety of speech patterns, that the phrase "Southern accent" embraces. I'm from eastern Virginia and my mother was from the hills of far northwestern South Carolina, and, though both accents were clearly "southern," they were quite different.

I remember once dropping down from the Blue Ridge Parkway somewhere in far southwestern North Carolina to head south to Atlanta and being almost unable to understand what the clerk at the gas station was saying. It was unlike any other variant I have heard, and I've traveled extensively in the South. It was as far from my eastern Virginia accent as a Scottish brogue.

Enjoyed the podcast, too. Even though I have no interest in brewing my own beer--my preferred tipple speaks Gaelic--it gave me a better understanding of the discussions of home-brewing that one is so likely to encounter these days.

Afterthought: My trick for spotting a fake Southern accent: Using "you all" as a singular pronoun. Everyone knows "you all" is plural.

Would love to hear the full recoring

I'd love to hear the full recording. I would be of interest to hackers.

I am thinking about making the whole thing available, but I want to do a new recording in Audacity of the original. I still have the original tape, but I need to get a new cassette player in order to play it. Hopefully, I'll get this done relatively soon.
