OK, so I can't make beer. While I wait for the Money Fairy to drop a load of cash on my doorstep, I might as well have some fun.
I have some yeast nutrient left over from when I made some mead awhile ago. Two pounds of sugar costs about 2 bucks. Two packets of Kool-Aid are 50 cents. A packet of standard yeast is twenty cents. I made some hard lemonade.
There are other flavors. Grape would make, uh, cheap wine?
