Winemaking & Homebrewing

In today's world, self-sufficiency is growing in popularity. Whether it's knitting your own sweaters, raising your own chickens, or canning your own jam, people are re-learning to skills that had been laid aside by the average homemaker with the advent of department stores and supermarkets. Festive libations are no exception!  It's probably too late for you to have home-brewed beer or wine to raise your glass in a New Year's toast this year, but with the help of these items from the library catalog, you could be relaxing in a hammock next summer with a cold one you brewed yourself.
