Too Drunk to Take Advice

Buy the Lite beer, they said. It's cheaper, they said. But I have expensive taste in beer. No money saved here.

I would rather give up drinking beer entirely than save money by buying crappy beer.

In 2015, my first year of pursuing Mustachianism, I resolved to get our household expenses under control. Prior to this we were buying a six-pack every week or two and I cut way down on that and eventually cut it out entirely. I don't actually miss it. Now I might buy one every few months, or I drink beer when friends bought it to share. We feed our friends pretty frequently, so it evens out.

I avoid beer now because I'm trying to get back into shape, but I prefer good beers and can't stand piss (the Lite shit).

If you continue drinking beer, I highly encourage you to brew your own. It isn't all that hard if you are fastidious about sanitizing everything and are able to follow directions, and I believe it can be cost-effective after a few batches (especially if you keep glass bottles, instead of being them). I got even luckier and saw a Groupon deal with a homebrewing store, with whom I was able to buy a starter kit and an Irish stout beer kit.

Now I want to try making wine or hard cider, but I've been lazy.

A five gallon bucket from the donut place, twenty pounds of prunes and a couple packs of Fleischman's yeast, a week and wah-lah!

Do I leave the donut crumbs in? Does it matter what flavor? I loathe beer, but am intrigued by this plum-donut brew.
