    Are there any home brewers out there that brew while camping? If so, do you have any good stories/ tips/ recipes. I'm just curious to know how many other brewers are out there-I feel nothing beats a good homebrew with family and friends while sitting around the campfire.

    I've taken homebrew with me. Can't imagine staying in one place long enough to brew it and then drink it all since I always made 5 gallons at a time.

    Funny question.

    I have never made home brews but have had a few that a friend has made. They were very good. I do, however, enjoy micro brews and usually try one or two when I come across them in my travels. And of course there's always the old stand by, Gordon's and Tonic.

    Home brew CAN be the best. How...how...how...would you keep the wort still while on the road??? Now, if you are staying in one spot for a while it would be great to do a little natural stuff with yeast in the air to see what happens to the flavor. Maybe if you can get local honey and make some mead as you need.

    We have a seasonal spot so the camper doesn't move (unless the kids are jumping off of the bunks). My big concern is the maintaining the temperature during fermentation, it will be too hot in the summer. I may try a batch in spring before the warm weather moves in and see how that goes. I live in Ohio so, it'll be cool until at least June. I do like your Mead idea, I think the Amish have an apiary near buy, I'll give that a try.

    RE: Home brew

    I home brew but have never done it while out and about. However I do pack a few bottles up and take'em with me.
