I've heard quite a bit about bartering items during a time of depression or something of the sort. Alcohol has seemed to be a big one that people are interested in. It would be smart to invest in some cheap alcohol now for a later time, I suppose but wouldn't it be even smarter to have the supplies to brew your own beer at home? I haven't really looked into what all it takes but I wanted to get some opinions on my idea from some others. Anybody here know a thing or two about brewing beer at home?
