Is homebrewing of beer and wine legal in OZ?

AFAIK, it still is in UK.

Was just going to suggest home brew - so simple to make and if you know a guy who already does it it's even easier. Keg is actually simpler than bottling, just not so handy for the beach barbie!

Home brew is legal and you can feed a brew to some pretty high strengths. Illegal to sell it and an absolute no-no for distillation into spirit. (it's also rocket fuel but that's a whole different story!)

Re: $4 for a glass of beer in australia. thieving scumbags
i was talking to a cop about it [distilling] and he said if they recieved a complaint about it they would get you for making it and if you sold it you would be in strife.
but if you keep it quiet what you do in the privacy of your own home is your business.
anything over a 5 litre still is illegal to own.

Ah, but you have to consider the measure that our Australian friend is talking about.

Presumably, in Sweden, you're buying a litre of beer.

In Australia, it may be a "schooner", which is like an egg-cup of beer.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 917535

kitty I think the OP is refering to the informal desert housing that a lot of Ozzie's live in. When it's a 100 + for months in a row it makes good sense to live in a much cooler underground home, with skylights. I've seen them on TV several times as they look quite nice to live in actually.
Zec 12:3 And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.
Psa 9:17 The wicked shall be turned into hell, [and] all the nations that forget God.
Jer 6:2 I have likened the daughter of Zion to a comely and delicate [woman].
STOCK UP NOW. You should have at least 6 months worth of basics for every member of your household. Stay away from crowds when trouble starts, do not forget water storage, tobacco is worth more than gold or silver, and be kind to hungry children.

Ah yes. Kalgoorlie, for example.

Where the mining community lives underground.

I think our OZ friend is referring to something more "quasi-legal", though.

I suspect "cave" is a slang word in his world.

Most Aussies don't live in informal desert housing, you dumbass.
There's one small town called Coober Pedy, in the remote outback. That's not all the Australians in the entire country. lol

Sure aren't right that they charge that much. I didn't realize it had gotten that bad until recently myself. Do most of my drinking at home, in the past mostly to avoid all the idiots.

$4??? That's bloody cheap, mate! Try 5.75 in Canada, here in Vancouver, if you're downtown you pay $7.50 or $8 for a glass of beer, fuckin' wankers. The pub is only for the playoffs now....if you can afford it. MUCH cheaper to drink at home, MUCH. $4, we'd turn cartwheels of happiness if a pint was still $4.

Coober Pedy, of course.

I was wrong about Kalgoorlie.

The opal mines, and subterranean dwellers.

The figure is in USD and based on my last night out. Didn't even get 0.5 liter for this price. To be fair, you can get beers for as little as $10 some places.
