Free Beer 3.0

A few months ago, a bunch of students from the IT-University in Copenhagen decided to create their own beer, and after experimenting with a couple of different recipes, they came up with the Vores Øl, an open source, medium strong beer (6% vol) with a deep golden red color.

Now, several months later, a second open source beer was brewed by the same bunch of geeks who created the Vores Øl. Here's how they describe it:

...a traditional, top fermented beer with a very high drinkability factor – defined as the desire to drink another glass or bottle. With heavier beer from Belgium, for example, you’ll drink only one glass which you’ll indulge in. With FREE BEER you’ll want to drink another one – so it’s actually thirst quenching. We also wanted a nice color, and ended up with beautiful, light amber.

I wonder if I could convince my wife of letting me set up a micro-brewery in my basement. I really doubt that she'll be pleased by my project; she hates beer almost as much as I hate mushrooms, and apart from that, she barely drinks at all. While being very convenient when I need a designated driver, this will probably play against me when I'll try to convince her that brewing my own batch of beer will be cheaper then buying it at the local grocery store.
