Your Questions About Drinking Made Easy

Thomas asks…

How do I make home made wine the simple easy way, to kill the yeast and make it safe?

Give me a detailed answer; on anything, but spacifically on how to make it clean and ready to drink.

eric answers:

Generally the yeast will die off once its consumed all the sugar

if you want to make the wine a little sweeter, so some of the sugar is left behind, most brewers use capden, which kills off the yeast prematurely.

Its safe at any time, since the yeast is actually safe to consume, and actually good for you.

Wine brewers will generally let the wine stand in a secondary brewing session, which will let the dead yeast settle, letting the ending result wine be more clear.

Lizzie asks…

I want a drinking horn designed- not easy to find someone who can do this in the UK!?

I have a cow horn (yes, that’s right- a horn from a cow) and I want to have it rimmed with metal, also at the tip, with some fancy celtic designs. Basically, I want to commission a celtic/viking style drinking horn to be made out of the horn I already have.
I have looked about online and finding someone who can do this for me here in the UK is not easy. I contacted one person who designs drinking horns but he does not work in metal- only in leather!
Can anyone help please?

eric answers:

Go to a jewelry shop,someone who makes rings they can hand form the Metal around the horn

Donald asks…

Is drinking chicken broth good for you?

I recently had the flu and so I made chicken broth and drank it. It is easy to make.

I go to school online, and sometimes I get soo involved and forget about eating. I was just wondering if I made chicken broth and drank it often… well, is it good for you or not? Would it be unhealthy, make me gain/loose weight? etc.


eric answers:

Well it is loaded with salt and there really isn’t any nutrional value so it is not a good idea to drink it too much. It will bloat you as well.

Sharon asks…

Would you stop drinking if your family was going to leave you?

My wife has left me and took my kids because she told me if I didn’t stop drinking it was over. I basically told her that was an easy decision. Drinking is my life. I drank heavily before her and before the kids. Who is she to give me that ultimatum years later? As I open a brand new bottle of scotch I know I made the right decision. Any one else have this happen to them?

eric answers:

What a f*cking idiot. If your drinking has gotten so bad that you would rather keep drinking than get help you deserve what is in store for you. Alcoholism is a terrible way to die – all alone. It is a progressive disease that cannot be cured, but it can be controlled. The only problem is the alcoholic has to want help. And since you don’t i just hope you harm others like you have your family. And i hope you are a smart enough drunk not to drive and kill someone

who is she to give you that ultimatum – she is a woman who loved you enough to put up with it when she would have been better off if she had never met you

anyone have this happen to them – yes, and i just told you how most of them turned out. They died drunk and alone if the were lucky, and in a horrible car wreck if they weren’t

Lisa asks…

Did drinking make you sick while pregnant?

Here in the last few days, drinking has made me nauseous (not vomiting, just queasy). It doesn’t matter what I drink: water, tea, milk… It all makes me queasy.
Of course I know it’s important to stay hydrated so I’m still forcing it down…
Just wonder why this is and how you handled it.
Is there anything I can drink that might be easier going down?

eric answers:

I was the same way in the beginning and still now in my third trimester when it comes to drinking liquids. I usually sip whatever it is I am drinking instead of taking big gulps and I always eat something when I am drinking to help keep it down. In the beginning I drank ginger ale it helped to soothe my stomach a little. Good luck!
