I started on cider batch 1
Please leave a message, you will have to login with the twitter, and I might have to delete you if you are too spammy.
Right now we are going our for a walk, it is the National Trust walking festival over at the White Cliffs. Not sure exactly what to expect, except a four mile round trip to the lighthouse and back. We can't take the car or the buggy there, so I expect I will be carrying Harry for a good three and a half miles along the cliffs. And I have a cold now.

UPDATE: I get what you are saying now, not that my home brew will be filthy like cough mixture, but that I should just buy cough mixture and drink that instead of going to the effort of brewing my own. So far it would work out cheaper, but now I've started batch two my total costs bring the cider down to less than two pounds per pint. By the time I make the next 4.5 litre demijohn it'll be more like one fifty pound per pint. If I'm lucky enough to get a five gallon pressure barrel for christmas it will go down to 84 pence on the next batch, though if I factor the cost of the barrel in it will be 1.30. Even though I will get the barrel for free for christmas I still have the "opportunity cost", I could have got more socks and jumpers instead.
Not sure that is exactly the barrel I need for cider, but I will investigate and put the idea out there to our "secret santa" group.
Extrapolating further, if I can make an infinite amount of cider I think it will become free.
