During Prohibition, bootleggers made their own booze by burying grapes underground or catching moonbeams in a jar of water. Make alcohol the easy way with today's Groupon: for $19, you get a complete wine making kit ($39.95 value) from The Purple Foot on 92nd street.
Forty years of fermenting wisdom cement The Purple Foot as Milwaukee's premier emporium for the personal vintner. The introductory kit contains nearly all the equipment—a two-gallon plastic primary fermenter with lid, a one-gallon glass secondary fermenter, an air lock, a straining bag, and more—necessary to brew your own adult fruit juice. Stew three gallons of wine from your choice of fruit (not included); try combining strawberries, raspberries, rhubarb, grapes, or jazzleroot with the provided ingredients according to the provided instructions, and let guests of your next dinner party delight at your new craft, at the hyper-local vintage, and at the unusual colors that emerge when it's mixed with resin.
Fresh fruit, table sugar, and water are not provided.
