I have promised myself that come the new year I will start to home brew a little ale and also start to produce my own pear cider. Does anybody know if any shops well home brew stuff? Or am I having to take a trip to singapore??

Singapore for Beer. There are a number of ingredients you cannot buy here (Yeasts for a start)but you can make the cider no problem.

or just make some prison-style hooch: put pineapple juice into a narrow-necked bottle (flagon is best), stopper using cotton balls, add a spoon of sugar and yeast everyday for 1-2 weeks, and there you go ... ready to get plastered.

Um, KuKu? How is it that you know how to make prison-style hooch? Some dark corners of your past we don't know about perhaps?

I don't know about getting yeast and malt extract/grain in Indo (as Dilli had indicated in later post). I have personally helped my hubby brewed a few, IPA and wheat mostly american style. Homebrewing is a big business here in the US, so those ingredients are easy to come by. Singapore may be the closest place to get yeast and others, try Brewerkz, or Archipelago brewery (talked to the Brewerkz brewmaster a few years ago while in S'pore, quite a friendly fellow, bet he can give you some yeast starter). Good luck!
