    Re: I am going to go mad! Hydrometer and yeast

    Just brew beer - easier and does not need any fancy equipment - at least not at a basic level.

    Re: Single camping unit

    Maybe an alternative would be the RTT on the back of the bakkie ? That only weighs about 70 or 80 Kg with bedding.

    The disadvantage, again, would be the issue of transport while at a site.
