Save money brew
beer in your own home
By JENNIFER FROST
Beer. It's an understatement
to call it a favorite of the
UNC college crowd.
Wouldn't it be great if the
golden brew could be made in
your own home?
Brewing beer at home is a
cheaper way to drink. According
to Leigh Beadle, owner of Beer
Homebrewing Equipment and
Supplies in Carrboro, home
brewed beer costs roughly 10
cents a bottle, which makes it at
least 10 times cheaper than com
Besides the low cost. Beadle
says home brew tastes better and
gives people the satisfaction of
making the brew themselves.
"The taste can be very sim
ilar," said Earl Nelson, manager
of Beer Homebrewing Equip
ment and Supplies. "But in
general the beer people drink
out of a bottle, a can or on tap is
stale. Home brew is fresh.
"You can put more of the
good things in it like hops or
malt. So at little cost you can
have a rich-tasting European
beer or a light American beer,"
"You can taylor it to your
own tastes instead of having a
brewery dictating them,'" Beadle
According to Beadle, interest
in home brewing grew during
the depression when it was ille
gal to make beer. "That's when
home brewing got its bad repu
tation for being cidery and
Since that time, techniques
and equipment have improved.
Home brewing is popular on an
international basis. In areas such
as Canada and Europe it is
almost a tradition, and on the
West Coast and in the Midwest
of the United States the demand
for supplies is steadily increas
ing. In the Southeast demand is
not that large, but it is great
enough to have produced the
Triangle Homebrewers League.
The League began a few

Beadle himself is partially
responsible for the popularity of
home brewing. In 1 97 1, he wrote
BREW IT YOURSELF, which
sold 100,000 copies its first year
published. Since then. Nelson
said, there haven't been any new
innovations in home brewing.
Beadle became interested in
home brewing while in the Air
Force. "I tasted some a sergeant
had made and liked it, but
thought it could be done better.
So I tinkered with it until I came
up with a recipe that was better
than most on the market. 1 got
tired of people asking me how to
make it so 1 wrote a book."
Beadle also owns the only
brewery in the world that manu
factures ingredients for home
brewing. "I was buying ingre
dients for home brewing from
England, but I thought it could
be done better. So in 1978 1
started my own brewery."
The product Beadle's brewery
produces is the basis of the
home-brewing process. "We
make malt extract, evaporate the
water so there's a syrup left, and
then we can it. The customer
only adds water, yeast, hops,
and lets it ferment," Beadle said.
Superbrau, the product Bea
dle produces, sells for about five
dollars a can and makes 55 bot
tles or two cases of beer per can.
The process involves buying
the malt syrup or Superbrau,
boiling it and adding sugar,
hops, or more malt, then adding
enough water to make five gal
lons of beer and letting it all
After it's cooled, the mixture
is placed in an airtight vessel. In
the airtight container the beer
ferments for a week; then more
sugar is added and the beer is
siphoned into bottles where it
ages for two to three weeks,
after which it's ready to be
refrigerated and enjoyed. The
entire operation, including
equipment, costs approximately

Chambers played No. 1 singles there
and amassed a record of which
Guinness Books are made, winning
the state singles title twice and the
doubles title four times.
It was obvious Chambers arrived
at UNC amid great expectations. His
freshman year was a fairly successful
one, as the three-time letterman
compiled a 37-13 singles record and
a 32-11 doubles mark. But his
freshman successes were a mere
prelude to his fantastic sophomore
season. Chambers avoided the
second-year jinx by posting a 41-14,
30-13 sophomore record and
advancing to the NCAA round of
16, where he lost to eventual runner
, up, George Bezency of Georgia.

plans exist to construct 1 6-17 new
spaces behind Fetzer Gym, he said.
The University is also considering
construction of an access road
ponnecting Manning Drive to a
proposed parking deck behind
Craige Residence Hall.

lames (where the courts now stand)
vould only serve as an interim

was also named UNC's first All
America choice in nine years, suc
ceeding former great Billy Brock, to
culminate a brilliant second season.
After winning the No. 2 ACC
singles title in 1985, Chambers had
a somewhat disappointing junior
season which saw him go 25-18, 28
8. But this past fall Chambers stood
up to all advance billings, going 12
3 in singles and teaming with Eddie
Stewart to post a phenomenal 17
1 fall doubles record. The pair also
won the Southern Intercollegiate
Championships, the first UNC
victory there in 1 1 years.
This spring saw Chambers start
out 2-6, and many UNC tennis
supporters were wondering what was
wrong. Bad weather and lack of
playing were the answer, according
to head coach Allen Morris. "Jeff
had a bad start and he needs to play
a lot to keep his game in shape,"
Morris said. "The ice and snow kept
us out of practice for a week and
then we had to go to Texas."
The Texas trip was not a memor
able one for Chambers. He lost to
Texas' Royce Deppe in straight sets,
6-2, 6-2. Since that crushing defeat,
Chambers has been able to play often
and play well, posting a 17-1 mark
and reminding many of the form that
saw him capture the St. Petersburg's
Amateur Athlete of the Year in 1982.
Chambers, lithe at 6-2, 165
pounds, is tri-captain along with
doubles partner Eddie Stewart and
Mark DeMattheis. But it is
Chambers who is looked upon as the
team leader. Team co-manager Mike
Fitzsimmons said he felt Chambers
was the team's leader as well as a
pretty fair tennis player. "I feel Jeff
is a great player and he treats

that hasn't been fully developed yet."
Kelly Clark, Residence Hall Asso
ciation president, said Wednesday
that the University keeps pushing
students farther south.
"Pretty soon it (the University)
will push students so far south that
the only reason they will come to
the main part of campus will be to
go to classes," Clark said.
He said the most important prob
lem was that key student leaders were
not been properly informed about

have come back next fall to find two
new tennis courts at "Cobb, and a

everyone equally," Fitzsimmons
said. "Jeff will always play with
everybody, whether he's our No. 3
or No. 12 guy."
Coach Morris shared Fitzsim
mons' sentiments. "Jeffs been a
strong member of the team. A good
leader, the guys all respect him," he
said. "Off court, he's married and a
bit shy and we don't see him a lot.
But the guys all like him and I do
Chambers takes all this casually,
saying he just tries to lead by
example. The psychology major says
he would like to try his hand at
professional tennis after he graduates
this spring. "I feel confident that 111
be successful in the pros and con
tinue to improve."
The professional tour is definitely
within Chambers' reach although
coach Morris feels there are parts
of his game still needing refinement.
"I think his strokes are strong and
his competitiveness, he's the most
competitive guy IVe ever had,"
Morris said with a laugh. "Even in
practice the kid hates to lose. But
hell do well as a pro. His serve and
volley are his only real weak points,
but they are constantly improving."
Chambers, who wed UNC dis
tance runner Karol Dorsett in 1984,
will be sorely missed next season. But
next season is a long way off, with
the ACC Tournament coming up
this weekend and a possible NCAA
berth. Chambers seems primed and
