"Surviving a Zombie Apocalypse is indeed of the utmost importance, and I will always welcome any others tips and ideas on how to more easily survive such events of obvious mayhem. I must now ask what kind of brews are you currently brewing? I have once taken part in actually making a beer once, but I have never tried to brew it at home. Hmmmm I think I may have a good idea.....I wont reveal exactly what it is, But I will say that it has nothing to do with my bad grammar, that it will be capable of making sound, and that it reminds me of something that a moonshiner down in Kentucky would have to pass the time while his distillery was a cooking. However it will be more advanced and unique. And yes beer brewing would be an important skill in the zombie Apocalypse."

I was going to make a sculpture in chocolate for this gift exchange, which I would not inflict on you. BUT, separate from the gift exchange, as a founding member of Team Apocalypto, a Zombie Preparedness Organization or ZPO, if you will, I could trade you a ZAKS for something. www.teamapocalypto.com I have a couple of them around the house, so I could send you one, plus a foam practice head for stabbing. (Of course, I mean what good is a survival kit if you aren't practiced at zombie head-stabbing?) I don't think that I could really create a useful instructable about them, because making one is really just collecting useful zombie survival items together into a kit, not really making anything per se. If you decide you would like to trade, we just started making beer at home, and we could use all the advice and/or useful gizmos you could provide. Incidentally, we have found through our Team Apocalypto membership surveys that beer making is one of the most prized skills in a post-apocalyptic zombie survival scenario.
