Just a couple of comments.

On Aluminum, I have also heard all the reservations and warnings.
Recently however, I was able to attend an Advanced Homebrewing seminar
at University of California at Davis. The professor running the brewing
department of the school said that the Aluminum issue had been looked
into thoroughly. Aluminum pots, and even adding aluminum salts to the
brew had no noticeable effect on the quality of the beer. However, he
did say that you get what you pay for, and an aluminum pot wouldn't last
as long as a stainless one, and would require more cleaning...

As for honeymoon, my Webster's (not all Webster's being alike) indicates
that it's a transliteration of the Old Norse for "hjunottsmanathr"
(diacritical marks not included) literally of "wedding night month". It
will be interesting to see what other etymologies are identified.
