As someon who is old and DOES see the point, I worry about your great aunt. I wonder whether she might be becoming depressed, and hence tempted to give up ? Depression is common in the old, and some blood pressure meds may inadvertently kick it off, too. Maybe spendin some time with her, you may discover more about why she seems to be giving up, unnecessarily.
And to think I started off a home ginger beer industry ! I seem to remember back in my schooldays, it was delicious, but could go somewhat alcoholic if the fermentation went slightly wrong, and could become so fizzy as to occasionally explode the old bottles we'd put it in.
