Man,If I ever meet you, I'll bring you some of my mead. It's fruit mead (melomel), but I make a fair bit of it. Right now I'm depleted from supplying a wedding, but I'm hoping to get another 6 gallon carboy going here in the next month or two.It's a good, fun hobby and will be useful once the economy really crashes hard. Plus it makes real cheap Christmas presents.WIII
It's a good, fun hobby and will be useful once the economy really crashes hard. Plus it makes real cheap Christmas presents.Sounds good! Where do you live?
Nashville :-)Do you ever come out this way? WIII
We were just there recently for the SCV Convention where Dixie came out, then visiting the wife of an old friend from Virginia before seeing Oleg Volk who is coming here for Thanksgiving. Don't know when we'll get back there though.
The pear wine I brewed this summer is maturing nicely. I have 2 1/2 gal of it. I also made a gallon batch of wild Texas plum wine. It is a rough bitch as it is only a couple of months old. The recipe said to let it a 2 or 3 yrs.I got a source on some wild muscadine vines to plan and I am trying to work a trade deal for a couple of bee hives from a local beekeeper. Cheap mead material if I can.
Cheap mead material if I can.For sure.
I'm brewing beer using LME and the All-grain Boil in a Bag method. That is going very well I'f I say so myself. But this is so easy I'm starting a small batch of the mead today.

I've a bucket of ingredients for beer that must be brewed when I return. Brewed, bottled, and ready for Christmas!
Let me know when ready.......:)
