Why thank you, I'm going to do some strawberry this weekend.



I'm not sure that warriors slain in battle would spend eternity drinking strawberry wine but it is very yummy.

we don't wash the jam boiler out after making strawberry jam and go straight on to wine crush.

My wife likes it for the colour as much as the flavour I think.

I'm more a red guy (in booze as in politics Wink)

Red equals Republican on this side of the pond.  Always struck me as odd.

Oooh yeah.... forgot that.

Speaking of mead I just found out some good news and dropped my June=no booze thing for the afternoon.

Starting with a honey ale..... I shall report.

it may go quiet this end or it may get even incoherenter than usual. Grin

Instead of the strawberry I started some pomegrante mead.

I'm starting to question if I have the patience for mead, 14gallons going now.

Patience, shmatience, if you have 14 gallons the last couple will be mature(ish) before you get to them.

I had the honey ale a couple of nights ago, very nice but a one-off, am back on the dry June, difficult but I feel smug.

Have you tried isinglass?

Or pour it away, buy some cheap wine!

Strawberries here are incredible this year. Best weather imaginable.

Working on the gooseberry too.

Best hobby ever?

First batch is clearing now, I made a lot of mistakes with the first batch but lessons learned.

Started a mixed berry mead yesterday 21july, berries where frozen so the ferment hasn't kicked off yet. I threw them in the blender instead of chopping them. Racking and filtering will probably be a pain but I'll see.

It's a hobby, haven't really gotten to enjoy the fruits of my labor yet.
