opened a bottle of the latest rhubarb Friday night , very nice although a little dry but acceptable . Saturday I fancied a whisky and ginger ale , but noticed there was a small bit of last Christmas's De Kuyper blue curacao , her indoors said she would have that . I couldn't quite remember how we usually have this , so I put the curacao in a whisky glass , with ice , and topped it right up with Malibu coconut rum . She said it was much much too much , so I poured half into another glass and then remembered we used to have this with coconut milk . The only coconut milk had been in the cupboard for ages and despite a lot of stirring was a bit lumpy but anyway we both drank it , was OK but now I was in a sulk because I wished I'd had a whisky . Not the Lafroaig , I'm saving that for just me . Last night , Bells with ice and Coke ( yes yes I know but I like it ) .
    Regarding the rhubarb , current one seems fine all things considered , the previous one was the one I posted about adding some pure red wine juice to give a rose colour - this was a mistake - the rhubarb was ready to bottle although not stabilised , it didn't seem to re-ferment , but dropped a lot of sediment so now I've got 27 bottles all of which will need to be decanted before drinking . If I ever do that again I think I will add some red which I know is fermented out and clear .
The more recent one is like a medium dry Pinot Grigio and clear as tapwater .
    Two x four gallons of rhubarb is all I made this year . I will try one of my five year old Elderberries over Christmas .

Seasons greeting to all .
Steve

As above but eldest lad gave me a bottle of "Keynvor" spiced honey rum, made down the road near the beach, bloomin' 'ansome! Wink

In between working my way through 25 litres of IPA the odd can of Kronenbourg, picked up a can of Danish Faxe lager @ 10%, could be interesting. Cheesy

The Faxe lager was interesting, slight hint of acetone but a decent body and flavour, just too strong for enjoyment so at least I tried it. Wink

Kronenbourg. Cool

Always Gin. Usually but not always a different Gin, then probably red wine. Sometimes preceded by real ale if I am actually thirsty.

I have discovered it is best not to mix my drinks, they all need to be alcoholic. Preferably with some element of Vit C or one of my 5 a day, usually fruit. With the exception of olives, silver skin onions, cocktail beetroot or certain herbs added to, yes your right, Gin.

So, in short Gin.

Regards WelshGin.

WelshGin, Sir! Having perused your first post on this site I am to be quite frank amazed at your perspicacity in ensuring there is at least some nutritional value involved in your drinking habits.... (wait for it)

You are going to fit in around here like a dozen pints with chasers at a P*ss Up. Grin Grin Grin

Welcome to the mad house. Wink

I imagine none of us have a 'proof of sanity' cert.

You have a made house? Same here. My most restful situ is in a bucket with the rest of the frogs, at least fluids are not wasted.

Also enjoying some planishing to produce my copper botanicals basket, all very therapeutic.

Bless you all

Not today, but yesterday it was a "Festbeer" from Lidl. Comes out during their Alpine week I believe, a rather sweet malty bitter in a can, very little carbonation which is how I like it.

At least it comes in a decent sized can, sometimes a "free" glass... Roll Eyes

Hazy Jane from Brewdog here, also low condition but in a month I hope to have ready a few gallons of "Scottish Heavy" Wink

Last night and tonight it will be 2011 Banana wine. Sadly the corks knackered and went in, but managed to filter out the debris.

Due to warm weather my "Heavy" is ready to drink, it's not got much condition on it but that's fine by me. Wink

Beaverdale Barolo, certainly haven't found anything to beat this red wine kit. Without trying the more expensive kits anyway  Smiley
