Just downed two bottles of Young's Medium Red, whilst watching Ireland hold Australia to a 20-20 draw. Cheesy 

Now I'm off downstairs to bottle a DJ of Strawberry Ribena, which by my initial tasting from the test jar, is quite promising, for a young-un. Tongue  I'm hoping it will yield an odd EXTRA half bottle! Wink

Either your red wine was not very strong or you can hold your liquor well because after two bottles of my red i would not be racking anything apart from my brain. Wink Grin

This one's still maturing for me.

I'm drinking Munton's gold Dockland Porter - first beer kit I've done and not too bad, but seems to be lacking something.

Great smell, good flavour round the front of the tongue, but each mouthful has an empty space towards the back of the mouth (in terms of taste)  ??? Maybe it'll be better next week  Wink

The Young's Med Red only made an ABV of 9.8%, so it is just pleasant slurping stuff, but the Ribena came off at 13.2%, altho' I did up the ante a wee bit in the recipe.  Wink

Apple wine, made from my own pressed juice and with my own dehydrated apple added to boost the flavour.

Only started on 6/7/09, but I felt the need to check how it was maturing - definitely more fruity + a much darker golden colour than using pure juice.

Half a gallon left to leave the full 12 months before deciding whether to make some more.

Oh dear, my in-laws have dropped in on us at short notice (no jokes, they are great) and Mrs. Mole threw together a Steak & Cooper's Dark Ale pie.

I started with a glass of pale cream sherry (which Mrs. Mole inadvertantly left lying around) followed by 2 glasses of “Super Wurzel” (more sugar than standard, high abv), then shared a really very nice indeed Chilean Shiraz with Father-in-Law.

Shame it's a weekday, w**k again tomorrow, as I feel the evening could yet involve malt whisky.

Grin OK Sean I have tried all sugar fermenting, all light spray malt , and half sugar and half medium spray malt.  I've also tried extra hops but to my taste these are best left out.

However looking through my notes it appears that the favourite with myself and my sons and brothers is made with 500grms medium spray malt and the same with sugar.  This gave an ABV of about 5% +.

Hope this helps  Richard G Grin

ps I barrel first then transfer to bottles as and when needed Grin

Thanks for that Richard, haven't got any medium spray malt so will add to the HB shopping list.

Pint of 4 month old wheat beer, good well it wouldn't be boasting to say I defy anyone to be able to tell it's a kit.

Cheers

Spiced pommegranate - based on Wurzels, but my own tweaking - my first tweak!!!! My second ready for drinking. Fermented dry and de-gassed....OMG Shocked

I made this and it's lovely - gonna work out the alcohol in a moment. Getting ridiculously happy ....could it be the 6th bottle... you know the one....never actually makes it to the bottle...... Grin 

(and yes I know how that reads and no I have not drunk the other 5.... but another one might go tonight!) Shocked

Drink beer when you're thirsty, it's tastier and wetter. A half pint is good but a pint is much better ;0)

I've just opened a bottle of Wurzel's Orange, May '09 vintage, and it's worthy of a £6 price tag anywhere! Tongue Tongue Tongue
