A Long Expected Blog

Omg so sorry blog, I've neglected you!

There's a reason for that. This is a wine blog and while the wine sits there's not much to write about.

I've bottled up the mead. I guess I could write about that. I used a very crude method of slowly pouring it off into a spouted 2-cup measuring cup and then poured it into the bottle via funnel. Corking was fun. I bought an Argentinian double-lever corker. Worked slick.

Being the cheapskate that I am, I used recycled beer bottles. Washing them in the dishwasher removes most of the labels (though I'm not sure how much the dishwasher liked that). Then I boiled them.

Mead's done and will sit til at least october (except the one partial that I think I'll consume this evening while I game:).

Not much of a picture, but here's my first lot of bottled nectar:D I need to make some fun labels.

I'll be bottling the cranberry wine shortly.

  1. Yay! at least if you clog your dishwasher up with labels you can make dad fix it and not be embarrassed when you have to call the fix it guy over for the second time because you clogged your dishwasher up with food :(. Also you really should print up some awesome labels, I'll take a pretty picture for you and you can use it. Too bad you have to let it sit so long I want to try it!
