In an effort to give me a little time off I am making mead today. By time off I mean I won’t have to transfer anything in a couple weeks. I won’t even have to bottle anything. I love how meads can take a bit of time to do their thing. The mead will be a dry mead that I will be aging on oak. It should finish out around 12%.
Currently I am working on bottles. I have need to clear out a keg to get the brown conditioning. Of course the two cases of empties I am working with right now have labels still. Extra soak time to clean off the label goo.
Looking to the future, I found the agave nectar that I use in the Tequila Sunset. I had thought that it may be lost forever. So now it has made its way back into the brew docket. I also think it is coming time again to brew up the ESB. As always, it seems that my work is never ending.
And now… its time for a pint
