What have you made for Christmas?
« on: December 20, 2020, 21:06 »
No wine made here, but I have some quality infused spirits all made with produce I have grown.  Pink currant white rum, gooseberry and loganberry vodkas and quince brandy. 

They wonít all be opened on the day but it feels good to have a selection to choose from  :)

Mine are mainly gins,cherry,raspberry, elderflower, but I made some cassis which was very drinkable when I taste tested it when bottling  hic  :mad:, Iíve also made gooseberry vinegar, which is rather pungent. Iíve also got various jams,chutneys & jellies.

Fourteen gallons of our fave tipple, 'Christleton', (elderberries, cider etc) and this year, a pound or two of splodged damsons, given to us by a lovely friend!

The two 7 gal containers are going hell-for-leather as we speak, because I've started using a turbo yeast, which sounds extravagent, but does the job quickly, cleanly and has all the nutrients as well, so is a good deal...

Oh yus, I also did some work on an old smoker's stand we'd picked up from my folks' house twenty-five years ago! I'd also got hold of an oak lamp, from an uncle's home, but we never really used it so hey-presto, the top came off the smoker's stand, the bottom came off the lamp, and now I can sit in a chair with a lowered standard lamp, when JRT sits in my place, and I have to move...

never made cider before but.......
