Brew All The Things!

Because brewing is patriotic (right?), this weekend I:

  • Bottled four batches of mead
  • Started a batch of strawberry wine

  • Made a case of hippocras (sweetened, spiced wine)
  • Began some cyser (fermented apple cider with honey)
  • Kicked off a saison (Belgian farmhouse beer)
  • Tested out an utterly bizarre 14th Century recipe for bochet (aka mead for sick people)
