I was pottering about in the yard today at a lazy old pace. It was pottering in a literal sense because we'd pulled out a heap of Bromilliads that I potted up into six huge pots. I also finally planted out Farina's ArkLiving pot which has become a lettuce garden (you can never have too many greens). Anyway... that was when the "Manor Bug" as I call it struck with full force. I was obsessed to get in touch with Farmer Andy.
Firstly, I bottled up 25 liters of alcoholic cumquate-ade. A little sugar goes in the bottom of each bottle and we should have a nice fizzy brew in a couple of weeks.
Leaving the distillery ... what?.... oh alright then ... the laundry, I spotted that kilo of tomatoes I got on the cheap. A little later, I bottled up 5 jars of sweet chili sauce. This lot has a nice little bite.
I've also been thinking about a plan to test a batch of new spirits. I found a rum yeast that works with molasses and sugar as the base. Well, I have to test that out. Damn.. the fermenter is already full of the last batch. Not to worry, I'll just still that back up so I can make a new batch this week some time.
