Aaron and I and his co-worker Chris have been brewing! Chris makes various neato beers, and Aaron and I are jumping on the opportunity to have someone help us along as we get into a new and exciting hobby. A tasty, tasty hobby.
Our first batch of Pear Mead came out rather well!
We have bottles on reserve to be opened in 1, 2, 3, 5, and 10 years.
And we’ve got a couple of smaller experiments happening; a root beer, and a test for a larger Apple Cizer. Both are bubbling away nicely.
Today I go get a large primary fermenter bucket for large projects.
And perhaps also today, I want to start a test for a pumpkin wine.
In other news, I’ve been emailing the various productions that are starting filming in the next few weeks around Vancouver.
I got my Traffic Control Person certification, and I hear PAs with a flagger’s ticket are pretty useful.
In still other news, I was on the front page of Reddit last week for my Minecraft project, a Hardcore Superflat world.
Thread (with link to album) here.
Anyway, that’s all for now.
Thanks for reading.

I have not yet made mead. Does it need to be protected from light like beer does?

I don’t think so. We’ve had it in a glass carboy and given it no regard to light exposure; seems not to be an issue with this delicious drink! Cheers!
