Default Busy Bee

Had a busy evening last night, with plenty of stuff on the go it can build up if you don't watch it.

Kegged my Boddington's Bitter
Moved My Hob Goblin to Secondary
Racked 20l of white country wine.
Racked 5l of grape (turbo) wine.
Made 5l of carrot wine
Made up a wine Kit of shiraz.

The plus side is all that stuff needs sampling.

I'm impressed with the Boddies considering it's a standard bitter its very nice. It doesn't need ageing really, just carbing.

Sounds good, orfy. I'm curious about the carrot wine. What is that like?

It used to be called carrot whiskey and has quite a following.

I boil up some old chopped carrots. (They carrots make good dog food)
Boil in some sultanas, couple of lemons an orange and a tea bag. Take thhe gravity up to level with sugar. I pitch a teaspoon of yeast nutrient and a teaspoon of wine yeast.

I'll let you know how it is in a few moths.

Wait...carrot wine? Is this the unfortunate result of some kind of late-night drunken barroom bet? Usually, when I think of things to ferment, I'm looking for stuff with some, uh, sugar in them. Seriously, dude, what drove you to make "wine" from carrots?

It's nice. Second only I believe to parsnip wine.
Starch turns to sugar turns to hangover.

Your original post reminded me that I'm out of bitter. Now I've something to brew next week.
