Bottled a batch of cider tonight, will probably pasteurize it Tuesday/Wednesday/Thursday depending on how it carbs up.

Pasteurizing tonight. After checking carb levels again of course. Wish me luck!

That was a fun meeting last night! Thanks for the cider, Craig, very enjoyable!

Have to say that I'm not sure about the fried ball of corned beef, though

Wasn't paying enough attention during the raffle (Nancy had our tickets) - I saw that Gary won twice, did anyone here win anything? I haven't won a BOSS raffle drawing for at least six months, need to get my mojo back.

Was a great time last night. I didn't win anything either. Didn't buy any raffle tickets though. Glad you liked the cider!
