Does anyone know if you get bereavement leave when Twinkies pass away?

Luckily I have a drawer full. They should last about 75 years if I play my cards right.

This is probably a turning point in your weight loss and physical well being isn't it?

How is it even possible that, less than two weeks after Colorado and Washington legalize weed, that Hostess goes out of business?

So the local farmstand seems to have a good price on local raw honey. Any advice on what to do with it? I'm guessing a mead. Never done it and figured I'd give it a try. Since, I've never done it before whats a good classic? I'm thinking one or more of the following: raisins, maple syrup (another place just down the road), cranberries or cherries. I'm not sold on doing a mead. Just figured I'd give it a try.

What would they want for 100 lbs?

You can make a braggot (why I am asking for a price)

as PTN has stated earlier "Beer talk doesn't belong in this thread. Take it outside." so I assume that goes for mead, wine, soda, etc

You forgot blueberry flavored girly drinks.

I got 5lbs for $22. Not that great of a deal as it's similar to NB. However, in the next YuppyTown over it's twice that much from the same apiary. The farm wasn't the direct source of the honey so maybe if you go directly you could get cheaper. It is also just down the road.

Braggot may be the way to go. I think I was half hearted wanting to do a wine kit. I have a couple pounds of Northern Brewer and noble hops that I need to use. I did an awesome Imperial Doppelbock a couple of years ago and I'm sure the final growlers will be done by Christmas.

Maybe I'll do a double brew and blend half of one with maple syrup and the other with the honey to keep the aroma. I'm not a recipe guru so I have to do more research. Maybe find a German variation somewhere. Plus find out if I need to do nutrients. I've read you don't want to boil the honey so blending or adding it at the end of fermentation is what I'll experiment with to keep the flavor/aroma.
