    Here's an update on the Mezza Luna. I have opened several bottles now during the Holidays and
    given several away. This is a very nice semi-sweet white wine, and it is also sparkling. It's a
    very small...

    I should have noted also to boil 5 minutes after the last tip addition.

    I just made a pretty good spruce tip ale. I picked the spruce tips from my backyard when they
    were very young and froze them until I was ready to brew. Boil 1 1/2 gallons water.Add 1 oz of
    tips, 1/2 o...

    This version came out pretty good. It is rich tasting. The GI is less prominent though - a
    sourness that seems to complement the fruitiness of the cascade hops I used. The sour
    bitterness is also some...

    After refrigerating some, I like this Ground Ivy Ale better. It's not bad for summer.

    I made about 5 cups of tea with a collander full of fresh ground ivy - probably about 1/2
    gallon and added it to the wort to make a 2-gallon batch. The beer is kind of thin. The OG was
    only 1.040, but...

    I used 1/4 cup sugar per gallon, and less than 1 tbsp salt per gallon. I have to say though,
    the unsweetened, unsalted wine is so delicious I still can't believe it. It has a subtle
    sweetness to it th...

    The ground ivy is beginning to grow like crazy here in Pennsylvania. I tried making a ground
    ivy ale last year and something went seriously wrong. It tasted awful. Very sour. I gathered
    the ground ivy...

    I don't know what Belgian Strong Malt is either. That was the label on the bag. I threw the bag
    away after I made my notes, so I can't even look at it again now. It looked light in color,
    like some ca...
