  • Way back at the dawn of history, my future wife and I were in a Dillard's department store filling out our wedding registry. I saw a 6 gallon Mr. Beer homebrew kit. She absolutely did NOT want Mr. Beer on our registry, but relented after I pointed out that of the 198 items on our registry, I had picked out exactly zero.rnrnThe next day, that Mr. Beer kit was waiting for me when I got home. :-)

    I know what all of these things are individually, but can't fathom how they work together.What

    I planted four back in January--one Arkansas Black, one Royal Limbertwig and two Blanco
    crabapples. The two crabs haven't grown much, but they're reputed to be slow growers. The other
    two (both barero...

    Cysers may be still or sparkling, drinkable chilled or at room temperature. Whichever way you
    prefer. Cyser's easy that way. :-)I use a 6 gallon Mr. Beer as my primary (don't even think

    writeup from 20...

    bean ice wine (tea) mead. Demi-sweet, slightly spicy and smooth. Very drinkable, but would be
    improved with a touch more tannin and acid. Easily my best mead ever. Alas, only two bottles

    I made a smoked jalapeno braggot a number of years ago, using smoked malt picked up at Home
    Brew Party in San Antonio. A word of caution--just a little bit of smoked malt goes a long way.

    Anyone going to the 2015 Texas Mead Fest? It's in Gruene this year, just a five minute drive

    Argh! Forgot to check back in here before I left, if so I'd have known to look for folks!
    Overall, the event was far more successful than the organizers expected or planned for--they
    were pretty overw...

    Rohan Meadery in La Grange is hosting the Inaugural Texas Mead Fest. They're also having a mead
    contest, which intrigues me, as I'd appreciate some professional feedback on my efforts. Any
    Texans plan...
