  • I've been scrubbing buckets with my father since I was 8, and eventually developed my own interest in it. After I turned 21, I had a job in a produce department, where I got plenty of free fruits to ferment with. This lead me from ale making to mead/melomel making. rnrnWith mead books and resources so limited, I studied winemaking and applied what I could to mead. Eventually, this paid off, as I was offered a job as an winery assistant and assistant vintner at a local winery.rnrnCurrently, I have about 300 gallons of home alcohol production under my belt.
