    ABOUT ME

  • British Columbia
  • I started brewing in September of 2008. The event that got me started was when I was helping a non-drinking church member move, and in their garage there was a 6 gallon glass carboy. They thought it was a glass water bottle for a water cooler, or something, and said that I could have it if I wanted it! The rest is history...
  • Mead & Beer, and more Mead & Beer!

    I am not working with any themes, just mead. Thalassiomel is not a common type of mead that is
    made so I thought I would try it. I am also planning on making a capsicumel this fall. Most

    hoping for a honey roasted peanut flavor. The small sample that I had tasted like sea water
    with honey in ...

    I opened a bottle last night... needs to age a bit longer. With that said, it has a slight
    cola taste to it. There are a few things that I will do differently with my next batch.1. I
