Looks very professional. I'm a huge fan of the frost glass.

I wanted to go to that fest. Good luck.

I did not. I did a brew with my friend, who also let me know that rohan meadery isn't that far away. We are planning on doing a road trip there and then to Austin, maybe go the jester king and some breweries out there.

Just racked 10 gallons of a basic traditional into secondaries today. Split it up into about 2.5 gallon batches and racked 3 of the 4 batches onto fruit. In order of appearance in pic: plain (no fruit), pineapple, sapote, strawberry.

Funk,
What kind of bottles are those? Am I blind, or are those not the standard 750s? Very pretty btw.
