The maple I put together in 2011, bottled up the other day... I'll take a picture when I pour some into a glass and post that too. Smell was unreal when bottling it.

So when are you bringing over the b/p mead? I think my JAOM is almost done.
Its the failed agave mead left overs from earlier. I am hoping that the extra sugar in there will super charge the yeast and eat the agave. It not much honey in there. I might add more too it.

Plan a day and i can bring over some different stuff including the mead.

Yup... All I've been using for my meads so far. Thinking about getting some clear bottles for the next batches to be done. I have a batch of traditional that I might use the rest of my synthetic corks on. Probably give them a hot wax dip too. That would be funny with Brazilian honey.

I know I should not lust after another meadmakers mead, but you kinda want to stroke it like it is a nylon on a great leg.

Reminds me of the Leg Lamp from the Christmas Story flick. That should be starting up soon.

Aye, it'd DEAD SEXY!!!

I decided to use the flat black shrink covers on the maple batch. Needed something to help keep them separate from my other batches. Need to pick up a small (cheap) pot to melt more wax in. Planning on using some gooooold wax on a batch (or two) when they're ready...

Haha that's all that is left of each. I wanted it rounded nice. The leftovers I gave to people to try and everyone seemed to like them. Also they were only gallon batches and the bottles are 750ml.
