I'm not looking for help (but maybe I should be), I am just sharing an amusing story about how stupid I can be.
So my strawberry rhubarb mead, what I am calling my summer pie mead, is coming along great. Yesterday I racked off the lees, remove the rhubarb that has fallen, then I planned to rerack ontop of some more strawberries. I syphoned into my primary with some campden tablet to prevent oxydation, then removed the rhubarb and cleaned my carboy. However I couldn't find my grain bag. So I decided to imprivise.
I got a peice of cheese cloth and I dumped the strawberries in. I tied everything up quite nicely and I even took a moment to be impressed with how great my improvised grain bag looked.
I was ready to put everything into my carboy when I saw a potential setback. I now had a grain bag of strawberries a little smaller then a soccer ball, and an opening smaller then a golfball...
Well thankfully with a little more looking I got a grain bag and problem solved. But I thought you could all do with a laugh, so I am sharing!
Have a good night everyone!
