Drunk and productive day (with pics)

Post by Badfellow »

It started this morning as being fueled by breakfast wine on an empty stomach and turned into an all day drinking project. The project itself concerned ensuring ample stockpiles of good drink to carry our household through the looming winter. Now I suppose you'll be wanting photographic evidence of whole orgy, so here it is with a minimum of blathering. The pictures speak for themselves.

Some of these beauties will end up going into the Holiday Booze Exchange. Make your reservations now.

Diamonds in the rough. Here are a few fermenters filled with blueberry wine, shiraz, cider, strawberry wine and a few other oddities. They await filtration, and in some cases blending. It's peculiar how when sometimes two mediocre wines are blended they produce a superior profile. I am gradually learning that blending is an intricate art.

Each fermenter gets a tag stating it's name, rank and serial number. This is Earl II, a cider from 2006.

Yours truly overseeing the filtering process.

The finished product, a brilliently clear bottle of Blueberry Shiraz 2006. Alcohol by volume 14%. We bottled 3 cases of this variety.

Image

It's a little after 6:00 PM now and the bottling line has quieted down for the evening. In all, we added 9 cases to the arsenal. Time to kick up my feet and lay heavy into the stash.

That blueberry shiraz looks delicious. How is it that I haven't been to your house yet? And why weren't you in MA?

If I had a nickel for every time I drank too much, I'd buy another case.

Thank you, friends, for further encouraging my neurotic hobby into a full blown psychosis. And while it is illegal to sell homebrew, the law does not forbid barter and gifting.

Yes, it does. I'm not quite sure. And I ended up going to a hellishly lame wedding reception instead.

Bottles are set aside for you and Brian. I'm having a major endrunkening session in the first week of November to commemorate my cloned-on date. The Mankato contingent should plan on attending.

Oh lawdy, lawdy, am I drunk.

In all fairness, I must state that behind every batch is a woman. Her name is sweet. Count yourself fortunate enough in a thousand wild dreams to have such a soul-mate she-devil who absorbs your every loving, fermenting passion. And who tries to out-ferment you at every turn. Hahaha! Lovin' life tonight!
