I am excited...

... because I am making crabapple wine! First wine-making effort ever.

Simon of Taurus Rising wine-making fame has very kindly offered tons of advice and tips. He also lent me a book that only uses natural ingredients and does not require trips to speciality shops.

Chopped up crabapples this afternoon, threw them in the fermenter, topped with water, added a little yeast. Now it can do its thing. Thinking of picking more crabapples. I must be crazy! But by golly, this is fun!

Kel, still plenty of crabapples on the trees. Neighbour gnomes would be happy to share with you. Crab fizz sounds nice. :)
