Just two things on my casual note here:

Bottled plain mead. Reference my other time travel post to find out that there was some batch of plain mead that I started (who knows when), racked (on August 14th), and now have bottled.

Racked one strawberry. Who knows why one and not the other? One was probably still fermenting. At any rate, they will both be bottled SOON IN THE PAST.

I have travelled back in time to give you this post from what I should have done on August 14th. Lots of stuff I did:

Racked 5 o’clock mead. Note: I don’t know when this mead was started, because I stopped being diligent with my note-taking around this point. Anyway, it got racked.

Racked (something) onto blackberries and blueberries to get what I call, “Black and Blue”. Don’t know what the original batch was exactly, though it must have been a plain mead of some kind.

Racked plain mead of some kind.

Racked strawberry meads onto MORE HONEY. They were thin and needed some body, so I racked them onto some more honey. Seems to have worked, I think these two will age into something nice and refreshing. Not as strong/sweet/alcoholic as some of my other meads, but that’s okay. Often people find them too strong at first.

And I have one last note that just says “braggot”. Maybe I tried it and it was delicious? At any rate, it IS delicious and I love it now. Not fizzy bubbly like a beer but it does still get some bubbles and tastes exactly like you would imagine a honey/beer to taste.
