They'll be no forcing. If I make it through my current crisis I plan to drink myself into a coma.

Bottling brew #2 now.

I think I have a hit with this one. It's sweet and lovely right now! Can't wait for it to get a kick after a week in the bottles.

Were one of your exploding bottles the one I gave you? I ask because I have another one for you.

I'm thinking I might use your bottles to make weird enamel-eating sodas.

I've now decided that the second batch is the better one... And (this is interesting), it's really good when I let it go flat. It took me a week to work through a liter bottle because I don't actually drink as much as the Nacho persona claims. So the bottle started to go just slightly flat instead of the usual super carbonated (three bottles have now exploded). Slightly flat on batch 2 is delicious. And clear. It's almost dead-on Sam Adams in color and taste.

This, then, means I fucked up something with the yeast or something...

I have now cleared enough bottles to start on batch three... Though a friend demands that I come brew with him. So...I might do that, then try a third batch.

Once I master these kits (i.e. other people can drink the results and not hit me with the bottles), I really want to move on to the hardcore crazy brewing stuff where I roast and toast and knead and filter and spend, you know, eight hours in alchemy labs.

And then I'm gonna drink myself to death.

While cleaning out the fridge yesterday Missus RC and I found a covered pitcher with a few strawberries swimming in some wine. Since neither one of us could remember the event it was made for (a monthly dinner?), it was decided we should toss it out. I opened the pitcher expecting it to smell rank, and what I got was the smell of cheap (but not necessarily bad) beer. I can only assume the strawberries had begun to ferment.

We still threw the mixture out, but it got me thinking about fermentation and beer and just exactly what we had unknowingly begun to cook up. I'm glad Nacho wasn't here because he probably would have made me drink it.

Actually, no. That wouldn't have been worth the risk! Unless we had already been drinking...

Strawberry beer....
