Little ole wine maker me!
Pray for me. ahh they are so cute, I love those little angels.
I got me two batches of my Christmas wine brewing in the basement of my "speakeasy."
Today was day 8, and (my boy's) had to be transferred from the pail to the carboy (large glass container.) This is my special Christmas batch, and I felt something special needed to happen, so I named them. Normally it's batch 1 and batch 2, but in the spirit of the season, I have renamed them. It's a German Reisling, so I thought it would only be appropriate to include their heritage in the naming. Batch 1, is now "Long John Schlong" and batch 2 is "Heinekin Schweinekin." I'm thinking "Heinekin Schweinekin" will be my favorite, because "Long John Schlong" looked a little cloudy. And he came up a little short..heh. Can't trust those German wines. They have another process to go through, but I think I can get them ready for Kris Kringle.
If you are ever in the neighbourhood, just pop in for a drink or two. But, there is a secret code, after all this is a "speakeasy" and we don't want no cops busting up my operation. Knock first!!
This batch will be a little young, as I am only giving them about two weeks to reach maturity, I may have to use dusty bottles to fool my guests. As for me, I don't give a crap. Wine is whine.
