The freezer is stuffed to it's figurative gills and I am getting very comfortable with the whole subject.
Alright, I still haven't managed the perfect Naan, nor can I churn out croissants like a pro. But I'll get there, I'm pretty sure of that.
None the less, yesterday I kicked off a starter culture of a different kind, as you can see to the right.
My maternal grandfather was an avid wine-maker, one of my uncles even burned his own moonshine. (Yep, the one I got the poppy seed mill from.) So, there seems to be a certain family tradition to uphold, which at least in this case I am more than willing to oblige.
I've started a batch of cyser, a mix between a mead and a hard cider, as my first attempt. Given a bit of luck, it should be drinkable at this year's summer party.
This is a really exciting new experiment for me, and you can bet I'll keep you posted on the progress.
