long awaited update

So it's almost a year since I even touched my brewings. I moved over summer and I could just never motivate myself to scrape all the tools from their various places in the shed.

Bottled two things:

1070 and 19%
Syrupy sweet and heavy. I added a little oak extract to give it something interesting.

Rock and Roll
1020 and 17%
Initially confused by the taste, but it's spiced mead. Sweet ish but not nearly as syrupy
This is 11 months old and was never racked, so there was a thick layer of sludge. Not my most strategic move ever, because that made it a pain to bottle nicely.
Got 6 good bottles and a bottle of sludge I added bentonite to in the hope I might rack off some good stuff later.
