Raspberry Wine II

August 1st, 2012 by Nate


Time for another batch of raspberry wine. We have been picking raspberries and storing them in the freezer, and I’m finally getting around to making wine today. I am going to try and make the same recipe I did for my very first batch of raspberry wine, which turned out great. I will simply be scaling it up to 5 gallons.

White House Honey Ale

June 6th, 2012 by Brian


While I do not have a recipe for this, I thought it was interesting. Apparently, Obama is the first president to have brewing going on at the White House. The beers they make are often served to guests, like Medal of Honor Recipient, Dakota Meyer (right).

Thank you, President Obama, for taking home-brewing to the White House and representing the 700,000 or so of us that are making our own brews. It would be pretty cool to see what recipes they use, but I suppose that is probably a state secret.

For the Wikipedia article click here.

They’ve decided to release the receipt after all. Might have to try this.
