Sunkissed Methgelin



It took 6 filters to get it this clear but it’s worth it I think, the spiced flavour is there still.

2 bottles, 1 Methegelin , 1 Mead delivered to Fizzgig for the first tasting , fingers crossed.

Kiwi Spinach Wine

I thought I’d experiment with the glut of my Native Kiwi Spinach plants

2 lb Spinach
3 lb Sugar
1 Orange [ Zested & Juiced ]
1 Lemon [ Zested & Juiced ]
1 lb Raisins

Boil off the spinach in a gallon of water , strain off the spincah and save for something else later in the day , rather than waste it , dissolve the sugar , and the juices and zest , then add the raisins.

Wait until it cools a bit then add the yeast and stand well back it’s very active.

Let’s see what it tastes like.
