You Make Your Own Wine and Mead? Dandelion Day

Today I bottled up my Dandelion Mead and Dandelion Wine that I made in August. Hopefully that will get rid of these darn fruitbflies! It is ridiculous how crazy they are for the stuff, they would slip through the holes on the top of my airlock and dive into the vodka and die a drunken death after swimming and swimming to get to the wine or mead. I had to change the airlocks every few weeks because they were filled with bodies of fruit flies. Nobody made it into the fine liquor though. I’ve got small samples in of each in the fridge to try later. Last time I tried them, they were still pretty hot with fusel alcohols, I expect some improvement but I bet they need a lot more time, like maybe next August or the following summer.

From flowers to wine and mead
