What: INTRO TO HOME BREWING: MEAD AND MORE
When: Feb. 13, 10am Ale/Lambic, 1:30 Local Mead, 3:30 Wild Wine & Prison Hooch
Where: The Hen House – Backyard – 109 SE 4th Place

At 1:30, Michael from Rosie’s Organics will be discussing local honey mead
making and will demonstrate a basic, simple way to create this delicious
home brew.  We will start a 5 gallon batch of mead together.  The first 20
people who register will receive a bottle of this golden goodness in 4-6
weeks time.  Materials fee for mead + ceramic bottle is $4.

We are still looking for an experienced facilitator to offer a
presentation and demonstration on Ale’s and Lambics at 10am.  If you or
someone you know might be interested, please contact Mary.  At 3:30, we
can share our skills and experiences with wild fermented wines using local
fruits and herbs (if someone wants to offer a demo, bring it on! let us
know if you need supplies), and we may have a surprise visit and
demonstration from one of our local experts in highly innovative prison
brewing recipes and techniques.

To register, email holyolks@yahoo.com or call Slande @ 352-870-1870

“Gender is a spectrum. There are people who want to change their bodies in order to more closely resemble how they feel their gender is expressed in this society. Most often they are disappointed with the outcome because it is not their bodies alone that need to be changed but society. paraphrase of Jean Hansen (my mom) from when i was growing up.”
