So, sampling the homebrew.
Tastes fine, but the priming hasn't worked in all the bottles and it's not cleared well.
Mind you we're really supposed to leave it somewhere cold for a bit, which might clear it, and maybe trying to express-lane-simulate that using the fridge has stopped it going POP when we take the lids off, rather than the priming having failed.
The parnsip is /still/ bubbling, albeit only about 1 bubble every couple of hours now. It can have another week in the airing cupboard then I'll rack it and put it away for a bit before bottling.
Think I'll bottle the second gallon of plum next week.
Bought some cinnaomn sticks for the mead I'll be making as soon as March actually begins.
