Life by Chocolate

Chocolate, white, milk, dark, in all its forms forms life. Chocolate truffles, caramels, and other confections are at the core of enjoyment. This is life by chocolate because death by chocolate is the wrong attitude.

A quick update on the Mead...

The Sack (Sweet) Mead I was worried about is bubbling away. Not as aggressively as the Dry but it's bubbling. The Dry is going crazy. I also just finished another Petite Saison d'Été. But this time, I put in the Styrian Golding, the entire amount, for 10 mins, .75 oz of the Saaz for 10 minutes and the rest for 2. I also added 3 oranges quartered, everything, rind and all, and a little more than a pound of pineapple chopped up, fresh. no rind about 30 minutes before chilling. I did a very rapid chill. Less than 10 minutes it was about 47F. Fast. Now it's fermenting. In a bucket. Enjoy your beer and chocolate.

I just noticed I never blogged about the Petite Saison d'Été, A shame. It is a great beer.
