Christmas Cheer

It's that time of year again. Christmas is rapidly closing in on us all, and new Year not far behind (if you live in Asia, Tet/Spring Festival is also just around the corner.) It's Winter time in the Northern hemisphere, so time to brew some malty, higher gravity goodness, if you haven't already done so.

We're off to Germany this year for Christmas/New Year/Tet so, I'll be laying down a couple of beers in the next week or so, to be ready y the time we return. In the meantime, I've just put the finishing caps on a batch of Gluwein. The missus nocked these up last night, and I've spent the morning hot bottling them in lovely stone bottles with grolsch/flensburg-style fliptops. These are reclaimed bottles from some Belgian St.Paul Beers. Best thing about these, is that we can take them to a party, and heat them up in a pot of boiling water and be good to go.

So, all the best for the cominig season, hope your brews go well.

That's all from The Herald of Change,

Get that int' ya!
