My Dad and his partner Norma, and Kim’s mum Pam are all coming to visit in early November, so I thought it wise to make some essentials over the weekend in preparation for their arrival.
I put down this Indian Pale Ale (coopers kit beer) and added 300 gms of Dextrose, and 500 gms of Light Malt powder to it. It should be ready to bottle by the end of the week, and ready to drink by the time they arrive. It should have an alcohol content of about 4.2%. I still have some Aztec Gold in the cupboard with Dad and my name on it if this batch is not ready.
I made the farmhouse cheddar with peppercorns (left hand side) in preparation for their visit, with the other on the right being a Wensleydale with sage for my friend Kate from Cygnet, Tasmania who is doing a drive by early in November as well.
The second batch of Limoncello should be ready to drink, so I hope it is warm enough for a tipple. I have a week of annual leave, so we should have a great time. I am looking forward to the visit and the short break!
