Watermelon TC

Post by WalesAles » Wed Apr 24, 2019 8:04 pm

Knocked this up yesterday.
18lts Tesco apple juice
1 big watermelon
Chopped a quarter of the melon and put it in the FV with 2Lts AJ,
gave it a good drilling with plasteres whisk to see if it would go to mush.
It did not.
MrsAles in work so I thought to use her top of the range Kenwood mixer/blender. #-o
Yes, it mashed the next quarter melon lovely mun, went to take off the glass jar thing and
the wrong bit came off! Bloody melon juice all over the units! [-X
Managed to save some of it.
The other half melon mushed up nicely and the glass jar thing came off OK this time.
3 mugs of tea, 4 bags each,
3tsp Yeast, 3tsp nutrient in at 22deg
SG 1040

WA

Sent from my Sofa.

Ever since I heard the words of the crooner song, "Old dogs and children and watermelon wine", I've had a hankering for some. Let us know how it tastes

john,
It is sharper than a Witch`s Tit and her sister`s Tit.
Even after batch priming with 150gr sugar it was still sharp!
Not as sharp as before, but bloody hell mun, still sharp.
Did I say sharp? Yea, it`s sharp.

Sharpie want to sponsor me. £Trillions involved.

Not really sure what you're trying to tell us here, WA.

Reading between the lines I'm wondering if, just perhaps, it was a bit sharp?

Pardon me if I've misunderstood your post.

Guy,
A bit sharp?
Are you having a laff or what? :D
Sharp as in `Sharp or Sharp as F$$K`?
It is SHARP!

Sharp as in 'Harp stays sharp to the bottom of the glass'?

Showing my age here!

Funny word 'sharp'. The more you say it, the less it means. Just becomes a sound.

This stuff is `Ych y fi`.

(Please Note: "drinkable" is not the same as "palatable"!) #-o
Copied from Dutto in `Introduce Yourself`.
At 5.5% it is very get you drunk stuff, not nice, but why waste it! :D
It feels stronger than 5.5%, 5 pints in the sunny garden and I am issed as a parsole [-X .

Well, well, all my sharp, horrible, vile, disgusting TC has gone.
Not down the drain as you all thought! #-o

WA

Never making that again.
