All bottled

‘Wassail’ is now all bottled up. 166 bottles in all – the most I’ve ever made in one batch. Have kept a little for tasting but hope to have it ready for sale by the end of the week. I’ve resurrected a warm box, originally made by my late father-in-law for wine-making, and I’m using this to hold the beer at about 15 degrees whilst it matures and conditions.

I’ve also spent a while trying to finalise the label. Having changed the name, I needed a picture to go just under it and I’ve found a nice line drawing of a Saxon king with his entourage, probably returning from a campaign and ready to feast in his Great Hall. There he’d host feasting and drinking and much conviviality. I hope you will enjoy this beer with good company. ‘Wassail!’

    We bought 4 of these from the local shop for Christmas and enjoyed it so much we went back and bought up the last remaning stock for new year! Can’t wait to try the next one 🙂
