More Ale & More Cords

These past couple of days have been more about doing than making. You know? The doing is the physical part of magic that plays a key role in manifesting dreams. And it is worthy of attention.

So ... I started a repeat batch of a crisp and bright Cardamom Ale. I started a trial batch of Rice Ale, which I've neither made not had before. And these two sit pretty with the Melissa Ale started the other day.



Five gallons of an IPA was bottled yesterday and based on the pre-bottling taste-test, it's gonna be a good, good, good batch!



I did make a few new Spirited Cord Chokers too. It's an act of relaxing meditation for me and I really enjoy making these little cords of intention.

What did you make today?

*laughs* I like to believe I "play a key role in manefesting dreams" even if some may be nightmares for my friends and colleagues - just ask Ryan :p and of course - I belive myself always to be worthy of attention ;)
The cords are so beautiful - love love love the colors and plan to share in their beauty with friends! The ale - sounds delicious - maybe I can coax Ry to start that batch of blueberry mead -finally! ah yes...that will be my "physical part" to Ry's magic! You are a genious!!!

That doesn't really work does it? LOL
Glad you like the choker cords!
Lastly ... mmmmmm ... bluberry mead!

art by spohie - Yeah, I love my homebrews! So does my man (and then some). Often serves as a fine aphrodisiac! :)

I made a mess. 'Twas a fine, singular, mess. Try as I may, I shall never make this particular mess again. Sadly, I shall be leaving the Order of the SRO and retire to an apartment, where more productive endeavors inevitably await me.

Cardamom Ale sounds scrumcios...I love Cardamom. Betcha it goes good with Cardomom Coffee cake. As for the Meade. We have Blueberry Honey..I dont think that will really make a Blueberry Meade but some day I may find out. Someday....

Looks like you've been awfully busy! I haven't been able to craft yet (at the end of this week) ... had school last night where we are working on a Bavarian Raspberry Torte! Yum!

Making a mess can be a good thing creabhar!

And WOW - toe rings and photography and Bavarian Raspberry Torte! Mmmmmmmmmm . . .

And Ryan - is that hint or somethin'?

Ryan said...

I was just saying that it sounds great and it made me think that I really should make a Coffee cake...perhaps I will bring one or two in August. Ales are like beers, right? I dont really like beer..Your brew making skills are amazing thoug...I must say.

Walk in the Woods said...

Ales are like beers?

Sometimes . . . but sometimes not.

The cardamom ale is light and dry, ore wine-like, but bubbly. I think you might ike some of the herbal ales ... perhaps a taste or two in August?!?!

Sorry for not commenting on the ale but I don't drink so know nothing in the world about what you mean... I love the photo's you've taken of them though :)

I also love the colour of the cords you've spun, they are definately beautiful
