Re: What is the strangest thing you've brewed?

Few years ago I brewed up a batch of Tea wine - think it was Earl Grey (was quite a while ago) and a batch of Coffee wine (Nescafe to be precise). Both went down rather nicely, the tea had a very delicate flavour.

Re: comfrey in ground or pot?

This is a very timely thread, as we were only talking "Teas" the other night. So we now know that comfrey belongs to the Triffid family :lol: and we need Bocking 14 to stop them taking over.

Thanks everybody :icon_smile:
