One damson mead in secondary ferment after racking; cherry and dandelion mead in the bottle (latter ready to drink, former will take another year), Christmas ale in the bottle, Brown Ale in the keg. I've got a pumpkin ale I want to do next week so here's hoping if I get to it!

First batch of heather ale (as in, malt extract brew with heather instead of hops) of this year bottled and conditioning, though to be honest, quite a bit of it has already been drunk. It's still good, in spite of me leaving it in the bucket too long.

Mad experiment just started: Parsnip "ale" with no added sugar or malt (I'm not sure what to call this - it certainly won't be wine). I'm not expecting this to be very strong!
