More than I have in my backyard. *grin*

We have only done a couple all-grain batches, and then they were all
pre-roasted. I am planning on doing more of this "real soon now".

I have not yet tried to make braggots or honey ales/beers.

This is another one of my goals for this winter after LPT since I *should*
have the time.

Well it's not that exciting since most of it is a line or two on what
things I did that are not "period". Such as for my wine I used a
concentrate this time since it was my first attempt. There are other
tidbits of information in there, but certainly not a research effort.
