..Wrathwilde's new and improved Meadworks. Shelving and Craftsman Chest are new. The meadworks have been consolidated, from 3 rooms to one, from 4 storage bins of supplies to one Craftsman Chest. It's not quite finished, the 4 foot section between the corner units will be getting a butcher block shelf, the Bottle Capper, Corker, Enolmatic & Filters will all reside there. The Red portions of the Capper and Corker will receive a few coatings of black Plasti Dip, as will the bottle tree to make them less tacky and more in line with the rest of the decor.

..This is my Dining Room believe it or not (apartment) with the kitchen table removed to facilitate the pics. The Demijohn & kegs next to the stove are empty, no full carboys, kegs, or demijohns will ever be stored there.

..Meads are as follows. Syrinx has 3 gallons of elderberry and 5 gallons of Macadamia Nut in my Meadworks. I currently have 5 gallons of pineapple mead from '05, 24 gallons of Sourwood~Snowberry~Meadowfoam, 3 gallons of a Blueberry Melomel and 3 gallons of Macadamia Nut~Snowberry bulk aging. I also have 6.5 gallons of Acerglyn and 6.5 Gallons of Cyser settling.

Anybody else willing to put up some meadworks pics? Use this thread.

Cheers,
Wrathwilde

..Not Sure how it tastes currently, Once the gravity stabilizes and I label it for bulk aging it doesn't get opened for at least a year. It tasted good when I took the final reading, I'll let you know in about a year.

The Poster is an original "blank" lithograph from the Rolling Stones concert tour in 1969 (my birth year). Blanks are the posters without venue information which would be added at a later time.

Oh cooooool!!! Is it signed and numbered? I have a couple old Rolling Stones posters, they had some great ones! One of the gems of my collection is for a Janis Joplin show with Big Brother and the Holding Company and New Riders at the Fillmore East (NYC) that same year ('69). She stands totally newd juxtaposed in front of a giant sticky ganja plant. Ticket prices are $3-5. Its tits. Literally.

sorry to digress...:rolleyes: :p

..Unfortunately no, it's just from a stack of blanks that had been found in a warehouse about 5 or 6 years ago. No Idea how many they found, it was in near perfect condition as they had been stored flat, just some yellowing at the edges from age.

..The only signed and dated print I have is a Cooper from a Lords of Acid Concert, 124 of 150.

Lords of Acid Print probably not safe for work. Photo was taken at an angle to avoid flash glare. Here is a better image of the Rolling Stones Poster as well. Also NSFW

Very Silence of the Lambs going on over there.

It puts the lotion on it's skin or else it gets the hose again.
