    Default I have SUCH good news!!

    I am pregnant!!!

    I'm so excited!! Please pray for us, I haven't had much luck in this venue.

    It does put a little bit of a hitch in my mead-tasting plans, tho. I'll still be brewing, and making mead, but my wonderful hubby gets to do the heavy lifting, and (such a sacrifice!) tasting. Ah, well, sacrifices must be made. No complaints here, tho! I'm pregnant!! eeeheeheehee!!


    If at first you don't succeed, then skydiving is not for you!

    Congrats!

    Best of luck!

    I guess you'll be bulk-aging your mead a little longer than anticipated! Though beer (and probably mead) does help breast milk come in after delivery!

    As you can see by my avatar, I like kids.

    cheers,

    Who is going to start a batch for them to deliver in nine months? Any good 9-month duration recipes?

    Congratulations! We just had our first (a boy) on New Years Eve.

    You should think about making a batch to lay down until he/she is old enough to drink it with you.

    Best of luck,

    Awesome!! Congrats!

    I agree, time to start planning on the 21-year mead. It's almost enough motivation for me to start having kids.

    And you know, they're being more and more forgiving of the alcohol thing. I'm sure you could sneak a few quality control checks in without any harm. You know, if you had to double-check the husband.

    I will echo the hearty round of congrats!

    Our prayers will be with you. We have 2 homegrown and 2 foster. My oldest homegrown has another 10 years and 3 months until he hits the magic 21... He loves to help me work around the mead - especially when we start a new batch. He found the last batch at 55 gallons to be an amazing experience. My daughter spent more time snitching bits of oranges than she spent "helping" but it is fun to have them around.

    Keep us posted!

    To date I have never once had even a smidgeon of regret about it.

    Welcome to the world of parenting... and ya thought mead was messy ::grins::

    Well done and congratulations from this side "of the pond".

    I can't say that I'll "do" prayers. We're both agnostic/atheist, but that won't stop hopes of a fine, healthy child for you.

    As for not having had much luck in such directions ? obviously all the "trying" has paid off

    I don't follow why you feel that "it" should prevent you from enjoying the occassional drink though. As with anything, moderation is good, excess isn't. Hence a glass/unit (unit defined as about a 125ml measure of a wine @ 10 to 12% ABV) is unlikely to be an issue. So long as you generally consume a balanced, healthy diet then why should there be any problems ?

    Again, well done and congrat's to both of you.

    regards

    p.s. Oh and if you find that you "crave" for a certain something, try not to choose anything too expensive or difficult to obtain

    Congratulations!

    It'll be fun -- and of course, sometime down the road you'll be dropping hints to hubby that maybe your first born would like a brother or sister.

    A 21 year batch -- any votes for heather honey?

    Well it'd get my vote, but I understood that it's difficult/expensive to get "Stateside"? Is that right ?

    I mean, I've got a batch of heather honey mead (1 gallon) that's just close to finishing the ferment i.e. it's at about 1003 but as it started at 1140 and I used K1V, I'm surprised that it's got that low

    Irrespective, it tastes a little rough, but the yeast and honey combination tells me that that's to be expected. Once it's strained (it's got some weird granular looking sediment in the bottom of the fermenter at the moment) and racked, I suspect it'll age quite nicely (I'm gonna put a bit more honey in it anyway as I like sweet meads - about the 1015 mark).

    I doubt I'd be able to keep it that long though - I'd have to bury it in the garden or something daft

    regards
