Very nice. I just bottled a batch of plum mead with lavender. I bet those little buggers are packed with flavor. What exactly are you making with those?

I juiced them and introduced sweet mead yeast and some cane sugar to up the gravity....
Should be some type of wine.  May decide to champagne bottle and sparkle, not sure yet.

No Pete, they are smallish wild plums. Between the size of a dime and a quarter.
 Mostly seed but HUGE flavor and goodness. They are in primary fermenter as I type. 
The bouquet they give off is intoxicating in and of itself.

I found some VIDA San Luis and am thinking I like the taste of both San Luis varietials
I have tried better than other mezcals. It just bodes more pleasant on my taste buds.

9 months later.....

Until I took a dip with the wine thief, there was Not a pellicle. I let in Oxygen and got this... :P
Taste was pretty funky!

Well over a year has passed and the warning comes up over 120 days...yeah I is that beer today
as it was tapped from the keg...the flavor is kind of like Pears..some barnyard hay..but with a sour flat thing on the tougue...there is little head and it comes across flat ....maybe I can pick up some foam in the kegerator but i am thinking this one is sans head with a little short lived lace ....Pure lambic+no fruit is kind of good in it's own way.

Depending upon how long you you are soaking with water.....uh subjective....
But keeping it full of water will work.  That said, the objective is to keep the wood
saturated to prevent shrinkage and the concurrent leakage caused by shrinkage.

Prior to re-populating with beer, perhaps a good spin with boiling steamy hot water
and a spray with some everclear to kill any bugs. 

Also should you gain any oxygen on top of your water layer, you will produce a great
environ for mold and mildew which will be of detriment. Therefore FULL FULL FULL
should be your mantra.
