I am making a kiawe blossom honey – lychee melomel this weekend. The yeast will meet the honey must in my 10 gallon Volrath stockpot/fermenter tomorrow (Friday 7/1). On Saturday I’m going to pick, peel and freeze 20 lbs of Ninole lychees. On Monday I’ll thaw, crush and add the lycees to the highly actively fermenting mead must.
Sunday I’ll be running a (3rd) anniversary batch of Very Old Dark Kilauea Ale in preparation for a 5 day campout at Spencer Beach, starting next Wednesday (fishing, diving, grilling, late night music and tall tales…)
