The attic has been a thorn in m side for a few years now, and it's something that i return to, do a chunk of work on, and forget for half a year, until guilt sets in again. This month, I'm returning to is, and am determined to make major progress. But I not...

Blind tasting Pils for our local
There are a few things that are worth dusting off the old beer blog for, and a blind tasting is certainly one of them. In this case, a blind tasting to decide what pils will be served at our local. Our local, Landgasthaus zur Linde, closed a couple of month...

Adventures in Distilling (Part 1?)
Germany is pretty well known for its love of rules and
regulations, and the area of making alcohol in the home is no exception. Home

The electric apple mill
Last year, some readers may remember (could they ever
forget?) that I had acquired a fruit mill and press from a friend’s parents, in

Insulating the last cellar
We moved into the house in February 2015, after about four years of heavy renovation work, but due to exhaustion, there was one cellar left uninsulated: the one under our living room. Our first winter in the house was relatively mild, so it wasn't so bad. B...

2017 Catch-up
Apple harvest time is upon us again, but before I get to posting about a new apple mill renovation project, I thought I should give a brief update of what has happened with the house this year. Building had taken a bit of a back seat the first 8 months of t...
