Hey Heirloom I'm glad to see you back here and I wish you the best in the coming time. I think that sounds like a great idea, something i'm sure your nephew will love (the tasting at least ha!).
The other day when I posted I started brewing a Water Mellon beat soda using my ginger bug, and a Water Mellon beet wine with champagne yeast. When I woke up today and burped the soda it sprayed everywhere and I lost 75 percent of the bottle to the kitchen floor and walls lol. It was like a brutal crime scene hahah!! Gonna be mopping the floor and spraying down the walls and fridge today :(
Always good memories of the first homebrew. I did a naturally fermented morning glory wine made from the flowers of Ipoema Triloba (Tievine), was last year but I have grown so much since then. I remember drinking it one night with the girl who I am now dating. Things were different then, as they always are, just a queer boy trying to cope with my sexuality and a T-girl trying to engender life as they felt they should.
I've been brewing ever since. I'm still a novice, making mistakes and stumbling my way there. I really like home brewing because its cheap. Essentially every brew that I make is super easy and requires no special equipment, just like your early experience all those years ago when you poured bread yeast into juice. Curiosity expressed as seen fit and blossomed into something beautiful. A beautiful life.
