    My homemade plum wine. The plums come from my wife's Thai friend who owns a fruit orchard northwest of town. So yeah, pretty much wine from scratch.

    Alcohol level is about 13% and it's in that sweet spot between sweet and dry. The plum taste really shines through.

    Do you measure it with a refractometer?

    And did you just add sugar and yeast or what was your process?

    I'll be making ginger beer soon, which is technically just ginger wine.

    Just juice, sugar, and yeast to make the wine. A half teaspoon of pectinase to clear it up after fermentation. Then decant into a bottle using a coffee filter. .

    I already finished off my Ribena wine. It was a weird one. It had a strange medicinal taste, but at the same time it was very more-ish.

    Sorry, no pix of the Ribena experiment.

    Half a teaspoon for a gallon?
    How long after adding the pectinase do you bottle it? I have some pectinase but haven't found the best way to make it effective yet.

    I made, er, wine from prune juice. Let's just say it had an interesting flavour profile.

    I wait until it does its magic and everything is not cloudy. Then I clean up the wine by pouring it through a coffee filter.

    I'm probably so far away from what experts and keen hobbyists do, but so far most of my homemade wine, not all mind, has been enjoyable to drink.

    I thought in the interests of science I should answer my own question. It's sort of okay, initial taste is standard cheap rum and cola with a slice of lemon, the aftertaste is a little bitter and cloying. Not joining my list of preferred cocktails. Maybe I could have tried the Pepsi neat but where's the fun in that?

    ^ I don't want to come across as posh but I would go Hong Thong over Sang Som any day of the week.

    ^ Hong Thong is 5% weaker and about as posh as Siam Sato, Blend 285 or nail varnish remover

    No poshness intended, I think that SangSom is closer to a rum and HongThong closer to a whisky. (Although, frankly, both are far from real spirits.) I have a bottle of each on the shelf, I only thought the SangSom was a more natural pairing with a cola. It wasn't. Or, to be fair, it wasn't more or less natural because the HongThong route is yet to be explored. More experimentation required.

    That gave me a good laugh Dil. Blend 185....HAHAHA. There is another topshelf one called Pipers or something like that. I hear that you pour a tall glass of coke and then pour the Pipers on the ground and enjoy the coke.

    100 Pipers is Scottish whisky. A cut above the Thai spirits.

    Last time I drunk Sang Som back in 2003 I shit myself on the Koh chang ferry and ended up married.

    A more discerning gentleman with a cultured palate might opt for a half bottle of Regency

    I'll drink any of those if it's all that's available but that Meekong stuff is truly a test of one's character.

    Well after a full boat physical passing with flying colors I embark on another year being med free.

    That said.......





    I decided to crack open a bottle I had been holding. This is probably one of the finest sipping Tequilas around.



    First one went down so well, poured me another

    Cheers

    Happy, do you sometimes ponder whether your ME existence is spilling over into the time you spend in the real world
