My latest wine is another pawpaw, I just love the idea of making a wine that is not commercially available (as far as I know), this time I'm not shooting from the hip, the S.G is 1.060, and after the first round of fermentation I'm gonna but oak chips in this batch, hopefully give it some of that delightful smokey characteristic. #brewing
Under the advice of a friend, I've decided to throw some hibiscus flowers into the cider. Makes it a lovely shade and will hopefully give the otherwise straight apple taste a secondary note. I guess we'll find out in a few days. #brewing
Just racked the mead, I've got 2 1 gallon jugs now, I'm liking the flavor, but I'm hoping this'll get the yeast working their magic just a little longer, it looks like about 5% ABV, I'd prefer at least 8%, as I feel a dryer mead would work well with this flavor. #brewing
A lot of my friends love high level play, like playing spellcasters with many fiddly choices, the downside of that is it slows combat down far too much for my liking. I'm a "shoot from the hip kinda player. So many of my notes revolve around making combat fast and over quickly, giving the players some tactical choices but not as many as a "well I have 20 different spells to choose from, each one requiring multiple rolls to resolve, hope everyone else has a book ready, this'll take awhile.
As I'm complieing all my various Fudge notes, I can't help but notice how so many of my ideas are in direct response to other RPGs that I was playing at the time. In my college era notes you see my growing annoyance with D&D 3.5, and the exact same issues cropped up again with the notes I wrote while playing Pathfinder 2 years ago.
The nice thing about my new job, is that it isn't as constantly stressful as my last, the employees don't need me to hold their hands constantly, which gives me more time to actually bunker down and write up some of these Fudge One-shot ideas that have been bobbing around my head for the past, 5 years, dang.
I love my folks dearly but really why are we watching Fox news?
