since we had a glut of blackberries (and bugger all sloes), i've just done 3 bottles of blackberry vodka, varied the amount of sugar so its a bit of an experiment (in the interests of science of course... :roflanim: )
can't wait to try 'em....
Alistair, you're brew sounds lovely, one for next year...

I've been out hunting for anything hedgerowy this morning, nothing basically, bloody weather, last year I found a medlar tree, can sort of remember where, so took my iPhone out with me this morning, (I'm trying to sort of create a gps map of where stuff is on it) could I find it, no, why, someone's cleared the copse and built a fence, in lieu with some grass running up to it, who did his, the council did, is it in thel middle of nowhere, yes, what s the point  :-[
