This isn't much of a fishy post but it is what I filled my time with today. I only had one day free this week and I had planned to go turkey hunting but the rain did that in and my buddy bailed on me. My backup plan was to hit the trout waters but again the rain played against me and blew out the rivers. For a plan C I sketched a little and finally got to work racking up some honey wine I had been working on for the last few months.
After sharing a few to many Larceny Bourbon drinks with a friend last night I managed to wake up before the after effects took hold. With a strong cup of coffee and the days activities laid out I keyed up some Robert Earl Keen on the stereo and got to work

I'll end up giving this racking a few months to settle out at which point, depending on whether or not the fermentation process starts up again with the addition of more sugars, I see if it needs to be racked again.
As with all good things time is key. Of course if it ends up tasting like gasoline then at least I'll have a tax write off for my new home grown green fuel.
