Damson (wine) takes between 2 and 6 weeks to brew, and at least a year to mature - you can drink it before then, but it tastes a little rough when freshly fermented.


So let it sit right?

Sorry in being slow to respond but these new med's are kicking my butt. If this keeps up much longer I might consider Beer and Johnny Walker over using Med's. :o

Here is one, years ago in upstate NY we had a beer called Genesee Cream ale. I bought 6- 12 packs out here in CA. Oh man I was in hog heaven. Can't get them to send me another (not a dealer) and the store won't get anymore. The lady told me she had a women call from Alaska and she would even buy a truck load? Nope! Well Alaska is a tough state anyway.

Many of the "country" wines are best left for a year or so. This particularly applies to the reds, where the freshly brewed wine is very bitter and leaves horrendous after taste, but after a few months it develops a whole new character, smooth, pleasant after-taste, and depending how it was brewed it can have a kick like a mule.

I do like the Beaujolais Nouveau though. Every year they sell it, freshly brewed. Has a bit of a light taste and one year is better than the other but it's a decent wine for sure.

I make that rhubarb wine and it takes a whole year to set. Like a said before it's good but very dry. Best of all it but my sister out for a while. :)

As a local to that particular brewery I have two statements.
1. Eck, how you and others can drink Cream Ale is beyond me. ;-)
2. As far as I've heard, Genesee sells more of that stuff in other states than they do here, so someone somewhere has some more for you.

Beaujolais Nouveau to me is a very light wine that has no substance to it. I think the tradition of the Nouveau races has more to do with its popularity than the wine itself. Sorry

You might have a point there, Chris. I must say it's not my favourite wine either...

A citizen of the Beaujolais region once described "Nouveau" as being nearly as undrinkable as something the cat micurated...

Is it safe to post in here?

Lager (German: storage) is a type of beer that is fermented and conditioned at low temperatures. Pale lager is the most widely-consumed and commercially available style of beer in the world. Bock, Pilsner, Dortmunder Export and Märzen are all styles of lager. There are also dark lagers, such as Dunkel and Schwarzbier. The term Lager is a cognate of ligrs, Gothic for "place of lying (down)".
