In Praise of Homemade Potent Potables ClapSoCuisine™ #5…

Bottoms up, we ain’t getting any younger ya know…

Here’s a suggestion for real hope, change and responsibility:

“The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.

– Ralph Waldo Emerson

ClapSotronics Official Motto:

All the following brewed, photographed, and drank By ClapSo

My grandmother owned and operated a Speakeasy in Red Hook Brooklyn during prohibition. It then became a bar and grill run by my uncle Funsie for decades. Booze has been important to my family for generations.

Across the street from my family home which was also in Brooklyn lived a grand old man named Luigi Cona. He taught me the basics of the home wine making craft in the ’60’s. It wasn’t until the 70’s that I tried my hand at it. But I’ve done so now, on and off, for several decades. Although the following pic is of my modern setup, it looks very much like the one Luigi used back in the day:

I make a number of flavors of still Mead. Here’s what a home brewers wine rack looks like.

Since I’m an apartment dweller a closet must suffice as my cellar.

The overflow often winds up in kitchen cabinets

And everywhere else

But the payoff is when I hand over a bottle and we uncork *POP* pour *GULG, GLUG*  raise glasses *CLINK!* and drink *MMMMMMMMMMMM* Luigi Cona taught me well…

If you’d like to try your hand at it. This video is one of the best for beginners I’ve ever seen:

I’ll finish up with a shout out to the kids at Label Peelers from whom I purchase most of my equipment and supplies.
