Brew 30 and 31

Brew #30, a Gewürztraminer, is finally bottled. This one contained elderflowers. There was a near-disaster when I transfered to secondary because the flowers clogged the port. I was able to save 5 of the six gallons, and half a gallon got used to make sangria, so things turned out well anyway.

Yesterday I started brew #31, an Australian Grenache/Mourvèdre. The initial gravity on this one was 1.106, and it had tons of oak to put into it. I tasted the sample for the specific gravity. Pretty good, I'm betting on lots of tannins.
