    Default Another Obsession? Uh oh!

    Since I already registered, I may as well say hello

    So.... Hello!

    My name is Manley, and I'm an... Oh, wait, wrong crowd..
    I really am a home winemaker though - an honest obsession.

    From WA State, highly motivated, and love to learn.
    I've been reading about beekeeping off and on for about 6-8 months, and a friend from a wine forum I'm on, told me to come crash y'alls party
    So here I am

    Hopefully y'all can put up with me

    I wont be getting hives any time in the immediate future; I spent a year learning about wine making before I took the plunge so I'll probably do something similar with beekeeping & I'm sure a few of you will pop in and tell me the best way to learn is to get my hands dirty.. It's okay, I can handle it.. It's just a timing thing, I'm on the coast right now but I'd rather my hives be in North-Central WA and it's going to take me some time to get that rolling

    Anyone interested in wine/mead making, dont be scared to pick my brain
    Dunno how you all feel about links to other forums, so I wont go that far.. But I can point anyone who wants, in the right direction

    Hope to get to know some of ya, and learn bundles
    Thanks for the community to do so!

    Federal Way/ Wenatchee, huh?
    There's a big difference !
    McGlinn's instead of Salty's...
    Too hot instead of too wet...But there is a nice swimming hole near the Bridge in Plain, just up the river.

    Welcome!

    A bit of a difference yeah; I know I prefer 'too hot' to 'too wet' lol
    McGlinn's > Salty's, anyday, too
    ... And thats quite a ways 'up the road' lol - lots of swimming holes between the Valley and there

    Manley, we need more meadmakers over here! In 2 weeks we are going to cook off 5 gallons of honey to make a couple of batches of Bochet at our local homewinemaking brew your own place in Frederick MD, the Flying Barrel. Hoping a couple of folks might bring in some mead to taste while we are cooking. To bad the breeze from here doesnt blow your way, I think we will make the whole town thinks there is a caramel festival! WVMJ
