In other news, we’ll be hosting Headfest 2010 at the end of September – once again demonstrating the ancient art of Fulacht Brewing. This time round we’ll be preparing a heather ale, so first step this weekend is to gather heather flowers, mill our barley and brew up a batch for tasting on the day. Once again, the Galway Hooker people (thanks very much Aidan!) have donated a bag of barley – it is unmilled so we’re putting out a call for a milling machine locally – or a large handmill!
