Plant Hanger Post

I made a post for my SO where she can hang some flower baskets in the northern germany refuge garden. Mounted (at least decently upright) on a dead tree stump, I think it looks beautiful.


Growing Oyster Mushrooms from a Kit

I grabbed an oyster mushroom growing kit at a garden store sale almost half a year ago and I finally found the time to put it to use. It’s a convenient and un-complicated way to learn how to care for and cultivate your own home grown mushrooms.


Outdoor-/Fishing Knife Done

I finally finished my Outdoor-/Fishing Knife that I was working on for so long this time. See previous posts #1, #2 and #3 if you like. It’s made from 3 mm 90MnCrV8 steel (type 1.2842), hardened at ~830 °C, quenched in oil and annealed for two hours at 210 °C in the oven. The scales are mahagoni with a cutout for the glass breaker at the end of the handle.


DIY Indoor Smart Garden

I stumbled upon the concept of a “smart garden” in the last weeks, something for example like this one or this one. I like the idea, they look neat and I like the idea of somewhat “controlled” inhouse herbs- and greens-growing.

After some research, I found out they all do basically the same thing: They’re all some kind of an automated hydroponic system, with some sort of grow light, water and nutrient control and easily interchangeable growing pods. Most feature a wick system to ensure constant water supply to the plants, an aeration system and an electronic contraption to monitor and regulate everything.


Workshop Beer Taste Test Part 4 (Finale) – “Yggdrasil”

So now for last candidate in the taste test series. The famous

Yggdrasil

Yggdrasil is an immense ash tree that is center to the cosmos and considered very holy. The gods go to Yggdrasil daily to assemble at their things […] The branches of Yggdrasil extend far into the heavens, and the tree is supported by three roots that extend far away into other locations; one to the well Urðarbrunnr in the heavens, one to the spring Hvergelmir, and another to the well Mímisbrunnr. Creatures live within Yggdrasil […]

(Wikipedia de|en)

“Yggdrasil” is a red ale type of beer, unfortunately – for my taste – an all too red red ale… It is very fruity, even “juicy” if you want to put it like that, and for my feel overly sour. Definitely an unusual drink that you have to get acquainted to. People might like it but it surely is not an everyday casual drink.

Skål!

Workshop Beer Taste Test Part 3 – “Mjölnir”

The next beer’s name is known to everybody from the Marvel movie “Thor” (though its story heavily messed up in that film):

Mjölnir

Mjölnir is the hammer of Thor, the Norse god associated with thunder. Mjölnir is depicted in Norse mythology as one of the most fearsome and powerful weapons in existence, capable of leveling mountains […] In the Old Norse texts, Mjölnir is identified as hamarr “a hammer” […]

(Wikipedia de|en)

They wanted to make Mjölnir very traditional, hence it is unfiltered and you can taste that. It’s a Lager and for that, it is surprisingly strong with 5.3% vol. It’s fruity and just a little acidic, easy to have one or several of it. It’s a pleasant beer – a very dangerous drink on hot days 🙂

Skål!

The Fairy Door is Finally Mounted!

The fairy door I made some time ago for the northern germany refuge is finally mounted and ready for the hard “use”!


Workshop Beer Taste Test Part 2 – “Baldur”

The second part of the Wacken Brewery workshop beer taste test series. Today‘s special guest:

Baldur

“Baldr (also Balder, Baldur) is a god in Norse mythology and a son of the god Odin and the goddess Frigg. He has numerous brothers, such as Thor and Váli […] Baldr had the greatest ship ever built, Hringhorni, and there is no place more beautiful than his hall, Breidablik […]”

(Wikipedia de|en)

„Baldur“ is a german beer specialty called „Märzen“ (I couldn‘t find a suitable English translation). A beer traditionally brewed in spring and, in order to prevent any possible beer shortages and to make it more long-life, it was brewed with more wort and thus a higher alcohol content. People liked it for some reason… Being that, it is rather heavy (5.5% vol.), very malty and with a noticeable bitterness. Nothing to binge upon but rather to deliberately pour and drink purposefully. Very good.

Skål!

Workshop Beer Taste Test Part 1 – “Sleipnir”

I got 4 different sorts of craft beer as a gift for my birthday this year, all made by Wacken Brewery (yes, correct, that “Wacken” the well-known northern german heavy metal festival). They make several types of beer, all named after nordic deities with their names explained and elaborately designed bottles.

I want to try them one each day and leave my opinion. So yesterday’s number one was:

Sleipnir

“In Norse mythology, Sleipnir (old Norse “slippy” or “the slipper”) is an eight-legged horse ridden by Odin […] it is the child of Loki and Svaðilfari, is described as the best of all horses, and is sometimes ridden to the location of Hel […]”

(Wikipedia de|en)

“Sleipnir” is a pale ale (german: “Helles”). Thus, it’s an easy, casual and refreshing drink and not too heavy – it’s a good thirst quencher with a slightly dry hint. For my tastebuds, it is almost a little bit too fruity, but nonetheless delicious and a nice cold treat.

Skål!
