Ray Mears - My Fake Diary

Thursday, 8 January 2009

Me an' the BBC film crew seem to have lost a few hours somewhere.

We're putting it down to last evening's nightcap that we drank sat round the campfire.

A couple of weeks ago Gordon, me Neolithic Cuisine archaeologist mate, got on about stone age methods of making booze Early style ale and mead, and I started experimenting with the bloody obvious: a simple home-made still.

Worked out okay really.

Hollowed-out gourds, bamboo pipes, tubular reeds, sugar beet, wild barley, taters: then let it stand for five minutes. Ouch!

A kick like a menstruating mule with an attitude problem though.

Great stuff.
