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.
