I come from a family of home-brewers. I've been home brewing for quite a while now.
I guess, once you’re bitten by the brewing bug there is no stopping; at least that is my experience.
I brew tella ጠላ Ethiopian black beer, mead ጠጅ tej (honey wine), wine and different kind of regular beer from the beer kit.
Tella and tej are the two most consumed traditional alcoholic drinks in Ethiopia for generations and also at present time.
I have also tried to convey my herbalist side into all these brewing experiences by infusing fresh or dried flowers, spices and herbs in already fermented mead; witnessing how the essences of all these elements influenced the finished, (mouthful or dryness) and also the bouquet as well as the complexity of the mead.
