From the earlier news item regarding Knute Kurita, I'll turn this over to the freelance reporter that provided coverage back then.

From the 20 Year Update:

"Överste Knute Kurita is an anonaly in the Inner Sphere. A distant relative to the ruling family of the Draconis Combine, he serves in the military of a rival realm, the Free Rasalhague Republic. The son of Mies Kurita, Knute grew up in the Rasalhague Military District, as had every member of his family for generations. When Rasalhague declared its' independence in 3034, Knute's loyalties were divided between his master in Luthien, and his upbringing, friends and family in Rasalhague. There was little hesitation as Knute joined the fight against the ronin units of the Draconis Combine and then joined the KungsArmë. Knute was promoted to the rank of Överste in 3046, and he commands the First Freemen, based on Last Frontier."

I think it's cool that the old samurai would stick with his friends and family over his "duty" to the big-wig Kuritas. More power to him.

Though as other commentators have said, he seems to not be able to hold his mead. We should get together and send him a sake gift basket.

1 gallon container
3 pounds of honey
1 vanilla bean (split and boiled in water for 5 mins)
25 raisins (food for the yeast)
1 packet of champaign yeast
1 gallon of sparkling spring water
3 months of sitting (rack once after fermentation bubbles disappear then let sit for 2 months)

Viola. You have Masons Vanilla Mead (around 18% alcohol)

EDIT: I forgot to add that you need to seal it (thanks Prosperity).

Since I am using a 1 gallon milk container for mine I use a balloon and just poke a small hole in the top. This allows the fermenting gas to escape (and not blow up your container) while reducing, or eliminating, oxygen from coming in. As Prosperity mentioned; if you unseal it too often or check it too often it ruins it. Patience is key here.

Or... if you check on it frequently and seal the lid improperly, you have Mason's Honey Vinegar (around 18% acidity)


I do love homebrew, though. I made a few 1-quart Mason jars (coincidence?) of yogurt by heating some organic milk to 170 degrees in a stockpot with the lid on, I let it cool to 100 degrees (with the lid still on), then I added a pint of plain yogut and a cup of maple syrup (mixed with a sterile spoon), spilt it up into 4 sterile Mason jars, coverd them with cheese cloth instead of lids so they could breath, and left them in my oven (set to WARM) overnight and into the next day. I had yummy maple yogurt within 24 hours.

Oh, and you can make beer and stuff, too... I guess... :)

There is no such thing as 'drunk' in the space viking community. :)
