I’m taking part in a group buy over on the National Homebrewclub forums.
Members in the club came together to buy over 2000 litres of apple juice to turn into cider over the next few months.
I’ve one 25 litre drum waiting for me. This should make some lovely cider for next summer.
Next step is to get set for fermentation!
I’ll document the process here and on the East Cork Rebel Homebrewers page.
There’s a great Cider 101“how to” on making cider on the NHC forums.

Michael in Bradleys of North Main St. and the lads over at Elbow Lane have worked together to create this:
It’s a super limited lager brewed by the folks in Elbow Lane and named in a competition on twitter.
You don’t get much more local than these guys!
If you’re looking for gifts for this Christmas, Michael has an awesome slection in the shop, and he’ll make up a special gift set or hamper for you if you don’t see one you like!
There’s a super range of artisan products at the front of the shop too. We’re bringing a batch of these out to Switzerland to make an Irish Foodie morning for the family over the break.

moving from vss to vds?
got lost along the way?
you can restore management connectivity to your hypervisor like so:
# show interfaces
esxcli network ip interface list
# list current vswitch configuration
esxcli network vswitch standard list
#delete non functional interfaces
esxcli network ip interface remove --interface-name=vmkX
#list vds, get the dvPort for the vmnic
esxcli network vswitch dvs vmware list
# delete the nics from vds
esxcfg-vswitch -Q vmnic -V dvPort_ID_of_vmnic dvSwitch
#remove nic from vss
esxcli network vswitch standard uplink remove --uplink-name=vmnic --vswitch-name=vSwitch
esxcli network vswitch standard add --vswitch-name=vSwitchX
#add vmnic to switch
esxcli network vswitch standard uplink ad --uplink-name=vmnicX --vswitch-name=vSwitchX
esxcli network vswitch standard portgroup add --portgroup-name=MYportgroup --vswitch-name=vSwitchX
#create vmk and add to portgroup
esxcli network ip interface add --interface-name=vmkX --portgroup-name=MYportgroup
esxcli network ip interface ipv4 set --interface-name=vmkX --ipv4=ipaddress --netmask=netmask --type=static
#set vlan id
esxcli network vswitch standard portgroup set -p MYportgroup --vlan-id VLAN#
once that’s done you can reattach to vCentre Server.
