Over the last year we've been getting a few people asking about the local Gross Jar. Have we started it? When will we start it? Can I start it for you? And so on.
To be honest it's always been on our minds, pretty much since day one and we've been waiting for the day where big Jesse Pearson (god himself), sticks his head through the clouds and with a booming aural directive, thrust upon us the burden, and honour, of our own pet Gross Jar.
Obviously we were besides ourselves when we were given the green light recently and after we'd finally found a suitable vessel (no easy task on its own) we got to setting up the base for what looks to be a labour of love.
Now we didn't want to rush in with too much liquid or big hunking solids and get ahead of ourselves, we need to stretch this puppy out for at least a year and given that we've just come into winter there isn't the opportunity to leave shit out in the hot summer sun to go septic.
So...we adopted the old K.I.S.S theory and did just that, kept it simple for a start.
- old milk and cream
- cigarette butts
- raw chicken
Once we get an intern we'll send him / her out with some rubber gloves to pick a few things we have in mind.
The aim is to create something of unique colour tone, bouquet and most importantly reflective of life in New Zealand.
