    The bonus segment was interesting, and it made me think of a suggestion for your DIY series. Instead of editing your stuff to fit into one episode, or one episode and a bonus ep, why not plan for a an outright minisode. Something like a “plan and scoping with a light refreshment” ep, then a “gather and consult with some experimental drinks” ep, finally the “big reveal with some bubbly” ep.
