Was planning on 14-15 lbs for the sweeter batch and 12 lbs for the dryer batch.
Kahuna, could you explain what you mean by keep adding honey until it craps out? Do I add honey in increments after I begin brewing? When I rack, do I top off with more honey or with honey/water, or just water?
Also, what do you propose would be a good period of time for aging on the fruit? A month? Two?
How long should they dryer mead age on the oak? Days? Weeks?
I appreciate all the advice you guys give, thanks.
