Quick question, how many have tried stormthecastle.coms 1gal version of this? I've had mine going for about a month now, ballon and plastic jug and all. How long did you let it sit before drinking? And when should it palatable?

May as well get in on this madness. The only changes I made were, I used Red Star wine yeast, and added a vanilla bean. Started fermenting in around 2 hours. OG - 1.108

Hi all, I've started up my 2nd and 3rd batch of this, but I'm curious, how is everyone testing their OG, when there is orange slices/chunks and all in such a small mouthed carboy like a 1G? perhaps I'm just not being creative enough, LOL...thanks for any tips and tricks...p.s. I love me some JAOM...

The first mead I ever made was with Will from stormthecastle's instruction. Will is a gent in every respect, and you can trust his recipe.

The answer I have isnt one you are going to love. You will know that the mead is ready visually, when it clears and the fruit falls. The only way to know when it is palatable is to taste it, (un)fortunately. There will be a few tastes you might not like much... let it wait a while longer... and try it again. There are too many variables to give a hard and fast answer.

I appreciate the answer. I made 3 gallons on a whim experimenting with the recipe. One is by the books, the second was with quick rise yeast. An the second I attempted to rack off the fruit an yeast but ended transferring a large amount of yeast with it. I will say that the one I racked off after a couple weeks did not inspire a tasting on smell and looks alone.

Made this object 4/17/2012 and it still tastes extremely hot (as in alcohol burn)

So opening and tasting won't cause it to spoil?

I don't test my OG as I know how much honey there is in a specific amount of water. So I just use the theoric OG for reference but I do measure FG once the fruits fall to the bottom.

Also, 1G, once ready ... is gone way too fast ... 10G is the answer.
