    Hey madgaz. My first batch ever was 1.1Kg of honey to 3 liters of water and it came out very

    I did not know Brouwland. Thanks a lot!I'm browsing through all their bottles/tanks/casks

    Thank you for all your answers, I went ahead and Pasteurized my batch before backsweetening,
    it's perfect right now, taste wise, no new fermentation.It's just resting until December. I've
    had a couple...

    Ok. Seems simple enough. I'll go with Pasteurizing. Is there a thread somewhere where I can

    Hey guys,last week I posted this: about the yeast aftertaste, and the bottles have been in
