    Motrachet...Im tempted to try Cote Des Blancs unless you think 1118 is a better choice.Sorry I
    have been busy with ...

    Brood add little flavor, full grown bees however... Even better if you put live ones in a bag
    and shake them to make'em angry. That adds kick!Lol never actually done that. But I forget
    where but I rem...

    That is correct for most thing. Just divide by 5. But for simplicity sake I would just to 1tsp
    in 1/3cup hot water. But make sure to get that water to boiling and I use a blender or such to
    mix the be...

    My batch was cloudy as ever still. Refuses to clear. I think there is still some fermentation
    going because degassing daily and still no signs of releasing that pressure. I racked, added
    2TBS of cocoa...

    Now that I think about it. If your Koji is dry then you may need to rehydrate it. Give it an
    hour at room temp in just enough water to cover it. Then later it.Fermaidk isn't fine for
    nutrients. You do...

    When I make sake I use 1 1/3 cup Koji to 5 cups rice. But I make my Koji fresh and so probably
    why my 200g is about a cup and yours is about 2 cups. Milky queen rice should be great. Cold
    fermented 11...

    I bottled 2/3 of the 1st batch and blended the second in to fill the space. I can't believe how
    old these meads are already.Right? Today I have planned some time to bottle up a couple bottles
    and then...

  • Posted in thread: What is better juice or fruit on 04-25-2016 at 02:01 PM
    I could see a juiced fruit be easier than whole/crushed fruit in the way of racking losses and
    such. But the two products will be different. Like for instance in pyments using grapes. With
    juice it is...

  • Posted in thread: Want to try something a bit different on 04-24-2016 at 10:47 PM
    Kome-Koji will convert about 4 times the rice by weight. 200g is about a cup right? So 4-5 cups
    of rice and I would add close to 8 cups of water to give you about a gallon batch. You can
    start by laye...

  • Posted in thread: first mead help on 04-24-2016 at 10:23 PM
    That yeast will ferment that fast. No issue here. I will say however that yeast is really,
    really hard to flocculate out. It takes a long while and when you think you are done. Even more
    sediment drop...
