    Any yeast with a high diacetyl production works well but you have to rack quickly to make sure
    the yeast do not clean up the diacetyl. Good yeasts that I know of are:Wyeast 1187 ringwood

    As. I posted befor you can use a finishing yeast or make a new dry mead and blend the two.
    Ec-1118 can work as a finishing yeast. I prefer 1116 but 1118 is really good for stuck high
    gravity fermentat...

    Adding extra yeast does not always help. Just leave it alone for now. Check back in a month or
    two and see where it is. Any luck and the yeast may push the gravity down to 1.030 which is
    about as swee...

    Hmmm some rootbeer people say wintergreen is a must and you don't have traditional rootbeer
    without it. I like ginger better myself. So I don't know just yet.

    Lol I actually went around to 4 different stores in my area looking up the roots for rootbeer.
    Sadly I find nothing! So extract is what I got. I guess I could order stuff online... May need
    to look in...

  • Posted in thread: Is Pineapple Mead Truly Possible? on 10-07-2014 at 12:41 AM
    Yeast just seem to hate pineapple in general and something about it goes wrong very easily. I
    think what gratus suggests is the best bet for pineapple mead. Make a solid traditional and
    just rack onto...

    I have about 260 pounds this year from 4 hives (2 originals and 2 swarms that cooperated and
    did their thing when I was home). I have to admit I have't done mead yet, but this fall I am
    going to give ...

    Probably over a month but it may still be fine if you went more. So no rush or worry.The sweet
    mead yeasts are hard to get going in high gravity musts. It may be slow going for you. Best of
    luck with ...
