    I have both pinot grigio and moscato that I can use to top up. I am wondering, however, since
    the recipe at this stage calls for adding water to 1 gallon, how much water I should add before
    filling th...

    Okay, so I racked off of the sediment and onto the raisins and there was so much sediment that
    I only retrieved slightly over half a gallon of wine. Granted, at this point in the recipe, I
    did not yet...

    I just racked 2 smoked meads into secondary today. The first was cold smoked over applewood,
    the second over peat moss. I simply took a large stprage container and placed it outside. For
    the applewood...

    Hmm I didnt actually use any clarifying agents. I might have filtered but I cant recall, my gut
    says I did not. How much bentonite did you use?

    Maybe start a mead with unflavoured honey and the same recipe, at the same time? And blend to
    taste when they are finished.Agreed!

    Ok so this could be interesting. I have a friend who suggested I bring him some honey and he
    will cold smoke it with Pecan wood. I'll likely be doing a one gallon batch similar to the
    latest iteration...

    My berry melomel. Back-sweeten with wildflower honey and added some acid blend to brighten it
    up.I have 2 additional gallons sitting on 2 ounces of medium toasted oak cubes. I will let it
