    Seems they will work well for me, because i can get an import beer here from Belgium, which is
    good beer anyway, and then after i have guzzled down 2 cases or so (20 bottles in a case), and
    sterilized...

  • Posted in thread: carrot cider? on 11-20-2008 at 01:51 PM
    I post this almost jokingly, but i was also wondering opinions... is fresh carrot juice able to
    be fermented? In theory, could one make carrot mead or carrot cider? Hm, i might try to make a
    pint or a...

    What about using a double-boiler method? Then its much easier to control the temp, the honey on
    the bottom cant get 'burnt', and the maximum temp would be 100 C. I have used this method a
    bit... the h...

    Quick question... If iodine can be used to sterilize equipment, and it can be used to make
    dirty water into clean drinking water, can it be used in place of campden tablets?

  • Posted in thread: Peanut Butter Honey Sandwiches on 11-15-2008 at 12:56 AM
    Ah yeah, I'm in a place where roasted peanuts without extra oil is common. I didn't even think
    about the fried peanuts being an issue. Peanuts are naturally full of oil anyway, so it will be
    there eve...

  • Posted in thread: Using natural yeast from unpasteurized cider on 11-14-2008 at 03:43 AM
    I'm no great expert on cider, but I've been taught that all fruit has a collection (culture?)
    of airborne wild yeast, living on it's skin/peel. And, unless it is washed off, that this yeast
    will autom...

    Uncooked peanuts have a totally different flavor. Cooked, chopped peanuts taste right, but they
    are so dense that I'm not sure much flavor would come out of them. The goal isn't to just use
    up some pe...

    2) As you pointed out - you start seriously altering your ratios... lots more water. And the
    used grounds would be just that - used.Ok, what about boiling the coffee to get rid of some of
    the water, a...

  • Posted in thread: Coffee Mead on 11-10-2008 at 02:12 PM
    ...depending on which coffee you use I guess... hm, is there a coffee extract that could be
    used maybe? I am thinking more about the honey/ green tea/ ginger thing.

  • Posted in thread: Coffee Mead on 11-09-2008 at 06:18 PM
    One method you might like to consider is to make a strong "tea" of the 3 flavors using a small
    amount of water - say 250-400 ml. Boil it down to volume, remove from the heat, cool
    slightly, and then...

Support Medicinal Mead Another reason not to boil honey when making mead: Honey which comes from local bees carries pollen and pathogens relevant to your area. Consuming these natural medicines will boost your resistance to local pollens and other allergens. Boiling destroys them. If all else fails, just drink more mead anyway...
