    Ok, first off thank you for looking at this. I have a batch of mead that has been fermenting
    for 3 weeks now. Still bubbling smoothly. I did some research before I began but obviously not
    enough. I do...

    Thank you everyone for the advice and info. This is how it turned out. 15lbs of honey,
    nutrients, and plenty of oxygen due to the cordless drill paint stirrer attachment I picked up.

    I've never heard that light kills yeast. I'm 99.9% sure that's not true. Try as you might, I

    I have tried a few recipes found on other sites unsuccessfully and I'm tired of wasting my
    spent grain. Several of the recipes I've found here call for a bread machine, which I don't

    Those kit instructions are usually shady and not very detailed. I have pulled a wealth of info
    from here, but everyone's method and style are different.

Give a man a beer, he'll drink for the day.Teach a man to brew, he'll be drunk the rest of his life.
