  • I tried to make mead when I was 9 years old. It finally gave itself away while sitting hidden in the back of my closet and was sitting on the kitchen table when I got home from school. Tasted it on the way to dumping it ... did not resemble anything that one would put in their mouth. I'd gotten the idea from somewhere's to cut a finger off of a rubber glove and use the glove as the airlock. Also found out that's *not* a good idea unless you own your own glove.

    Never had any of my 11.2 or 12oz explode, but I have had a few of the 22oz (Guinness Extra
    Stout) bottles go. But that's out of a *lot* of 22oz bottles pasteurized.Have had good luck

    Not all fruit has sufficient nutrition for montrachet (risking H2S formation). I'd go with the
    1118. (or, manage the nutrients and other variables for hydrogen sulfide)

    The cigars I like to have with a beer are the ones I enjoy smoking in general. There's two
    things in particular I look for in a cigar ... and if I try a cigar and it has one or both,
    there is a better...

    Tavern 1608 sounds decent.I'd been thinking "Whiskey Tango Foxtrot" ... or maybe "Jacksonburg,
    Virginia, Wallace Pike", but that sounds a bit too much like an accounting firm.

    Strawberries oxidize pretty quick ... particularly if they are kept in heat too long or are
    heated in some way.While your wine will likely be just fine to the taste ... the brownish color
    may persist....

    First .. I never use the skins. The pesticides sprayed on commercially grown bananas are

    Citric is metabolized during Malolactic Fermentation ... this is not by yeast but by lactic
