  • Posted in thread: My first mead: A tutorial of Mistakes. on 01-17-2017 at 02:57 AM
    My first batch of mead took nearly a year. At that rate, I was not going to become a Mead
    Master by the age of 80. Yeast really don't like honey, which is mostly glucose and anti-fungal
    bee spit. Bees...

    Those using different hops such as EKG, are you raising the amount used to match IBUs?I'm using
    1.3 oz EKG 60 minutes, .7 oz 30 minutes. I'm limited to a 6# stovetop mash, so I do a partial
    mash at 14...

  • Posted in thread: Keezer collars - which wood to use? on 09-07-2016 at 01:14 AM
    After using my keezer for a few years, I can't recommend foam insulation on the inside. As the
    keg goes in (40+ pounds), it may scrape the sides. I dunno - maybe y'all are stronger than I
    am. Wood can...

    Can't seem to find a good idea of what to use for my collar. What's the best choice for type of
    wood and its thickness?I used 2x6 construction-grade redwood. It may seem counter-intuitive,
    but finishe...

    SG=1.042 - 3 points in 5 days. I'm calling it a bust. Sodium Benzoate is a really good
    preservative.After their devastating loss, Team Notty is considering filing formal doping

    Any issues with foam due to the short line?What connection did you use from hose to

    Presumably, the OP is employing yeast to knock that sweetness down.Yes, that's the objective.
    That, and add a bit of ethanol. :tank:SG=1.044. Not looking good for Team Notty. Team Dad's

    +2hrs. Lag done. Game on. Advantage: Nottingham.

    Oh frack. The ingredients include sodium benzoate, as well as "pure cane sugar"' (sucrose). My
    faith in yeast stands firm, especially the 100ml+ blorp of Nottingham added to this heinous
