    Yes you can use Maple Syrup, it's called an Acerglyn. Should be some theads around here if you
    search for it. The one I am looking at was I think 15 lb honey and half gallon syrup in
    primary, can't re...

  • Posted in thread: apps for mead making on 02-22-2012 at 03:29 PM
    I just made a spreadsheet to do this. It has a log for what I have done, a schedule for
    upcomming actions (rack, bottle, ect), and a mead inventory that calculates the meads age based
    on the current d...

    The only mead I will ever toss is one that is without a doubt infected. Otherwise, time heals
    all meads. JAO is good at 2 to 3 months, but my 1+ year batch is so much better. When I make
    JAO, I let it...

    I have had mead from both Redstone Meadery but I have not tried their stuff yetI think the "all
    commercial mead is bad" thing comes from Chaucer's mead that was a poor excuse for a mead when
    I had it ...

    Where is a good place to look for one gallon glass jugs of juice and/or cider? I have checked a
    couple of local grocery stores and Costco....I only seem to find them at Health food stores and
    Co-opsGi...

    I had a batch of JAO that lasted 4 years, it was still very good at that age, not the same as
    it was at 1 year, but some changes are expected when you age. I don't know if I would say it
    was "Better" ...

    I don't know if this suites your goals, but you may want to start with a couple of 1 gallon
    batches until you get some of the basics mastered. It is always a heart breaker to spend months
    babying a fe...

    I like to get the "unfiltered" juices, try a healthfood store if there is one near you. Some
    brands even come in 1 gal glass jugs that are great fermenters.SpamDog

    The guys over at www.basicbrewing.com interviewed people from the makers of both Star san, and
    the makers of Iodofor back in 2007. It's worth a listen, they talk a lot about contact time,
    dilution and...
