Awesome! I found a few bottles stashed away that were 4 years old. They were heavier on the
carb, but other than that were amazing! The molasses really shined, as the hops had dropped

Not really. Calcium is lost in the mash due to reactions there, but they are beneficial. The
other ions are fairly soluble and make it through the mash fairly well. Don't worry about those

As said above, take a gravity measurement to see if it has been fermenting. And there is a
difference between fermentation and seeing airlock activity.Infected/Drinkable; only you can
tell. Smell the ...

Awesome, thanks for the reply. My NaCl additions tend to be very small, and splitting it

Preferably, you keep the entire bine up until it dies down to the crown. This will allow the
plant to send its energy to the crown for next year.New to all of this and the terminology; so

batch. I aim for about a 1.098, but with some efficiency issues due to the large batch you can
have a 1.090 ...

I have not. I have played around with different honeys in beers, but I started off making mead
