  • Posted in thread: Reusing yeast? Quick answer needed... on 10-26-2011 at 08:03 PM
    should be fine as long as the yeast style is similar to the beer you are brewing now. Obviously
    if you have some serious suspicions that the beer you are bottling is "off" in some way and you
    have new...

    Thats all very interesting info regarding the osmophilic yeast. I'll definitely have to scour
    the internets and learn some more about them. Like I said I never normally boil my mead, just
    gently heat ...

  • Posted in thread: Lychee mead??? on 08-17-2011 at 05:31 AM
    Anyone tried it? I think the flavor and aroma of Lychee would go really well with a mead. Need
    to get on the ball about it before lychee season is officially over here in S. Florida. Looking
    for some ...

    from the beekeepers handbook:"sugar tolerant, or osmophilic, yeast spores, under high moisture
    conditions, are able to germinate in honey and metabolize its sugars...probably all honeys
    contain osmoph...

    160 for 10 minutes actually comes from Ken Schramm's book. The honey I get is pretty raw, we
    have a lot of good honey suppliers here in S. Florida so I don't have to buy the crap they sell
    at the home...

    yeah better bottles are BPA free. As for heating, I've always heated my must. I usually bring
    it to about 160 F for about 10 minutes, but I didn't think the GF could handle regulating the
    temperature,...

    Oh and thankfully my girlfriend isn't too traumatized to give it another go. Really she just
    made one vital misstep and that was forgetting to cool, even adding the cold water to the
    carboy first woul...

    Hey guys, thanks for all the advice and info. Im glad everyone got a chuckle out of it, I
    personally laugh every time I think about it. No offense meant to any of the lady brewers out
    there, just tryi...

    So heres my situation, I left home a few months ago for my work season which lasts about 10
    weeks. I had a bunch of ingredients arrive for a batch of ginger mead that I was planning on
    brewing but sin...

  • Posted in thread: Barrell aging for Mead? on 06-10-2011 at 05:24 PM
    from my reading the smaller the barrel the greater the liquid to surface ratio. So a 5 gallon
    barrel is going to provide sufficient flavor at a faster rate than a full 60 gallon barrel.
    Apparently wit...
