  • Posted in thread: Pineapple ginger mead, acid question on 07-07-2014 at 01:28 PM
    Back sweetening is definitely your best bet. I made a tropical mead with pineapple oranges and
    coconut and the dryness combined with the acid made it almost undrinkable. Just be careful when
    you add t...

    Quick followup: I started 3 meads in the style of BOMM. I did a 5 gallon BOMM to the letter
    (1388), then a 1 gallon catawba pyment (wyeast 1388), and a 4 gallon LoganBerry melomel (wyeast
    3463). I sta...

    Loveofrose,Do usually bottle at a month without any racking? The reason I ask is because mine
    is at 1 month now. I plan on letting it age a bit yet before bottling. I am in the process of
    moving so I ...

    One of the guys at ABH said it tasted like a horse blanket.Ha. Well I tasted the honey and
    thought it was quite delicious. Definitely a strong and complex flavor but I didn't taste horse
    blanket. Mayb...

    Let me know what the buckwheat contributes. I've alway been a bit wary of it.Will do. I know
    someone who swears by it as an accent. It definitely has a potent and complex taste, but I
    could see it bei...

    I just made a batch of this last night. I added a little more honey than suggested but not
    much. I did 2.5lbs of orange blossom and a quarter pound of buckwheat for complexity. Excited
    to see how this...

    Just bottled this tonight after about 5 months in the jug. Had a little left over to sip on. It
    is pretty delicious except I can taste a little bitterness that tastes like the pith. I think
    next time ...

    I made a 3 gallon batch of this about 3 weeks ago. I used all apple juice and apple juice
    concentrate to get me to a SG of 1.066. It fermented down to 1.010. I plan on kegging this, so
    I transferred t...

    I just got a cider press this year, our bees have really done a good job on our apple trees so
    we should get enough apples to experiment with. A Bochet csyer is on our list. Do you still get
    the apple...
