  • Posted in thread: Strawberry Wine - Need to bring the acid down on 07-01-2016 at 01:52 PM
    Thanks! I did know about wanting to get the fruit out, so I pulled it last night. The
    fermentation and pectic enzyme did an amazing job of reducing the fruit. 26 pounds of
    strawberries reduced down to...

    Hello! I've been making beer for about 6 years, and gotten pretty decent at it. However,
    between work and kids, I don't have as much time anymore. It seemed like wine might have a
    shorter brew day, an...

  • Posted in thread: Water report for my well on 07-03-2012 at 11:19 PM
    Just got the Ward Lab report back for my well water. Of course, it came at 6PM on July 3rd, and
    I'm brewing tomorrow on the 4th when I won't be able to get anything to modify the water. Up
    until now, ...

  • Posted in thread: What bag do you use for BIAB? on 06-22-2012 at 01:37 PM
    Andy,Yes, you will be alright. Clipping it to the side of the strainer basket is no different
    really than using a drawstring. The only thing I will caution you on is to be careful removing
    the bag fro...

  • Posted in thread: What bag do you use for BIAB? on 06-21-2012 at 02:59 PM
    I use a custom BIAB bag I made from Voile curtain material. Mine has a draw string for use with
    my massive 15 gallon kettle and strainer basket. If sewing isn't your bag (pun intended) just
    lay the ma...

    I tried, but I couldn't get it to show up well enough. The layers were very distinct, like
    mixing oil and water, and they were like that for almost a month. No idea what happened.

  • Posted in thread: Sparkolloid question (multiple applications of it) on 06-12-2012 at 02:23 PM
    Just to update... I cold-crashed the batch for almost 2 weeks at 33*. No result. The mead was
    in 3 layers. The top 4 inches perfectly clear, a 1 inch hazy layer, and the remainder was
    totally opaque, ...

  • Posted in thread: Sparkolloid question (multiple applications of it) on 06-01-2012 at 04:25 PM
    I'll keep that in mind too. Will all this messing around (cold crash, Sparkolloid, maybe
    bentonite) have any effect on the flavor, aside from removing the yeast that I didn't want
    anyway? When I do be...

  • Posted in thread: Sparkolloid question (multiple applications of it) on 06-01-2012 at 02:23 AM
    I'll give cold crashing a shot. I have the technology. If that doesn't do it, any suggestions
    for Plan C?

  • Posted in thread: Sparkolloid question (multiple applications of it) on 05-31-2012 at 08:14 PM
    My first mead has been sitting around for a year now. 3 months in primary, then 9 months in
    secondary, in a temp-controlled 65 degree freezer.I've been very patient, and haven't messed
    with it at all....
