A hydrometer reading of 1.000 at 70°F will correct to an actual SG of about 1.001 for a
hydrometer calibrated at 60°F (most hydrometers are calibrated at 60°F). A SG of 1.001 does not
mean that fermen...

In accordance with the 2004 BJCP Style Guidelines, a mead made with maple syrup would be
entered into the "Open CategoryMead" style (26C). Yes, you could ferment a maple syrup / water
delution (you mu...

I too brew in 6 Gal batches (Beer, Cider and Mead). The same ratio holds true. For your priming
sugar, I would use a little more in the range of 5.0 to 5.3 ounces. To have really sparkling

LOL, I think my cheatin' cider batch might be botched. It smells like a sulphur fart coming out
of the airlock. And its fermenting so fast, my whole kitchen smells like a nasty fart. I had to

The introduction of oxygen to any beer, mead, cider or wine after the yeast have completed the
aerobic portion of their life cycle can cause oxidation and a stale, cardboard, winy,papery or

Yea I think I've heard the same thing, organic unpasteurized cider is the way to go. I would
