    I like my JOAM on the rocks. Enjoying some right now!

    There are a few schools of thought when doing a braggot. 1 method is to brew a traditional mead
    in one carboy and an ale or other beer in another and then blend the two afterwards.Another
    school of th...

    Camden should not be bad to add if recombining the jars into a new fermentation chamber. That
    just helps prevent bacterial infection along with possible oxidation. The sorbate is not what
    you want to ...

    Yeast choice is key when you try to undertake a mead with no racking and going strait to bottle
    aging. The best yeast I have found for brilliantly clear meads in a short time frame of 3-5
    weeks is Lon...

    I think that is what I need to do. Later in the year when the local orchards are picking apples
    I need to try and see which ones I can get in on that and see if they can press me some fresh
    cider.

    That may be a good yeast for Cysers. I could see its potential. London ESB tends to throw a lot
    of fruity esters that I hope compliment the style. It has worked well in many other recipes I
    have tried...

    RC 212 in my experience is a nutrient hog. It is very dependent on needing more nutrients
    compared to the other lalvin brothers 71b-1112, k1v-1116, ec-1118... In fruit musts it is not
    too much trouble...

    Yes give this a full 90 days until racking. Hopefully your bread yeast was tolerant and
    fermented more sugars than normal. Getting into the 14% - 15% ABV range. That way the residual
    sugar content is ...
