Brood add little flavor, full grown bees however... Even better if you put live ones in a bag
and shake them to make'em angry. That adds kick!Lol never actually done that. But I forget
where but I rem...

That is correct for most thing. Just divide by 5. But for simplicity sake I would just to 1tsp
in 1/3cup hot water. But make sure to get that water to boiling and I use a blender or such to

My batch was cloudy as ever still. Refuses to clear. I think there is still some fermentation

I bottled 2/3 of the 1st batch and blended the second in to fill the space. I can't believe how

Posted in thread: What is better juice or fruit on 04-25-2016 at 02:01 PM
I could see a juiced fruit be easier than whole/crushed fruit in the way of racking losses and
such. But the two products will be different. Like for instance in pyments using grapes. With

Kome-Koji will convert about 4 times the rice by weight. 200g is about a cup right? So 4-5 cups
