    Hello everyone! I finished oaking a 5g batch of Cherry Melomel last week. I added sorbate and
    K-meta to stabalize. I'm pretty sure its ready to bottle, but i wanted to get everyone's take
    on when the ...

    Is it safe to add water? If your instruments and your water are clean then sure, it is as safe
    as your cleanliness. I wonder why you want to top up though. Are you looking for a diluted
    product or are...

    Hello all!I have a 5 gallon batch of Cherry/Raspberry melomel brewing right now. Pitched it in
    October, and last racked in December. During the 3 times i racked on and off the fruit, i

    I'm pretty sure the egg is for clarifying but needless to say I may leave that ingredient out
    and just pitch some good modern-day yeast.No no no! You've gotta follow that recipe to a 'T'.
    Or else it w...

    This is not necessarily true. Some meads will age fine with sulfite. Sorbate doesn't really
    help with aging - it just helps to keep fermentation from restarting. Sulfite actually acts as
    an anti-oxida...

    I guess i should have read this thread before i posted my new one. :)I had a 5 gallon batch of
    Cherry Melomel that I made last year. I only have 2 bottles left, but how long will they last
    since i did...

    If you're not sweetening the mead, then you can use one campden tablet per gallon (or 1/4
    teaspoon of the powder dissolved in some water for 5 gallons), and bottle right away.Thanks for
    the quick repl...

    I have my K-Meta and Sorbate ready to go. My question is this:How much of each should i use per
    gallon? AND how long after you add the stabilizers should you wait until bottling? Thanks!

    Hey everyone!I plan on making a series of 1 gallon fruit batches using the same methods as the
    J.A.O. recipe. My question is; is this smart? For the batches using blueberries, raspberries,
    etc.. shoul...
