Posted in thread: How fast does gravity drop? Inaccurate hydro reading. on 11-18-2014 at 12:12 AM
I'm not sure how to get a better OG then just to mix it complete. As far as fermentation I have
had a 1.105 barley wine falls to 1.020 using S04 in just two days.
Posted in thread: How long to age melomel on 11-14-2014 at 12:00 AM
That's really good advice. That's how I realized it was much better to let it age. It's nice to
put some of it in smaller bottles it makes it easier to sample.

Oh no it's fine I'm using and Orson Welles futuristic yeast. Ya...... It will do up to 36%

I took a sample of this concoction to the local brew shop. I do belive if I were in prison or
on the battle field in 325 BC it would be greatly appreciated. I don't know if I keep drinking
it because ...
Posted in thread: Stuck fermentation, or just typical 71B-1122? on 11-11-2014 at 03:36 AM
Yeah 4.0 is just fine for pH. I used 1122 on my last batch. OG 1.141 and it finished at 1.036
(13.99 ABV) I've not used this yeast before but I know it will get real close to 14%. Has

Well it did exactly that, dropped 2 points to 1.018 (11.4 ABV) and that is what I wanted. Will
cold crash it for 3 months and then bottle it.
Posted in thread: Belgain candy syrup? on 11-11-2014 at 01:41 AM
Well it only got to 1.105 but did finish at 1.018. I guess I will let you all know if the candy
syrup was a good addition, in about a year.

I started a mead last year. It was 14 pounds of buckwheat honey, 12 pounds of clover. Over a
period of 6 months I added 10 pounds of spiced inverted sugar, 18 pounds of tart cherries, 8
pounds of swee...

Yes it was three packs in a gallon of 1.036 starter. You can already see about a half an inch
of yeast cake in the 1 gallon and about an inch in the 3 gallon container already sitting at
the bottom. T...

Like I said there was plenty of yeast picked up in the secondary. And that yeast is continuing
