    How important is it to use wort? Wouldn't using sugar water be just as effective? I used sugar,
    water, and grated ginger to capture yeast to use for ginger beer and the soda turned out very
    sour. I st...

    Thanks for the replies!I'm going to clear 1 gallon and compare. Thanks!SuperKleer or
    sparkalloid. I've dealt with both. For me superkleer seems to leave an after taste that, so
    far, only I can taste. ...

    My BOMM (first mead!) is about 2 months old and turned out really well. I used honey from my
    own bee hives, which is super dark and has lots of pollen. I've racked it 3 times and cold
    crashed it once ...

    Thanks for the post and info. Yes, I was mostly interested in wild Brett strains initially, but
    also wanted an easy way to distinguish between Brett and Sacc since my initial collection
    plates just ha...

    I did the experiment and plated yeast from the final fermented product. I got a good diversity
    of yeast based on bromocresol green and cycloheximide platings. I picked a few of the cyc+
    colonies and g...

    There was an interesting article in Science mag a few weeks back: bottom line is that
    increasing extracellular K+ and pH increases alcohol tolerance. They supplemented the media
    with 48mM KCl and 2mM...

    Thanks for the info. Degassed about every 1.5-2 hours yesterday and couldn't believe the amount
    of C02 being produced. I guess that happens when the OG is 1.1!

    Is a daily degassing enough? It seems like during the first few days of fermentation the mead
    could use quite a few degassings. Any thoughts or suggestions? I started a 3 gallon batch
    yesterday and ha...

    Thank you guys. Exactly what I was looking for.

    Has anyone had luck isolating wild yeast strains from honey? We started 2 bees colonies this
    summer and I was curious to see what might be the raw honey we harvested. I took 1 tbsp of raw
    honey and mi...
