    I am planning on making a 1 gallon Margarita mead and want to know if it makes any difference
    if I just make a basic mead & add my juices/flavorings at secondary or can I add them on brew

    Just found this thread. I'm a former HBer. Used to live in IL where I could pitch yeast almost
    anytime in my basement. Kinda tough in SoFL. My neighbor started brewing about a year ago, got
