    1.072 just now... Considering the current gravity it's surprisingly not cloyingly sweet (the
    alcohol, tannins and acidity are balancing it quite nicely right now... hopefully that
    continues when it ge...

    You mention the sg is around 1.160, then you said earlier the starting sg was 1.120, which is
    it? I don't think yeast will work in a must that is 1.160. An aside, I always add 2 cups of
    lemon juice.I ...

    1.086 this morning. Nice acidity, noticeable alcohol (of course) but not boozy or fuselly.Still
    making slow, steady progress... :)

    I'm going to need proof on taking 1.160 to 1.000. That's 21% and not trivial. Especially with a
    yeast that has a 14% ABV tolerance. Sure, I've seen yeast push and extra 2% or so, but not 7%.
    Your 115 ...

    I'm assuming the nuclear option is champagne yeast (which would be my contingency plan if the
    D47 craps out on me), but I'm curious as well. :)I didn't realize yeast would get stressed by
    so much suga...

    Well, I have a tendency to mess things up, so... :)I did overshoot my OG a bit (I was targeting
    1.150 - 1.155), but let me explain where I came up with that: I'm counting on the 12# of
    blueberries to ...

    So this blueberry mel has gone from 1.160 to 1.102 in a little over a week. Not terribly slow,
    but at this point I'm not sure what to do about the cap as I thought it would be further along
    at this po...

    I got the 2:1 Fermaid-to-DAP ratio originally from Curt Stock and then also from Steve Piatz's
    book. Hi-test's honey spreadsheet calls for an even ratio, added in three decreasing amounts.

    You should also be stirring your mead a couple of times per day to degas (excessive CO2 is not
    healthy for yeast); I use a wine degasser/stirrer attached to my drill, but you can just use a
    large sani...
