    Just bottled my first 2 gallon batch of this. Since I'm a bit impatient and didn't want to wait
    for the possible bitterness from the orange peels to peter out, I peeled my oranges before
    adding them i...

    Ok, sorry to raise this thing from the dead yet again, but I was looking for answers on this
    today - found this thread first, and found this extremely useful link second: the most
    official thing I ca...

    Yeah, the one week is probably shorter than it should be, I'd give just about any beer at least
    two weeks. With bottle carbonation it's impossible to get rid of sediment altogether, you can
    reduce it ...

    Ok, a little background - Got a Mr. Beer kit for christmas, it came with a pale ale extract and
    all the other goodies to brew your first batch. I noticed that the ingredients provided would
    only put t...

    Not really a boo boo. That's more of the older method of mead making. Most folks these days
    aren't heating honey at all, let alone boiling....Well, if it's store bought honey then it's
    probably alread...

    Maybe for a batch that small, a careful pour would be a better way to transfer into a
    secondary. My true curiosity is what would you use for a secondary?To respond to your question,
    my (limited) under...

    Are you planning on racking to a secondary?Not sure, that hose on there is pretty tiny, not
    sure what I'd do for a filter on it... You think it'd be a good idea since I used the bread
    yeast though?

  • Posted in thread: Questions on my first batch on 11-24-2011 at 03:20 PM
    Oh yeah, definitely plan on making bigger batches :D

  • Posted in thread: Questions on my first batch on 11-23-2011 at 06:17 PM
    Gotcha, yeah it's being stored in a cabinet at room temperature. I'd consider finished as
    "ready to drink". I'm not worried about it being done quickly or anything, just curious
