    You don't NEED anything more than that other than some additives (ie. yeast nutrient,
    energizer, pectic enzyme, tannins, etc...). These are often listed in recipes so you can buy
    them as the recipe ca...

    with meads you loose some flavor and color of the fruit to the primary fermentation. If you
    want a more fruity flavor then add the fruits to secondary. I like to add at least some fruit
    to primary tho...

    Thank you so much for your input! I really appreciate it! I definitely learned alot.Out of
    curiosity, why add the black tea for body? My understanding was that to get a heavier body

    I got some input on how to use up some blueberries to experiment with melomels. I have been
    reading about how most people crush the fruit and leave it with the must to ferment together in
    the primary....

    I have had this problem too. I actually had a batch that I let bulk age for almost a year that
    had the same problem. Wine was completely fine. I too have since switched to using cheap vodka
    because it...

    Faced with your horrible situation, I'd try 3 lbs of blueberries and 2 pounds of honey for a
    gallon of product. It will end up on the dry side, but the blueberries should come
    through.Hopefully I will...

    Last year I purchased a 5 gallon pail of honey from a local beekeeper. I used up 1 gallon with
    my first go at mead. Just yesterday my father-in-law showed up with 17 gallons of freshly
    picked blueberr...

    Man, Sears isn't the only one. Freezers and fridges are buyer beware once you start doing
    anything to them. That's why Craigslist freezers are a good idea. Or, if you are buying new,
    just getting a pr...

    Except the compressor runs a heck of a a lot more when you are trying to maintain a higher temp
