Carefully move the keg to an elevated spot. Release pressure and open the top. Keep the top on
for awhile and let things settle. Then open the keg. Stick in your racking cane or auto-siphon
and fill a...

The trick I did with my Raspberry BOMM was to make a regular Orange Blossom honey BOMM just
like loveofrose says but I added pectin at the start. Then after three weeks of fermenting in
the primary, I...

Is the second batch another gallon? Sounds like it if it's exactly the same. What are the

I was going to make this too but haven't yet got around to it. Use a clean and sanitized 2
gallon bucket to do a primary fermentation as Singinchef undoubtedly did. You can stir that
must up well to m...

So really you could consider this in a way a BOMM success with a different yeast than Wyeast
1388. True maybe the saison flavor might not be as clean as one would get with 1388 yeast but
it's a smooth...

Welcome to your new digs Bray! Hope your brewing/mead making set up there goes well for you. My
last T'ej ended up a little too hot because I used D47 yeast in addition to the gesho. I should
