    Update on the mead:Alright, we've been fermenting for about 9 days. Fermentation was very
    active, with about 1 bubble per second the entire time. After fermentation started I added more
    energizer and ...

    Wow.So, I added Yeast Nutrient again as directed, and BAM, it was like Mentos in a Diet Coke
    bottle. Literally erupted. It was a mess, but rather than risk contaminating I just popped the

    Aaand sometime in the last 3 hours it's started bubbling away! Less than 17 hours after the

    nutrient/energizer ...

    some basic, tasty IPA and Pilsner recipes. I've got a few recipe books but they tend to be
    filled with sp...
