    Update: The SG of my cherry juice seems to be approximately 1.100, which seems a bit high, but
    the actual sugar content of it is pretty significant, so I guess that's not out of bounds.With
    that in mi...

    I suppose you don't keg, but I have added 1/2 gallon of fruit juice and racked beer on top
    before. (It was my priming sugar and flavoring.) I have found that the best fruit flavor comes
    from using K M...

    9 lbs of DME is a lot, that should be a 1.080 beer, before you add the juice.That's what I was
    thinking too, and though I have no problem with a hefty beer, I think I'd rather have something
    a little ...

    Awesome, I'd have expected a Costco product to have preservatives in it.I was pleasantly
    surprised, too. It was ~$6.50 for 2 1/2-gallon jugs, too, so if I turn out something tasty with
    it, I'll certai...

    What kind of preservatives are in the cherry juice?None, it's 100% juice, free of anything
    else.

    For yeast, I was thinking something Belgian, hopefully something that'll yield nice fruity
    esters. Haven't fully committed to anything until I see what the shop has in stock.For
    adjuncts/spices, I was...

    So it's hot here in MN and I'm trying to come up with a good recipe for a cherry ale made with
    some of this wonderful cherry juice I recently picked up at Costco, not to mention I don't
    really want to...

    I'm going to brew this after I've moved, and I noticed the idea to add coffee to this one,
    which sounds amazing to me. Anyone have a recommendation for how much would be an appropriate
    amount? I've al...

  • Posted in thread: Mead in Primary for 15 months. Can I save it? on 08-25-2010 at 08:19 PM
    For the record (I found my recipe), it was sitting on a variety of spices and the yeast (the
    exact strain of which has been lost to smudging on my recipe sheet), so I'm just a bit
    concerned about over...

  • Posted in thread: Mead in Primary for 15 months. Can I save it? on 08-24-2010 at 07:29 PM
    Long story short, I started a small batch of Christmas mead late last summer and put the 1 gal
    primary in my parents' basement to perk away. After a slow start, I decided it probably needed
    quite a wh...
