    Thanks for the replies guys. As for having tried it before, I have. I have made one 1-gallon
    batch. It was a touch sweet, but then I like sweet meads. The only issue I had with it was the
    pithiness th...

    I apologize in advance if this question has already been asked in this thread, but I
    didn’t have time to go back and read through 30+ pages. I’m curious about scaling
    up the recipe. The re...

    I have never backsweetened any meads that I have made - someone else will have to weigh in on
    that, I just know that 3 - 4 months is way to early for a mead to be ready to drink.

    If you made this in Nov it is 3 - 4 months old - way too young yet, what it needs is time.

    Just brew a strong tea then let it cool and add to primary. Something about the tannins helps
    keep the yeast healthy. Mead does take a long time to mellow and mature, but I've found mine
    quite drinkab...

    This stuff was featured on the brewmaster episode this week.As I was reading through this
    thread, that is exactly what I was thinking. Dogfish Head's Bitches Brew is a blend of Sam
    Calagione's take on...

  • Posted in thread: New season honey on 07-22-2010 at 02:22 PM
    I have been all over the net looking for a apiary from central Tejas who will sell straight to
    me, but am having no luck at all. We have two full time honey distributors within a 30 mile
    radius, so I ...

    You can use a fridge, but you're going to need a temp controller. You can get one from most
    online homebrewing supply shops.

    I don't really have anything to add to the thread regarding the original question. But I do
    have a question of my own. I often see acid blend and tannins as part of recipes, but I'm not
    sure what the ...

  • Posted in thread: Where to Buy Mead in TX/Online on 05-25-2010 at 04:11 PM
    I also live in Texas and haven't really found a great selection of mead anywhere. That said, we
    do get Redstone in Texas which has some OK meads - all on the sweet side, but still OK. They
    are distrib...
