    Upon further tasting, I'd say the cinnamon isn't subtle. It's definitely evident. I think it
    actually needs to mellow a bit.A few of the bottles will get opened and consumed over the
    summer, but I pla...

    Anyway, Glad to hear that the cinnamon survived a little. Do you think it will get stronger
    with age, or weaker?I'm not sure, but I'm hoping with some aging, everything about the mead

    I finally bottled the mead last night, and I was disappointed with the results. It's not

    understand better how the dextrose the kits suggest adding really affect the beer and how to
    guess at ABV ...

    The short answer is yes. The long answer is read www.howtobrew.com as you're lacking in a lot
    of the basics. And just so it's said, add more malt extract, not dextrose. Your beer will thank

    example, i...

    I use bottled water, so I don't worry about boiling it first.Chris

    I live in Canada. Does anyone know if Austin ships outside the U.S.?Chris

    understand better how to read the recipes I see here and elsewhere. :)Chris
