Well, even using 71b, I am using 1.5lbs of honey so I assume the fermentation would finish
fairly quickly, 3 or 4 weeks should be enough. I should only need to rack twice, once on the
fruit and once o...

I am wanting to create a low abv mead, probably a melomel, that my wife will like. Below is the

fruit in th...

I was hoping for a bit stronger orange flavor also. I used 15 cuties clementines for a 3 gal
