    Has anybody every just left their hydrometer or thermometer in the primary during fermentation?
    I am trying this with my thermometer now...cold season is here and the temp of my house really
    swings so...

  • Posted in thread: Back sweetening & vanilla bean addition on 11-18-2015 at 11:45 PM
    That sounds like an awesome plan Jeri! I think I will just use 1 bean then, but I have read
    else where that some people have used up to 6 for 5 gal. The addition of more fruit is a great
    idea as well....

    Im planning on back sweetening my DRY wild berry mead and adding some vanilla bean. I guess I'm
    wondering if my plan of attack is adequate. ..RECIPEused 15 ĺbs honey,and 3.5lbs frozen
    wild berry ...

  • Posted in thread: Topping off JAOM mead... on 10-25-2015 at 01:31 AM
    Well I just stumbled upon this thread and thought an update might be warranted. You were right,
    that was most definitely not my only batch of mead. I've made several successful 1 gal batches,
    and am n...

  • Posted in thread: Late honey additions & abv on 10-24-2015 at 06:18 PM
    Sounds like a plan! I think I'll add close to 3 more lbs of honey today, with some
    nutrient/energizer and see what gravity that gives me. Thanks for the advice, this is my first
    5 gal batch (have done...

  • Posted in thread: Late honey additions & abv on 10-24-2015 at 05:49 PM
    I think that there's a bit of a misunderstanding, I don't have a fermentation issue. All I want
    to do is bump up the alcohol without making it a sweet mead. I have heard that step feeding
    honey will d...

  • Posted in thread: Late honey additions & abv on 10-24-2015 at 03:36 AM
    Hey guys, when is it too late to add honey to bump up the abv? I would prefer a semi-sweet to
    dry mead but I think it's on it's way to a sweet mead thus far. 1 week ago I used 15 lbs of
    honey, 1.5 kg ...

  • Posted in thread: recipe help...misc grains and hops left over... on 07-15-2012 at 05:18 PM
    Thanks so much for the recipe! I ended up brewing this yesterday (with a few small changes).
    First BIAB went somewhat smooth, some kinks have to be worked out though. Can't wait until I
    get to taste!!...

  • Posted in thread: recipe help...misc grains and hops left over... on 06-04-2012 at 03:23 AM
    Hey guys, I have 1 all grain brew beneath my belt (with help from a friend) and I have some
    grains and hops left over, plus my lhbs was having a sale so I grabbed some misc grains and
    hops. Maybe some...

  • Posted in thread: Ginger beer fermenting instantly??? on 04-23-2012 at 02:58 AM
    I agree with you 100%, I guess I am just calling it ginger beer for lack of better words. I
    guess ginger ale might be closer, but that word "ale" throws me off as well. Maybe next time
    Ill throw in so...
