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....

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...

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

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...

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

Thanks so much for the recipe! I ended up brewing this yesterday (with a few small changes).

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...

I went off of a recipe that I seen on youtube. She said it would be quite sharp, but
