    well the last sample I pulled wasn't spicy at all from what I remember. This batch is actually
    still in the carboy and hasn't been bottle up yet, and I honestly don't think I've pulled a
    sample in abo...

    I'm also generally not a fan of aged beers(personal opinion), but the beers I've made mistakes
    with(eg: over oaked a batch once), letting it age definitely will mellow out the mistakes.

    Unfortunately, I dumped it. Next time I will set some aside and wait to see what happens.One
    of the biggest lessons I've learned from this board is to never dump a batch. Tuck it away in
    the back of ...

    Man, careful with buckwheat honey, I know it sounds good, but it can have a powerful (and not
    good) after taste when fermented. Also, no need to boil the honey (am interpreting you schedule

    ABV really doesn't make a difference in bottle choice. The only gotcha I could think of that
    would cause you issues with wine bottles would be if the yeast aren't done and you get a
    renewed fermentati...

    So I was digging the Christmas decoration boxes out of the closet, and stumbled across a few
    bottles of this I had purposely tucked away to forget about(which worked because I did forget
    about them). ...

    Well the fans definitely seem to be spinning fast, though I'll admit I've never looked at them
    prior to today, but I can't imagine them spinning much faster.I'll double check the compressor
    tomorrow, ...

    So my kegerator finally died on my a couple weeks ago, and naturally it happened while my wife
    was in the hospital having a baby, which meant I came home to a freezer full of thawed meat
    :(Anyway, I'm...

    I don't see any reason he couldn't get it to ferment with wild airborne yeast, the only catch
    is going to be what it tastes like. This is the same process brewers use to make lambic beers.
    They just e...

  • Posted in thread: How long before mead stops tasting like cough syrup? on 11-12-2012 at 01:11 AM
    give it atleast a year. I made a very sweet metheglin a little over a year ago and the cough
    syrup tasted has all faded and it's very tasty. It just needs time, just put it in the closet
    and forget ab...
