Well, thought I should at least share my failure on here to hopefully prevent someone else from
trying what I did.I've been reading about "mashing in a bag" and other similar ways to try to

hey guys, doing my first Mead tonight.It's actually a "hydromel" I guess. Adding 2.5lbs of
Orange Blossom Honey to 2 gallons of water. OG should be around 1.044 from what I've seen, but

Nobody said that you have to make 5 gallon batches. I brew on my stovetop (not a glass top) and

A - you should be fine. The first time I did a starter I remember coming downstairs the next

I suppose too high of temp and you'll denature pretty much anything. Limit the exposure and
you'll still end up with something. Would be what I'd think happened here.That's my assessment
