  • Posted in thread: Help with high gravity (~1.19) cyser on 04-09-2013 at 08:40 PM
    I want it sweeter, for sure. And I imagined it to be a "sipper" more than a "full glass" mead.
    Maybe I will just keep it how it is, pitch Lalvin EC-1118 and let it ferment for a few months,
    transfer i...

    I created 1 gallon of cyser weighing in at a whopping 1.190. I split the batch up into two
    gallons, putting each in its own one-gallon jug to allow for head space during fermentation. I
    pitched a pa...

  • Posted in thread: How to go about all-grain 1 gal Graff on 12-24-2012 at 07:12 AM
    I want to do some experimenting with graff. My plan is to do a bunch of different 1 gallon
    batches (using different beer styles for the wort). Based on scaling the 5 gal recipe down to 1
    gal, I would ...

  • Posted in thread: Sweet mead question: how to stop the yeast on 10-01-2012 at 11:21 PM
    Sorbate (or campden, for that matter) will not stop fermentation. It is used to keep
    fermentation from restarting. Sorbate keeps the yeast from reproducing. An active fermentation
    contains millions an...

    Just a quick suggestion for future reference - if you cold crash, then rack the mead off
    leaving behind as much of the yeast as you possibly can, then hit it with the sorbate, you'll
    have a much bette...

  • Posted in thread: Over diluting JB-Weld? on 10-01-2012 at 09:39 PM
    Thanks for the reply!Maybe next time I try this I will use your suggestion, but I am already
    invested in these two sticks so I am curious as to what to expect. I really hope I didn't just
    waste 100$ o...

    Hey everyone,Yup, it's another heat stick thread. I went with this build but went for the L
    shaped pipe instead of straight: diluted the JB-weld to make it quite liquid so I could por
    it down the tu...

  • Posted in thread: Pasteurized v Non-Pasteurized: a few questions on 10-01-2012 at 04:36 PM
    So pasteurized or not, I don't need to treat the juice in any way?

  • Posted in thread: Pasteurized v Non-Pasteurized: a few questions on 09-30-2012 at 10:38 PM
    I have seen a lot of options for cider/apple juice popping up at the farmers market and local
    grocery stores. I want to make a hard a cider (graff actually) and I am curious what I should
    be looking f...

  • Posted in thread: Advice with acid addition at bottling on 09-28-2012 at 12:25 AM
    I am ready to bottle my peach/raspberry saison, but I am debating acid additions. When reading
    about adding fruit when brewing, I remember reading from multiple sources (usually forums
    posts) that aci...
