Oh, and just as an assurance that it was actually good, my friends didn't say "erm, yes, quite
nice" like they do with the dodgy batches, they drank it. All of it!
Posted in thread: Freeze Concentrating (Fortifying) Mead on 06-10-2012 at 06:19 AM
I've done this.I had a spiced mead with an OG of 1.129 at a volume of 18 litres. It was
flavoured with oranges, ginger, vanilla, coriander and a couple of other things. I left it to
ferment for six mo...

At 1.022 (and very young) it is semi-sweet, but the main flavour is definitely 'burnt stuff'
I'm wondering if I scorched the honey now.I do have some of the honey left, so I'll make a
slurry of 1118, ...

I was hoping it would come out very fry, with almost full conversion, as I was only aiming for
10% abv. The sample I drew tastes too sweet at the moment. And of burning.... I suppose if I

product). I ha...
Posted in thread: A light, low gravity mead on 02-29-2012 at 01:40 PM
Hi all!I've made a good few beers now, and midway through last year I made my first mead and my
first braggot. Neither is at all subtle, and both are to be drunk in limited quantities lest
you fall ov...
Posted in thread: The braggot experiment on 02-29-2012 at 01:21 PM
I made a braggot a few months ago and was very pleased with the results. It's definitely a big
one though. 3.5kg amber extract, 2.5kg honey, hallertau hops, sweet orange peel. It had a
gravity of 1.08...

Remember - if using gelatine you want to use it towards the end of the brewing phase, a day or

Posted in thread: Is Stella Artois crap to anyone else? on 02-16-2012 at 11:44 AM
I always find it funny when Stella is amongst the premium imported beers here in Australia.
Back home (UK) we called it "wife beater" and generally avoided the stuff.For a generic lager
it's ok, and a...
