    I just found something that removes the sulphites from wines before drinking for people who are
    allergic. checked out their web site, and they're sparse on details about what the product is,
    a MAJOR ...

    Update on prickly pear availability. It turns out the plants can grow outdoors in most of New
    England. All they need is a sunny spot with plenty if drainage. Protecting them with a later of
    hay probab...

    I bought them. I live In New England and doubt there's anyone growing them locally unless it's
    in a greenhouse. A few stores carry them in the Fall.I generally blanch them in gently boiling
    water for ...

    I just bottled the most recent batch. It could have done with another racking so I only ended
    up bottling two of the three gallons. I gave my wife a taste and she replied with "Hell yes,

  • Posted in thread: corn tortillas in mash? on 06-18-2011 at 06:57 PM
    I suspect that would be a bit like adding flaked corn to the mash. The preservatives may be an
    issue for the yeast. A high pitching rate should help with that. Pitching onto the yeast cake

    recommend adding ...

    Well, you might need to pitch new yeast if it didn't survive the heat.

  • Posted in thread: National Meadmakers Day on 07-22-2009 at 04:44 PM
    I'm going with the AHA recipe, but I'm using Agave Nectar in place of the honey. This is due in
    part to the fact that I have a large quantity of agave nectar on hand and can't justify another
    honey pu...

  • Posted in thread: What should a fermenting mead taste like? on 07-22-2009 at 04:34 PM
    I started two meads on the same day, with the same base honey. To one I added just the
    nutrients recommended in the "Complete Mead Maker" recipe I used as a base. To the other, I
    also added a few kumq...
