  • Nothing...it's too damn hot to ferment right nowrnrneta: Hot damn! It's October, so it's finally cool enough to ferment something. Started a straight mead last night (10/06/15). I added a couple of boiled overripe bananas to use as nutrients. I'm going to try to do this without any additives. When SG gets low, I'll add honey back to 1.02, let that ferment out, rinse repeat. Want final mead to have ending 1.02 so I'll keep step feeding honey until the yeast gives up.

    everything toge...
