Here's a rather random question related to this thread. I'm getting ready for a trip to
Mongolia and was reading about the local cuisine. A very common alcoholic beverage there is
Airag which is ferme...

Redhawke- Sounds like you had a great trip. I'm planning on some time in the north Georgia
mountains this fall. I ended up going with a pretty straight forward mead with a little ginger
and orange pee...

well, I have so many ideas about what to try. I have just over a gallon of honey so I'll just

Redhawke- That would be great. You're one of the first to know what fruit I'm talking about. It

I'm gonna mark that down as an upcoming brew. What do you think of Tettnanger hops for a wheat
beer? I was going to do a 75 min boil for my lemongrass wheat with tett at the beginning and

yeah, I don't know why I hadn't thought of that. I'm all set to brew a lemongrass wheat next
week. What proportion would you recommend?

wow, I was just thinking about a mead with local fruit. There are tons of loquat trees in
Savannah. (Sometimes pronounced lumquat) No, they're not kumquats. They're more like slightly
