    Agreed. Maybe bump up the nutrients a bit to be sure the yeast are happy. Better brewing
    through science!

    Upon doing some research, Dansk uses Heather honey. Good luck on finding or affording that.
    Most posts claim this is a sweet mead, but the sweetness is well hidden by the spices and
    alcohol. Apparentl...

    I haven't tasted this one to help you out. I see ginger and hops are there and it's 19%. Was it
    sweet or dry? Did you take a gravity reading to get the FG? Please give any details or level of
    ginger s...

    Punching your numbers into my brewpal software puts your SG ~1.09. Max ABV would be 11.3%.
    EC1118 won't have any problem taking it dry. You probably took the reading while it was still
    hot which gives...

    Day 211.018. It's slowly fermenting down. It's still very tasty without any fusels despite the
    fact it is struggling to ferment with the pepperberries. I wish I could stabilize and stop
    here. Effin' a...

    Day 21Gravity 1.000. The lavender and rosemary are in full force. I decided to rack off the
    spices so it can start to mellow out. Also, I began cold crashing. This will be nice on a hot
    summer afterno...

    Day 21Gravity back to 1.008. Quite tasty! I hope it stops here!Turns out meadowfoam needs some
    sweetness. The backbone of the marshmallow flavor is bitter without sweetness. With sweetness,
    it is mars...

    Wow. I don't see why they would lie. It must be trace because I can't detect it at all!Better
    brewing through science!

    Having brewed with lots of hibiscus, I can say with 100% certainty that it is not in this beer.
    Grain of paradise, maybe. But definitely not hibiscus. Better brewing through science!

    It's mead, not beer. Oxidation is not an issue. Better brewing through science!
