    During fermentation all meads go through a range of smells. The taste at 1 week, 1 month, 3
    months and 6 months are drastically different improving with age. No worries. Have a Homebrew
    and chill.

    Great. If the gravity is 1.000, then you are ready for secondary or cold crashing. Secondary
    temperature is less important than primary temperature, but I would still keep it at less than
    70 F if poss...

    Fruit (fresh or not) just needs time to integrate when added to secondary. Unless your going
    for a sweet fruit bomb. Those go pretty fast. Sweetness hides many flaws. Honey incorporates
    pretty fast bu...

    What is the full recipe and current gravity? Without that info, it's difficult to give good

  • Posted in thread: Vintners Harvest secondary on 11-22-2015 at 04:54 PM
    Yes, I've tried it. It needs time to integrate into the mead. After you add it, age it another
    3 months and taste. It may need longer. It doesn't add much in the way of sweetness. You'll
    need to add m...

  • Posted in thread: At what SG does mead start tasting sweet on 11-22-2015 at 04:44 PM
    Semi-sweet would be in the 1.005-1.010 range. It is best to do a bench trial in a glass first
    to determine how sweet you like it.

    It's supposedly better consumed young and not so good as it ages, but I'm going to age a 12oz
    bottle and see how that goes...I've made several batches of T'ej now and can vouch that it does
    improve wi...

    Ah! Marshmallow Blue is absolutely correct!

  • Posted in thread: Sour mead on 11-14-2015 at 04:59 PM
    Yes and you should add nutrients. No matter what bug is doing the ferment, you've got to keep
    them happy!

    For 71B, rack when the gravity hits ~1.000. After that, rack every time you accumulate 1/4 inch
    of sediment. That tends to keep off flavors at bay. Never heat treat honey unless it's
    crystallized. Whe...
