    1. It is a way to determine if the process has a chance for success. After a month, yeast
    settle out on bottom in a powdery layer (if there is any yeast). Keep in mind I've had a few
    batches that neve...

    Yes to both questions.

    1. Fermaid A is Fermaid K without added vitamins, sterols, and trace nutrient...all of which
    are rather critical. I would suggest supplementing with an equal part of GoFerm to get the
    appropriate yeas...

    To get a isolated culture you can also plate them out on agar plates, grow the colonies up and
    then grow the wild yeast from the honey after identifying and selecting the colony. Great write

    Attenuation is meaningless for mead because 100% of the sugars are fermentable (unlike beer).
    Your yeast will keep eating through sugar until they hit ABV tolerance or the pH drops too low.

    Hi, here's the clone recipe I found on this forum: haven't tried brewing this up yet, but it
    probably be my next one. Good luck!While I'm sure it's a good mead, the last post states it's
    not even cl...

    Generally, I use RC212 for color retention and fruit enhancement in fruit based meads. Not
    necessarily bad in a metheglin, but there are better choices such as Wyeast 1388, DV10, D21,
    etc. For experim...

    Polish mead makers have a bit different process in mead making as well as different
    ingredients. It is not unusual for them to fortify with neutral spirits to raise the ABV. This
    adds bang and stops/s...
