    So after some additional research, I did indeed find out that agave is difficult to ferment.
    Lesson learned.At least the stuff tastes good, even if it is sweet and low alchohol. With the
    way its clear...

    Unfortunately I didn't take an OG reading. I rely more on descriptions of the yeast and recipe
    measurements I find here to get an idea of how something will turn out. To date I have not been
    disappoin...

    Hi,Inspired by the Habanero Capsicumel recipe ( I decided to mix up a pepper mead but I wanted
    to experiment with the sugar source some. The goal is to get a dry, hot, peppery drink. Here is

    Yeah, I figured that a coin would add a metallic taste which is why I haven't done it yet. My
    concern with fruit is that it would just rot in the bottle and add a bad flavor.

    Hi,I was just wondering if anyone has any opinions on adding things to your mead at bottling
    for aesthetics? I was thinking of dropping a cherry or cranberry into each bottle of my Winter
    mead when I ...

    After some searching I've found plenty of reuseable wine bottles in some recycling bins (thank
    you, holidays.) Only question is, aside from re-corkable bottles, how about bottles with twist
    offs? Woul...

    I agree with Melkor.In my short time as a mazer I've observed that the honey you use depends on
    how much you want the characteristics of that honey to come out in your final product. Example:

    Thanks, all.I definately went "classic wine label " for the Blackberry. I didn't design the
    berries, I found the art through google and used it in a simple layout.Same goes for the image
    of the old gu...

    Hi all.Using some pics I've "borrowed" through google, PhotoShop and Illustrator, as well as
    the logo generator found at the top of this forum, I've made several labels for the small mead
    batches I've...

  • Posted in thread: Wild yeast mead on 08-26-2010 at 09:32 PM
    OK so I haven't updated this topic in a while, so I just wanted to poke back in to say that I
    bottled my wild yeast mead today. It was just a simple mead with no added elements to effect
    the flavor be...
