    Did you fill to 3 gallons in primary then add the cherries, or did you add all ingredients then
    fill to 3 gallons? Also, for a 6 gallon recipe would you use 18 lbs of honey (3 lbs./gal.) or
    13.5 lbs. ...

  • Posted in thread: Do I Stir Ceyser Before Racking? on 01-27-2013 at 08:57 PM
    If it's been in there longer than 2-3 weeks, no. That's probably not honey at the bottom
    (unless you just poured/scooped cream/thick honey into the primary and didn't stir/mix it in
    before pitching th...

    I'm no expert on meads; I've never had one stuck before on fermentation. However, I've been
    told if I ever had gotten stuck (usually at semi-sweet levels like SG = 1.010) to add potassium

  • Posted in thread: Melomel's - Faster Fermentation Than Expected? on 01-27-2013 at 08:30 PM
    I've thought about going that route with letting my meads go through a more natural
    clearing/stabilization. Currently I have a 5-6 gal. batch of traditional mead doing that right
    now (1 month into the...

    I feel like I might've misunderstood more than I thought. Yeah, I didn't mean boil the grains,
    after mashing you filter out the grains, then boil. My plan was to: Mash 7.4 lbs. of the grain
    in 2 - 2.5...

  • Posted in thread: Help With Mash Schedule & Boil Time - First All-Grain on 01-23-2013 at 10:35 PM
    Why not just mash, then boil, all 7.4 lbs. of the grain in 2 - 2.5 gal. of water; dump that in
    the primary, and fill to the 5 gal. mark? I had assumed that was possible.What I mean is: At
    1.25 quart o...

    I have a question about your brewpot. Are you going to be doing this in two boils? Or are you
    cutting the amount of grain in half, and doing a 2.5 gallon batch?This had me running back to
    check the vo...

    if the OWNER of your LHBS thinks a saccharification rest "has something to do with the boil,"
    you may want to look for another place to buy your stuff. I didn't explain this fully, but
    given my situat...
