  • Posted in thread: Can I make mead cheap? on 02-17-2008 at 05:48 PM
    I agree with Malkore absolutely. Don't try anything fancy the first time. Melomels are more
    forgiving to first time mead makers.

  • Posted in thread: "Mead" from Molasses? on 02-13-2008 at 02:28 PM
    I've done it. I fermented Barbados Molasses, with a little honey, a vanilla bean, using turbo
    yeast. It's quite interesting! I kept feeding the brew with molasses until I had pushed the
    fermentation t...

    a lambic braggot....hmmm, that has some potential!

  • Posted in thread: mead infection, need advise! on 01-26-2008 at 03:30 AM
    just use the cherries in water. Please do not use the pie filling. It has other refined sugars
    as malkore stated, and thickeners, etc.

    I've also done a hop mead, with Perle and Saaz hops. I've been playing with honey for a while,
    and some of my favorites are cinnamon, maple, agave, and chocolate. So far, I've liked them
    all, I just l...

    Cinnamon goes well with apples and honey, and once done, will mull quite well.

    now you wait, and wait....actually, if your SG is down to 1.010 or less, you should probably
    rack, then let it age a few months

    As a quick mead, this might be ready in 3 weeks, but the flavor will be lacking. Primary
    fermentation will not be done, nevermind secondary. The honey flavor will be lost in the "heat"
    of the alcohol,...

    First of all, you need more fruit. You would need 1-2 lbs per gallon of mead, so 5-10lbs for a
    5 gallon carboy. You could safely add 5 lbs of each fruit and still get a mild flavor. If you
    want the fr...

    I wouldn't even worry about bottling it this spring. You will need to rack it to another jug
    first. Just tuck the whole gallon jug in a cool dark place, and forget about it. Check it every
    few months ...
