    Well, It's been a week since my first attempt at brewing. I checked the gravity today and it
    came out at 1.011 after adjusting for temp. The recipe called for a FG of around 1.014. It
    tastes okay, but...

    Thank you, Flars! I'll definitely put your advice to good use. I'm sure there are a hundred

    So here's a strange thing: I'm fermenting a one gallon test-mead using the following recipe...•
    1 Gallon Water • 3 lbs. Orange Honey • 1 Lemon's worth of juice• 1/2 tsp Nutmeg • WLP023 Burton

  • Posted in thread: Mead Bottle Label on 01-24-2013 at 02:03 AM
    This is the label I came up with for the various meads I might brew. This one says "ancient
    orange" as it was the first batch I used these labels on. I print them out on transparent decal
