I took a gallon of an apricot wheat to make a jalapeno beer and I really enjoyed it. The
sweetness of the apricot paired well with it. It was however too hot for most people. I added 3

Actually, in the FAQ sticky thread it states to add the nutrients and then pitch the rehydrated

It is not a BOMM if you use any yeast other than Wyeast 1388. While you will make good mead
