    I made a one gallon batch with some cheap apple juice. It fermented for about 3 weeks before
    airlock stopped moving. When I tasted it, it was horrible. Smelled like whiskey and tasted like

    I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but it is most likely that the fats and milk solids will
    separate and spoil.. It would be a lot easier to make a cocao and caramel mead out of burnt
    sugar and raw ...

    I read when using honey to carbonate, 4.7 ounces of honey is the equivalent of the normal four
    ounces of priming sugar for a five gallon batch. Does using 750ml of honey dramatically
    increase the risk...
