You can always use gelatin to adhere the labels as well

I think you mentioned something about this earlier and I have no idea how a dish towel will get
that thing out. I'm definitely willing to try. I thought maybe you mistook what I said for
meaning the g...

Funny part is I usually crank it to 30 for a day or two and then turn down to serving pressure.
This is the first one I ever did the low and slow method.Also, one important piece to the
puzzle I forgo...

Hello,I made a batch of Centennial Blonde (followed recipe on here and hit numbers pretty much
spot on). I force carb in corny kegs.I aimed for a co2 volume of around 2.3 (45F on 12psi).
This seemed t...
Posted in thread: Real honey vs honey malt on 10-29-2013 at 08:46 PM
I've never used real honey in a beer yet, but I have made many gallons of mead. I can say for
sure that in the mead, the honey flavor is almost non existent for a bit of time. After a bit
of time, dep...

71B is my go to yeast for my traditional meads! I have a 5gal batch of 3 month old mead made
from 71B that is perfectly drinkable right now, and another 5gal that just finished up

You are correct that the fan speed is generally relevant to the voltage as basically it is just
a dc motor with blades on it.The nice part about the PWM is that it is sending the full 12v to
the fan, ...

I may have missed it, but what yeast did you use? I too am running some crazy experiments
involving immobilized yeast and dialysis membranes to try and come up with the quickest mead
possible. But the...

It's having trouble starting because most computer 12v fans cannot drop below a certain voltage
(usually about 4-5v).As suggested earlier, you should look into a PWM (pulse width modulated)
Posted in thread: Yeast immobilization: magic beans of fermentation on 07-05-2013 at 02:24 PM
Not sure if that would work or not, besides yeast is cheap enough to try another experiment.
Plus I have a bunch of pipettes coming that will hopefully allow me to make a lot smaller
spheres than the ...
