  • Posted in thread: 2016 Mead Free or Die results posted on 06-06-2016 at 07:43 PM
    I entered few meads in Mead Free or Die 2016 and they placed almost identical to Mazer Cup 2016
    results (where I also placed couple times with same meads). So the judging seems very
    consistent from co...

    I pitched 80 ml of thick yeast collected from active krausen of Belgian Blonde the week before
    and my Westy 10 clone finished @ 1.010 very rapidly. I had to use a heat belt to ramp the temp

    I wonder how fermenter syrup additions will work for this recipe. Seeing how some struggle to
    get FG low enough, fermenter addition when most of maltoze uptake by the yeast is complete
    would make perf...

    That is great information, paraordnance! Thank you for sharing it! If I read you correctly, the
    sediment will provide the starter for the next batch, similar to a sourdough starter for bread?
    I am loo...

    I make kvas in the summer because it was readily available back home and it works wonders to
    quench the thirst. Simplicity is the key. Best kvas will turn out from about third or fourth
    batch once you...

    I made them all but sour/tart cherrywas my favourite by far. Strawberries second. My strawberry
    mead scored 45 at mazer cup 2013, it was really nice. Makes for very smooth mead. Honeyberry
    also very g...

    I just brewed a Hefe today. I have mash tun but for wheat beer I prefer BIAB all the way! Lot
    more sediment in kettle. Quicker brew day, I was chilled by noon! Taste wise seems to be no
    difference. If...

    Somtimes I enjoy the fact that I live in cold Canada. Fruit flies season is only
    July-August-September and I don't see them again for 9 months :D

    I thought squeezing grains in a bag releases unwanted tannins? Am I wrong on that?You wrong on
