    Most certainly can be put to good alcoholic use but topic forbidden here!

    I don't really understand what you are saying when you say bottle after two months and sweeten
    with wine stabilizer....Can only suggest time will lessen tart. I have a gooseberry that was
    absolutely a...

    Suggestion - try searching. I have seen posts that claim preservatives used in such products
    can be negated by boiling. Or heating.FWIW.

    On another forum I've seen frequent references to boiling (for 15 minutes or so) whatever has
    preservative contained, cool then use.I've tried it, no problem.What puzzles me is I don't ever

    ingredients or some such.Gewurz is one of my favourites.Apfel was, well, an interesting
    experiment.FWIW, ma...

  • Posted in thread: Who is still bulk aging their Leapyear Mead on 04-30-2009 at 10:34 PM

    not rack again. Presently not in a hurry; four years, right? :)

  • Posted in thread: Fig Mead on 04-02-2009 at 07:51 PM
    I'd been thinking fig wine or mead for a while, looked around the net for recipes, but most
    tended towards dried fruit which didn't suit me. At a farmers market over the weekend - fresh
    figs, extremel...

  • Posted in thread: 5 gal batch of JOAM. on 03-16-2009 at 09:52 PM
    Put a 4 gall Joe's down on 14th, followed it with 2 gall Malkore's on 16th. Malkore's is going
    gangbusters presently, probably 'cause I used 71B - can't get the designers yeast here
    unfortunately, but...
