  • Posted in thread: Bottling mead - Caps vs Corking mead - either method superior? on 08-10-2010 at 09:27 PM
    Winsome, I bought some tapered corks that you just tap in with a mallet. My understanding is
    that these are fine for short term storage which is what I intend.

    Funk, Yeah, the raisins in my bottles fattened up too. I have had 6 different people sample my
    first batch of JAOM so far and the heads are nodding. It's great stuff. I cannot drink very
    much of it my...

    Bogus. I have only found one store in my area that sells mead. It is made by Honey Run Winery
    in Chico, California. I think it is excellent, but then again I have nothing to compare it to,
    other than ...

    Jez, I am new to this also. I currently have six "experiments" going. Each one reacts
    differently. Patience is the thing here. I would suggest using a bit more honey in your mixes.
    I am having good re...

  • Posted in thread: Mixed berry mead how does this sound? on 08-07-2010 at 04:13 PM
    Agree with Medsen on the clove. My first batch of JAOM I used 3 drops of clove extract in a
    gallon and even that amount was a little too much. Guess it's all about your tastes but it can
    be overpoweri...

    Tinga, That makes perfect sense! While I did not see this action occur in the second bottle I
    made up, the first one I should call "Dancing Raisin Mead". Best of brewing!

    Funk, I see the line there. Normal for the situation. I had a blowout night before last with
    some blueberry I put together in a one gallon mix. Made a bit of a mess!. Plus, I dropped a
    little spoon in...

    Funk, Looks good! Keep a close eye on it while it starts up you can get a whole lot of foam

  • Posted in thread: Any ideas for my fifth gallon of honey on 08-05-2010 at 02:13 AM
    Rowing, I am just now tasting the apricot mead I got going a month ago. I am very happy with
    the way it is going. Just 2 mashed apricots, 40 oz. honey, 1 cinnamon stick, a few raisins,

  • Posted in thread: Made a mess airating- please offer advice on 08-04-2010 at 05:03 AM
    Black. I am currently brewing in one gallon and three gallon primaries. I started a one gallon
    mix of blueberry this afternoon and even though I was watching it closely it blew the airlock
    out and mad...
