    I have several followup questions about this. I have a cyser going right now in a 5 gal carboy.
    It has a volume of about 4.5 gallons and should finish up at around 14.5% abv. I intended to
    rack to ano...

    Great stuff. Thanks for the feeback everyone.

    The highest OG I've had (so far) is 1.156 and that was for a cyser. At last racking the SG was
    1.018 for an ABV of 18.75% It tastes a bit hot, but the residual sugar really does a good job
    of lessenin...

    Back to the original question...I have some experience (at least 4) with high gravity mead
    (above 1.150) musts, which leads me to these thoughts:[*]The higher the OG, the more difficult
    it will be to ...

    Construction and taste are linked. I'm thinking that fermenting out that high won't give you
    the same taste as fermenting out to a lower ABV and then bumping it up by other means.You are
    undoubtedly c...

    If they could get that flavor straightaway, they probably would have.I don't believe it is
    possible to get 1.22 initial gravity (over 49 brix!) with grape juice alone...at least not
    normally (maybe wi...

    Yes you guys are correct about ports being fortified. The point I was trying to make was in
    regards to taste not construction. I do have an oxygen stone to pump in pure o2 if needed. Hell
    I'll just gi...

    ports are around 18-19% abv and quite sweet. This should be similar.

  • Posted in thread: Meads with very high initial gravity - a question on 10-10-2008 at 09:08 PM
    I was wondering if anyone has any experience fermenting a mead at very high initial
    gravity...like around 1.2? A 50/50 mix of honey and water should give a specific gravity of
    about 1.22. Fermented do...

  • Posted in thread: Oaking Cysers? on 10-08-2008 at 05:04 PM
    I have a cyser in primary right now which should end up at around 14.5 abv and I was
    considering racking onto medium french oak cubes in the secondary for a few months. Anyone done
    anything like this?...
