  • Posted in thread: Rooibos or Honeybush mead? on 06-22-2012 at 12:44 AM
    Going away for two months but planning on making a big batch of mead when I get back. Recently
    ordered some loose leaf rooibos. Love the stuff. Planning on getting some honeybush as well.
    I'm thinking...

    I've enjoyed quite a few of Pretty Things' brews. This English-style barley wine is no
    exception. I have very little to compare it to. Have only tried one other barley wine
    (something at the CBC once ...

    Ahhhh thanks very much!

    It's been three days so er, bump. Why is sulfite often added along with sorbate? What are the
    risks in excluding it?

    fermentation? Is there a reason not to do so?Thanks!

    The beer that had turned was an ale (this one specifically: Titan Ale - Watch City Brewing Co.
    - Waltham, MA - BeerAdvocate ) that tasted undrinkably sour. I don't know how long it'd been
    since it was...

    Thanks for all the helpful replies! I was cold crashing to get the remaining yeast to drop, not
    to stop fermentation. This is the first time I've made something from unfiltered juice and
    didn't trust ...

    Made a cider. Nothing scientific. Bought a gallon of unfiltered, spiced cider from Trader
    Joe's. Added approx 1 1/2 lb of honey. Fermented in the original container. Used Lalvin D47
    yeast. Cold crashi...

    So I've racked it to a gallon jug. That was some time ago. The grav was definitely less than 1
    and when I took a little taste it seemed like the ABV was substantial. My plan now is to age it
    all toget...
