    So it has been a long while since I last posted here. I apologize for not keeping up. In the

    friend of mine.Th...

    Sparkolloid works really well for me...although I usually let my mead clarify on its own. Be
    sure you use the proper amount, and boil the heck out of it (per package instructions). Add it
    and wait; wh...

    I'll be starting a test batch soon, I hope I don't get spoiled mead, but to be honest, as long

    Sounds like you're making a cordial or something. Correct me if I'm wrong. I know cordials

    A multi berry melomel that's just refusing to clear. I've given up waiting because I needed the

    So I soaked my corks for about 30-45 mins before bottling, and after about 3 weeks I get little
    bits of cork floating in my beautiful Cyser. Not that its totally detrimental, but it is rather

    I've used wax with crowns, no problems. It can be a little annoying if the wax you're using is
