    Sounds like it would be worth a 1 gallon batch experiment, anyhow. Maybe two experiments, one
    with almonds one with apricot pits. Of course it may be a drag acquiring all those apricot
    pits. And almon...

    Sounds good, I'll add this recipe with the others that I want to try sometime.

    Update:Well I've cracked open 2 bottles and both were flat. I think the plastic champagne style
    corks didn't make a good enough seel on the Belgian style bottles. Oh well now it's a still
    cider. As fa...

    I've only made two batches so far, but I've never made a starter. I do, however, study the
    sticky's at the top of this forum, and follow the staggered nutrient addition. Tried and true
    methods come th...

    I figured I was overthinking it. They were all stemmed and halved before they went in and the
    one's bigger than the neck were crushed as they were forced through.Thanks for the input.

    I'm just killing some time at work today, and I was thinking about racking my strawberry
    melomel off the strawberries next week sometime. That's when I got to thinking about how I'm
    going to get those...

    My first, and only cider was 3 gallons of juice and 2lbs of honey, I carbed in and bottled in
    Belgian style bottles with champagne corks. The still cider tasted amazing at bottling and it's
    been in th...

    This sounds delicious. I'm a huge fan of Craisins. Please keep us updated on the progress.

  • Posted in thread: Quick question on Mead in Primary on 06-16-2009 at 03:29 PM
    Thanks guys. I am looking for a sweeter drink, so I expected the strawberry sugars to not
    ferment out.I don't have my journal with me, so I can't remember what yeast I used. I think it
    was a dried pac...

  • Posted in thread: Quick question on Mead in Primary on 06-15-2009 at 08:34 PM
    It is in a bucket, not a carboy so the oxygen exposure is a concern I hadn't thought of. When
    the height of fermentation it was bubbling steadily so I know that CO2 was pushing out and not
    allowing O2...
