Well, I think my pumpkin pie mead is a bust. I'm still going to add the spices to some of it.

Just finished racking to tertiary (there's a word you don't use every day). Secondary involved

Bochet is my favorite style. I need more carboys so I can make another one. The only bochet

Got a 2-liter starter of lalvin 1118 sitting on the kitchen counter. My 6.5-gallon carboy is

I'd bet fresh berries would still end up tasting like jelly. Just because it's still going to
