Posted in thread: Yeast dropped in secondary, should I transfer? on 07-03-2013 at 04:46 PM
It was around 1.030 when I transfered to secondary. A bit later a pile of yeast dropped but the
mead is still hazy. I haven't taken another measurement. I don't want to risk oxidation or
anything. I p...

First mead I'm making. I step fed the yeast (Monchet) and hit 2/3 sugar completion within 9
days. I then transfered to secondary. It's been in there for 3 weeks and all of the yeast has
settled to the...
Posted in thread: Expunge CO2 out of Mead after 1/3 sugar consumption? on 06-14-2013 at 04:17 PM
AFter reading around I've decided to ferment 1/2 gallon in a 1 gallon glass jug. Hit it with a
wine whisk multiple times a day. Introduce oxygen into the jug before 1/3 sugar completion.
Between 1/3 a...

Hello, I'm on my first mead. I didn't aerate the co2 out enough during the first few days and
seem to be paying for it. Last night I was at sugar completion and transfered to secondary. My
PH was at 2...
Posted in thread: can't find my leak on 03-05-2013 at 05:06 PM
I jostled a keg a few weeks ago and my ball-lock disconnect unscrewed just enough to leak out
my entire co2 tank. Pretty nervous about it now since co2 refills are a pain and unplanned
cost. So now I'...
Posted in thread: When Munich LME is a 50% blend of pale - is 3.3# really only 1.5#? on 02-16-2013 at 03:08 PM
My LHBS only carries Munich in a can and it's a 50% blend of pale and munch. So if I have a
recipe calling for 3# of Munch LME does that mean I should use two cans?

Jack's recipe contains steps to "sweeten to taste" so this might not be a "savory wine". I just
got Making Wild Wines and Meads for Christmas. It has a whole section devoted to Savory Wine
and says th...

There was almost no bitterness. It tasted like a stick of juicy fruit both when it entered and
left primary. I went ahead and dry hopped it with 3 oz of Crystal (2 oz were my own additions).
I also br...
