Glad to here amcclai7! Let me know if you have any questions.Duncan, yes this is a 5 gallon

I have not. I have played around with different honeys in beers, but I started off making mead
so that made sense. I would actually be interested in seeing what a hint of molasses would do
to a wheat ...

1022 isn't bad. I have had it stop at 1024 and 1026, read as rich but not sweet. I find that it
takes about 6-8 weeks after carb for it to show good maturity.

Keep the ...

hold back a...
