    Never done one of my meads. Did brew an Eisbock last year-froze 25%. Resulted in a very tasty
    10% ABV bock. Mouthfeel was a little thin- would try a ^ mash temp next time. Was supposed to

    If you still have smell post transfer- if you keg, you can do a CO2 wash by flushing thru out
    post and venting thru pop off valve. If u bottle, might have to let it set for awhile.... I

    have used S-33 several times- would be good choice in dry yeast. Currently have a HopManna

    Problems bottle to bottle is a post fermentation problem- most likely. You said you pour
    hydrometer sample back into fermenter. That's probably not a wise idea- with your small
    batches, I would invest...

    bottles, run t...
