    What types of fruit did you use and how much of each ? Some fruits work better in mead than
    others and I usually use at least a pound of fruit per gallon, at least for the several
    melomels that I've d...

    Eh.. eh, calm down, calm down (for best effect should be said in a scouse accent, but most of
    you lot would need a translator for that :) ).Anyway, bread yeast will do fine, you can often
    get it to th...

    BTW, the OP asked for opinions. I've given mine, you've given yours. Obviously we don't agree
    on yeast choice. Leave it at that.Huh, so you give your opinion, and I give mine, then you can
    take a dump...

    I wouldn't even consider using bread yeast for mead. With how much honey can cost, don't cheap
    out on the yeast. A packet of Lalvin Labs yeast is typically in the $1-$3 range (depending on
    where you g...

    Need a lot more details before we can say if you did something wrong.But fermenting mead
    stinks, and young mead tastes horrid.Mead shouldn't be touched until 6 months minimum, and
    won't reach it's pea...

    1) Im not adding copper-sulfate additive, which is typically FAR more copper than would be
    added by this method. I wouldnt even bother with that, Id just dump the $15 in cider before
    going down the la...

    In 10 years I have never had a batch of cider get so stank that I was worried. This batch was
    H2S central ( just juice and s04, OG 1.050, ferm temp 38 to 65 in my greenhouse, nutrient added
    2 days in,...

  • Posted in thread: How much honey? on 10-26-2012 at 02:43 AM
    I have to say that 25lb honey with 1. 5 gal water would not work. Not sure where you saw that.
    Good place to start is 3lb per gal

    p.s. I tried to play around w/ hopville beercalculus, but it indicated that my origional 40 lbs
    (5 gallons) of apple jiuce would give me an OG of 1.150, and each lb of brown sugar would
    increase by 0....

    I think you will be disappointed with the outcome because your using motts. I would only use
    fresh apple cider. That's just my opinion.Meh, I have used both and there is little difference
    in the outco...
