I beg to differ. Lagers are in general much more narrow and one dimensional than Ales. Even if
you compare all Lagers to Pale Ales - from Pale Ales to Double IPAs, I suspect ales still win
but its sor...

I would rephrase the question...Why is everyone only into lagers?
Posted in thread: Mead Aging Temperatures on 08-20-2015 at 09:46 PM
Hi guys. I made my mead almost 2 months ago. The fermentation was done after about 2 weeks
(fermented at 66-71 degrees, mainly around 70). After about 3 weeks, I transferred it to a

I'm making a traditional limoncello myself right now. Totally traditional. About 3 weeks now. I

You bring up a good point. My ice cube doesn't chill the alcohol, more like takes the edge off.

beer. I don't...

there have bee...

The wine certainly smells really good. I wonder how much of the cranberry and pomegranate
flavors will be left when it's done.One thing I've noticed that I find really interesting is

I made the cranberry pomegranate wine this morning and, as this is my first 1 gallon batch, I
don't know if this is normal, but the fermentation took off within 4 hours of me pitching the
yeast. I've ...
