So I had given up on a small batch of raspberry mead I made years ago. I packed the remaining 6 bottles into a crate with other "experiments" and forgot about them (knowing that age can help). I...

If you are going to use an ale yeast, use something more neutral like US-5 or Notty. Also if you partially submerge the bucket in ice water you can keep your fermentation temp around 60 degrees...

If it were me, I'd mix 3/4 a glass of it with a 1/4 of a commercial light beer to add carbonation to your beer and kill the sweetness/bitterness a bit. Belgians blend all the time. Who knows, maybe...

I brewed it with equal parts pils, light munich, and vienna with perle @ 60min & just a little big of tettnanger @ 20 mins. Came out really nice. Not sure if I'd say clone, but really tasty!

I thought magnum wasn't very big on flavor contributions and was more of a "clean bittering hop." I'd be curious what it brings to a smash...post your findings here?

Did you make a starter?? Because lagers like BIG starters. Especially something stronger like a Maibock. I usually make at least a half gallon starter.

WAY too young IMHO. Not much tastes good in under 2 weeks. Although a good mild is ready in just about 2-2.5 weeks. Just because its finished fermenting doesn't mean its done.
