It does sound like you're very meticulous with sanitation (more than I am for sure) so to me it does seem like the bottles or uneven priming would be the issue. Sometimes these things can drive you...

Yeah, that sounds like a pretty thorough (and "correct") process, and the whirlpool from siphoning in is usually enough to mix it well. I tend to stir gently afterward just to make sure but I know...

It's hard to pin down, but describing how you prime your batch for bottle conditioning would help. Uneven carbonation or simply overcarbonation can be bad. I had that problem for a little while. Do...

Can you describe the "off flavor" you are experiencing? How do you prime when you bottle your batch up and condition it? Over carbonation can certainly lead to a certain bite that could be perceived...

What is "Wunder Grain" exactly? Scraps of a bunch of different base malts they had laying around which they then bagged up?

It very well could be just that. I think the way the photo is taken and the lighting might make it look worse than it actually is. Have you checked sg and stuff? If it's done maybe cold crash it at 2...

Yeah, I've read through the BOMM thread and will likely take that course to be honest, just using the star thistle honey that I like instead. Since it's my first mead I don't want to wait a year+ to...

Don't dump it. It's possible that it is in infection, but it's also possible that it's not at all. There are other pictures in here similar to that which turned out to be nothing. I also had...

Great, thanks to both of you for the replies! I'm alright with a little bit of sweetness, but don't want it too sweet obviously. I'm alright with having to pay a lot of attention to it. Will I have...

Isn't that what I said? My point is really that 7% is already pretty high, so who cares if you get up to 8%?

Edit: I realize I said American microbrewers. While that is mostly what I meant, I...

Advice on simple show mead?

Hello everybody,

This is my first post in the mead forum but I've been brewing for a few years and I am kind of a raw honey fanatic. I want to try my first mead and I want to do a simple,...

If anything I would say cut some of the Pils extract or Munich extract and then steep some munich. Honestly 7% is only accurate for the way that American microbrewers brew saisons, so 8% isn't going...

I would agree about keeping it simple, which is one reason I was wondering about the hops. Maybe just try two varieties instead of three? Or even all of one. I feel like you won't be able to tell...

I think the amount of Vienna is fine personally, but I would agree that the amount of crystal/cara malts is pretty high. I can also say from experience that 2-row is a little more desirable than...

Just an update on this one. I've had two so far and it turned out pretty well! I think it could still use a bit more time actually even though it's been in the bottle for 6 weeks or so. The warmest...

The chunks look more like coagulated protein to me. The only time I've seen that much is when I've used a fair amount of wheat or spelt in a batch, but if most of the cold break went in I could see...

Yeah I would suggest to not boil the honey as well. The brown sugar can really go in whenever. If you add it early in the boil it may caramelize and add more color which is not a bad thing, but may...
