If you are referring to the safety of drinking it, you can drink a mead (or any brew I believe) whenever you want. You can drink it 24 hours after you pitched your yeast. Now whether or not you'll...

Bentonite. Wow.

So I feel compelled to share my experience I had with bentonite, as what has happened versus what I was expecting were far different.

Back story: I made some JAOM and I did not have a good time...

I could earn a lot of brownie points with my girlfriend if someone could come up with a recipe for this and I brewed it right :D

It is an interesting taste, like muscato but far more...juice-like?

Yep only a half packet :( most of the 1gallon recipes I've read say to use 1gram of yeast so I thought using 2.5grams was plenty. I also didn't know the OG could make it a harder ferment, I thought...

Is my latest brew too acidic or did I mess up somewhere?

Looking for advice on what to do, if anything. Tried a recipe that I think may have just been too acidic for the yeast to ferment but I've seen other lemonades so I may have done something wrong.
