You need to make sure that whatever you use does not have preservatives in it. It will stop, or at least hurt your fermentation. I have been using fruit, but will be experimenting next year with...

Yes, Melomels mellow out a little quicker. I have two 5 gallon batches of Cranberry that are only a little over a month old and one is already drinkable. I'll probably start tapping into them in the...

I used to use a long handled spoon and now use a carboy mixer that attaches to a drill. You just do your best to not mix vigorously enough to cause a vortex or a lot of splashing. There's no way to...

We haven't tested, but we ruined a pretty expensive batch of berry mead to oxidation. It's still drinkable (I use that term loosely) but has a "cardboard" taste to it. Also, instead of the...

First, be careful about juices. They can have preservatives which you won't want. Second, strawberries have a lot of sugar. Make sure you have a lot of head space in the carboy or use a blow off...
