I'm still thinking it is those 2 pounds of crystal malt. That is a lot for a 5 gallon recipe.

Clarno, it should be labeled as towhat kind of glass it is. Pyrex, Kimax, and a few others will work. Google the brand name, and if it is borosilicate it is OK.

Well, around here, it's not so much "find" them, as it is "avoid" the stickery bastages!

But, their fruit does make good Mead flavourings!

Oh Mighty Ali'i, Nottingham works just fine in Mead. I've used it before, and it leaves a bit more residual sugars than 1056 or S-05 do. In a Mead, I really like it!

1056 will work just fine, on a lower-gravity mead. I'm thinking about 9 pounds for 5 gallons, or so.
