Not much: 1 lb, 4 oz. It was a pretty arbitrary decision based on "I feel like it should be more than a mere 7 oz." and "oh look, here's a bottle of honey I should finish off that's more than 7 oz."...

They're in a cabinet at ~75F right now. Temperature control is a difficult thing here in the RV, but I'm working on it. May throw a bag of ice in the cabinet with them or something. <70F, you say,...

Day 2:

Yeast is definitely doing it's job, but it's being calm about it. Went ahead and topped, then took a sample for hydrometer:
- Lemon-ginger: 1.104 sp.gr. (1.100 @ 86F)
- Lime-ginger:...

Wondering the same, myself. Missed out on the dandelion crop last year, but I've rejuvenated my mead-brewing, so hope to harvest dandelions for this mead this spring as they start popping up.

That'll be good to keep in mind. Anything to do but re-bottle in a couple weeks/month?

What do you consider a "long" fermentation. So far for me, I've just to JOAM...fermenting 3 or 4 months. Is that "long", or am I not causing too many problems (yet) by using plastic?

There's a fair chance that the cold stunted the yeast at least a little bit, but they also had 4 months to do their thing, so I would think they did a complete job. It's clear, anyway. With any luck,...

Good to know about the carbonation. It really is hardly noticeable, but seems to be there. I look forward to savoring these in a few months and seeing how they change.

JOAM tanginess

I'm pretty new to mead, and brewing in general. I don't have an ideal situation for brewing, either: I live in an RV, moving from place to place for my job every 2-4 weeks. Still, I did two separate...

2.5 or 3 gallon sounds like it would be about right for what I'm thinking...small enough to allow for multiple batches and "experiments" and large enough to enjoy the outcome. I'll have to keep my...
