It's interesting. I was reading the University of Pittsburgh T'ej Page and they recommended either using the natural yeast on the gesho or to prevent contamination of the T'ej, just to use a small...

Personally I would wait to rack. I'd suggest leaving it for another 10 days. Make sure it's fully complete then rack and reuse the yeast. Patience is a virtue.

By all means try it. If you might like a sweet mead that might end at 1.030 or so, try a bread yeast. I am looking at an Apricot Vanilla Sweet Mead that's drinkable as a dessert mead after a few...

Yes I realize what he said. Bray can clarify for himself. But consider, six total tablespoons of Fermaid K is a whole lot of Fermaid K for a five gallon batch. That's 18 teaspoons! I can see...

A melomel at 12% is a good thing to shoot for. You can sulfite and sorbate your mead when dry and add back some fruit or fruit juice. Natural sugars are the best. Wait a awhile, taste, rack then...
