I figured this goes here because skeeterpee isn't complicated
What a happy problem.. made skeeterpee and everybody loved it. I'm down to about half of the original batch and trying my best to stretch it but it's a huge success.
Well I'm making Ken Schramm's multi-berry melomel ("Mambo in your mouth" is the other name he gives it) which starts out in primary as a show mead - 12lb honey and water to 5 gallons.
Anybody ever use the slurry from a mead to start a batch of 'pee? It's the same yeast as I used before, and it's got nutrient, and it won't be drunk (OG 1.092, EC-118 should handle that happily). Problems?
I guess my greatest fear is a strange sort of honey to the lemon taste.. or a lemon to the honey taste.. ya know.
