Thanks for the clarification.

I had mixed up a five gallon batch and after three days it seemed like a stalled fermentation so I had to break one of the rules and give it a good sloshing around. Now I have activity every 10 seconds or so and all is good.

I promise I'll follow all the rules from here on out.......

Been 13 days down to 1.020, really tastes good, can't wait till 2 month's to see how better it gets. Hope there is some left in 2 months. Surprised how much flavor it got with just one orange.

Made a 2 gallon batch of this around noon. It is around 68-70 degrees. No activity yet, but SWMBO is excited. First batch of mead ever. I had an OG of 1.143 though, seems high but I have no idea.

I'm still not seeing any signs of fermentation. Should I be calling Yooper ?
