    Bray's One Month Mead

    So I went ahead and did 21g in my 5gal batch at 1.050 OG, this is meant to be a light mead to be kegged. This amount is double what the "rough" recommendation would be. I say rough because the TOSNA scale for nitrogen in mg/L doesn't start until you hit 13 brix at which point it increase 25mg...

    Bray's One Month Mead

    So if making a batch with a brix of less than 13 you would simply do 10g/gal up front? Was about to start a batch now and realized my desired SG is too low to a proper TOSNA calc and gives me negative integers... Not sure why I didn't see that before... *edit* 10g/gal seems like a lot... thats...

    Worked with the Gotmead guys and put this together, soon to be added to their mead calc menu: http://gotmead.com/blog/organic-staggered-nutrient-calculator.html

    Help. I think i just messed up

    Hey, you might have wanted to start your own thread, perhaps you did and I just didn't see it. The only way to know its done is either to stop the fermentation yourself or to keep checking the OG over time. If it stays the same after 2-4 weeks then its likely done. In this case though, if you...

    Help. I think i just messed up

    Depends on how you "stabilized" simply adding sulfites will not stabilize, it will slow a ferment to a crawl for a while however, given time that can pick back up. If sorbates were added in conjunction with sulfites then the ferment should be stopped and the ABV you have now is what you're stuck...

    Bray's One Month Mead

    I figured this would be a good place to put this. Here is an online calculator I put together using the recommendations from meadmaderight.com http://app.calculoid.com/#/calculator/6004 Also here is a simplified spreadsheet version: http://lejnd.ddns.net/TOSNA *If you want the actual...

    [HELP]Mead Brew Meeting

    Its not polished but here is what I was able to cobble together with the help of a friend for the math. http://lejnd.ddns.net/TOSNA/ Note that the way the formula works for fermaid-o if your OG is below 1.053 then it states negative values for needed fermaid-o. This does correlate with...

    [HELP]Mead Brew Meeting

    thanks Sarge... I've been on a brewing break for a while due to moving. TOSNA wasn't something I'd heard of officially but had thought about after experimenting with the BOMM mothods and getting great results (though not as fast as the BOMM standard). Think I'll make a dry mead in the next day...

    [HELP]Mead Brew Meeting

    Hey guys, I am hosting a brew meeting for our local brew club next month and the topic is meads. I am the most experienced in the group with meads, I know there is plenty to talk about but I wanted to get some ideas from you guys. What are some questions you'd want answered in a club meet?

    Pyment Questions....

    The next questions you need to ask yourself is how much honey are you wanting to add? what type of grape wine is going to have an alcohol level that leaves you room to add honey as an additional fermentable? If you want it semi sweet perhaps its just a wine thats been finished/stabilized and...
