    Sluggish fermentation with Omega 004/West Coast yeast?

    1.103 or 1.013? I'd give it two weeks in primary then check the gravity. Secondary is totally unnecessary.

    I get BYO and Zymurgy. If I had to pick one I'd go with Zymurgy (I'm a regular contributor to Zymurgy).

    Nope; don't have the room right now.

    Last of old mead

    Both good, but I did prefer the cherry.
