    Dry Hopping Preservation

    Is there a way to calculate the IBU with only part of the fermentables in the boil and only about half the volume. I'm planning to add honey but don't want to boil it for flavor and I only have a 5 gallon pot. Brewers Friend doesn't seem to handle it right.

    Dry Hopping Preservation

    https://www.beervanablog.com/beervana/2017/4/17/yes-dry-hopping-does-add-bitterness-to-beer If I'm reading the chart right it looks like 2 ounces in 5 gallon batch will be 15ish IBU.

    Dry Hopping Preservation

    I'm looking to brew a Sahti inspired ale with minimal hop bitterness. I'm going to use juniper berries and maybe some fir tips in the boil. I'm planning on dry hopping in the secondary for a little bitterness. Will that also help with preservation?

    High Gravity Braggot Yeast, and Other First Braggot Questions.

    I've updated the recipe to better reflect my plan. Right now it's going to about 16.5 % (for some reason adding the bochet honey as seperate items raises the FG which it shouldn't) so it would be pushing the 1388.

    Fortified Mead

    I haven't tried it yet but I've had the idea to use barenjager to fortify a dry mead. https://www.seriouseats.com/recipes/2012/09/homemade-honey-liqueur-barenjager-recipe.html

    What do I need to start brewing Mead? (and good recipes)

    So reading through the Newbee Guide I think I'll use this yeast with a berry melomel, and get a different yeast for a traditional once I bottle the melomel. What's the usual amount of berries per gallon? I was thinking 2 or 3 lbs in the primary.

    What do I need to start brewing Mead? (and good recipes)

    Reading through the GotMead newbie guide kits lots of information. I'd prefer to keep it local, so orange blossom is pretty much out, not many orange trees in Oregon. What other options would are available that are local to the Northwest? Most of what I see is blackberry.

    What do I need to start brewing Mead? (and good recipes)

    Good points, I think I can probably get a good balance with the melomel at 14-16%, that's the same range as the berry wines I've liked. Would you recommend something in the 12-14% range fermented to dry and back sweetened for the traditional? Do you have a link to the SG and FG chart for ABV...

    What do I need to start brewing Mead? (and good recipes)

    For the ABV that's what the yeast will ferment to and I prefer strong wines. I'm not sure of the specific variety of honey but I have a friend that is a beekeeper so I'll probably just get some from him, it's just "wild flower" so mostly blackberry blossom and clover. I'm thinking I'll shoot for...
