    Fantastic! I just started my first batch of beer yesterday (I do wine, mead, and cider already), but it was just one of those kits and was only a partial (I used DME and LME) but it's already got a nice Kräusen on it, not 20 hours later and is bubbling nicely. Please post the update in this...

    Welch's Grape Juice Wine

    I'm going to have to try this one out. I'm making a bottle of something similar to this (using HEB store brand) only it's not the concentrate. I just poured a bit out added about 2 cups of sugar and pitched the yeast. It's going to be a present for my Stepmother who will drink just about...

    Methanol Toxicity of Hard Cider

    I'll be drinking it about once a year at Texas Renasance Fair outside of Houston so not too worried about it. Cheers mate.

    Freeze concentration

    Yeah, I figured that out. On the topic of "moonshiners" I don't watch TV so I don't know about that show.

    Bluebberry Cyser

    8 pounds of honey, I don't know that I can find all these different kinds.

    Freeze concentration

    The problem (for me at least) is that Vodka is about the nastiest stuff on the planet. I would rather drink straight everclear than vodka.

    Kool-aid

    I'll toss her e-reader, that'll do the trick. So I used a gallon of water, 2 cups of white table sugar, and some bread yeast last night and it's bubbling (slowly) today. I'm going to my LHBS today and picking up more good yeast and I'll be making my next batch of cider. I plan to add the Kool...

    Candlejack's Apple Cider

    I take it you use a plastic brewing bucket and not a glass carboy? If not is it easy to get the fruit out when cleaning it? I ask because I've been tempted to add some fruit to the brew once in a while but have been unsure I wanted to put in the extra time to scrape it out after.

    Kool-aid

    I think I'm going to try and do a cider with a blue raspberry kool aid and see what I get. I'm sure I'll have to back sweeten though No big deal. If it works out I'll post here. EDIT: Someone threw out all my yeast! *looking at mother in law who was at the house last week while I was out*...

    Methanol Toxicity of Hard Cider

    That is good to know. I am planning on making some apple jack (according to the TTB freeze concentration is legal in the US) but was worried about the methyl alcohol content. I've been looking at filtering of something but from what I have seen the molecular size of ethyl alcohol is about the...

    Freeze concentration

    That is what I'm getting from this. It also looks like it's legal to sell if you've a license to sell beer. Kinda neat.

    Freeze concentration

    Are you suggesting we leave it for a year before or after the freezing process?

    Started my first mead today

    Ok, I just pulled it out and stirred it up. It smells like it's going fine now. Thank you all for the advice.

    Started my first mead today

    I'll make sure to start stirring it after dinner. I used red star, it was in a yellow packet if that helps, I don't know the exact kind but (you will flinch when I say this) I'll find out tomorrow at my HBS when I go in to pick up a hydrometer (they were out all week and I got tired of...

    Started my first mead today

    Thanks for your input. I am worried as the airlock has not started to bubble yet and it has been almost 24 hours sense I started the brew. The closet I have it in smells like beer now about 22 hours after I put it in there to be out of the way. I am really starting to worry.
