    First attempt.

    here we are again...I have left this batch alone since last posting here and all activity has stopped. I have received both fermaids "O" and "K" Does anyone have any tips/tricks to get things re started? I am tossing the idea around of getting a gallon of cider and making a fresh "starter"...

    First attempt. long does this stuff normally take? It's been 7 weeks and fermentation has slowed considerably, it's only at about 50% of the goal.

    First ever batch. Don't worry about the headspace, I topped off with Co2 and a few banana slices for nutrient.

    First attempt.

    too late...why isn't any of this information ever just up front? Especially in reference material aimed at newbies? Anyway, I'll drop in a few banana slices, that should help without adding any flavors to the finished product. :u Not all sugars were dissolved yesterday, OG rose to 1.151

    First attempt.

    So I am starting my first ever batch with 20 lbs of local wildflower honey and distilled water to 5 gallons. OG 1.140 at I'm guessing somewhere around less than 75F. Used K meta for insurance. I will be pitching EC-1118 tomorrow.

    Check my math and theory?

    First off, I want to do a very "high gravity" straight mead(just honey, no twig n berries.) I also would like to have a fairly sweet finish. My basis for this is gonna be my trusty EC-1118 and plenty of varietal wildflower honey. The idea is to get SG high enough to burn out the 1118 and leave...

    Watermelon woes...

    OK so I did post some recipe/methods in winemakingtalk forum...I did add sugar, OG was 1.104, I didn't record FG but I used EC 1118 so I'm sure I got .995-.998 ....also I added some blackberries (I forgot about that one!) and half a banana (for nutrient) I figger ABV should be around 14%
