    Mold?

    I would say the spots are white, I took a taste test from each and they seemed normal, so I am going to do like you suggested and rack to a new carboy leaving the invaders behind before backsweetening. They both had rally nice color to them in a glass! Excited to try force carbonation on these...

    Mold?

    Hey ya'll, haven't been on here in a while. I started two 5 gal batches of mead just shy of a year ago (6-19-21). I had fermented them to about 7%ish ABV, cold crashed, racked and stabilized, then I let them age. Today I went to pull them out to back sweeten and found to my dismay what I fear...

    Groennfell & Havoc Mead... Bile..?

    I sent an email and they got back to me asap, offered a replacement and asked for the batch code on the can. Hopefully they can pinpoint the problem

    My first keezer build; questions

    Well, I've only ever had very lightly carbonated mead (think less than a red bull(sorry, I'm not well enough versed to give technical terms lol)) hardly foams at all when dumped into a glass

    My first keezer build; questions

    While I'm sure I'll end up putting beer in it eventually, im mainly planning on putting my mead in it, hence why I changed the gravity. I had read somewhere that 2oz/sec was "perfect in most circumstances" which seemed reasonable since with lower carbonation, a slightly quicker pour should be...

    My first keezer build; questions

    5.7', according to the calculator, I couldn't remember exact off the top of head without going back to it

    My first keezer build; questions

    Okay, well then I have a problem... If I dropped down to 3/16 it calls for a little over 5' of hose, but the shanks I bought are ¼", so 3/16 won't fit on there... and I am not replacing them after I already painted them so they can't be returned 😅

    My first keezer build; questions

    Okay, well I had figured my hoses might be kind of short, but that calculator is saying 43 feet of hose??? I call BS... unless I'm not understanding something

    My first keezer build; questions

    Thanks! Definitely took a lot longer than expected, but having to start over didn't help lol. Yes, I painted dang near everything, the freezer itself I sanded to help the paint bond and just used some "appliance" spray paint from home depot. The person I bought it from had put a thick coat of...

    Groennfell & Havoc Mead... Bile..?

    Lmao sorry, each flavor comes in a 4 pack. I ordered 10 different flavors, totalling 40 cans😅

    Groennfell & Havoc Mead... Bile..?

    That's kind of what I was wondering. I've never had that problem, but I figured there had to be some kind of cause for it.

    My first keezer build; questions

    Update!: So the bad news.. the keezer I showed you guys got taken to the dump... I busted a cooling line... 🙄🔫 The good news? I found a slightly bigger freezer that fits FOUR kegs, and it is officially done! Well, aside from needing to make some booze to put in it! 🍻 A little bit of sanding to...

    Groennfell & Havoc Mead... Bile..?

    Hey guys, So I ordered a 4 pack of 10 different flavors from Groennfell & Havoc, the very first can I opened (Valkyrie's Choice) smelled and tasted like bile.. straight up vomit 🤢 The other 3 flavors I have tried since have all been fine. I expect anything commercial to not be as good as home...

    Thanks 🤘 I normally am making larger batches of the same recipe, my main goal was to be able to do 10-15g batches with some room to spare

    My first keezer build; questions

    I am in a middle of building a ferment chamber as well! Snagged up a second freezer, just big enough to fit 3 carboys in. Yeah, I bought two inkbird controllers, one for the keezer and one for the ferment chamber. Once everything is finished, booze will be on the way 🤣
