    8 year old mead

    So was cleaning up the other day and ran across a corny keg full of mead I brewed about 8 years ago (That is what the tag says). You think it is still good ? It has been in the garage and maybe a max temp of 85. I will open it up soon, was just wondering what everyone thought. Jack

    220/Heater element ?

    Yes.......All the 220 @ my house is 3 wire.(Older) 4th wire is a true ground. Seems heater elements only have a spot for 2 wires.....just was not sure how the 3rd wire would work as a ground with a gfci breaker..... Jack
