    Help? Maybe?

    I started a one gallon batch of mead last night. It is my first time, woke up this morning to look at it pictures to show, is something wrong with it? Do I need to fix it? How do I fix it? What went wrong if anything?

    Strange Bubble Issue

    Hello there, First time wine brewer here. I have a weird situation and couldn't find any explanation on the net. The problem is when I place the airlock, it starts bubbling approximately in 1 hour. It keeps bubbling for 3-5 hours. Then it stops, water in the airlock stays at the same levels on...

    Beginner Needs Advice (Mead Stopped Bubbling)

    I recently started trying to brew mead (June 2nd), I used 3 flasks of water (0,75l), into which I gave 165g/~0.35 pounds of honey each, as well as 6-8 raspberries, and added some common bakers yeast (just to give it a try before I move on to better yeasts). It started bubbling an hour after I...

    Question about primary fermentation.

    Hey folks! First I just wanted to say thanks to all the people out there that put time into helping others with their home brewing questions! I've gained a lot of knowledge just from reading the forum posts, but now I have a question that I can't quite find the answer to. (I'm pretty new to all...

    Cloudy secondary.

    Hello everyone, This is my first time posting to The Forum. I have some questions about a cider I was making. My first attempt at cider actually. I got a cider brewing kit from Midwestern Brewing Company. I then received a 6.5 gallon carboy from a friend. I picked up some freshly pressed cider...

    Mead bottles under pressure!

    After 3.5 months I bottled mead because it was at 1.000 F.G. I opened one flip top bottle and it foamed up like crazy. Why? after 3 1/2 months would it still be fermenting?
