    Adding fruit on start of fermentation vs end of fermentation

    Hello everyone, I've been recently transitioning from brewing beer to making mead (done a few braggots), so i'm still a newbie.

    "crystals" on top of fruit addition to secondary.

    Hello everyone! First post. Sorry if it doesn't belongs to this board.

I know them turning white is normal, but had never heard about...

    Mixed-Fermentation Sour Beer Really Easy Fruit Sour

    This has become a staple beer at my house. It's loved by non-beer drinkers, lager drinkers and craft beer drinkers. Kegs go faster than anything else I make. This is really simple, using the co-pitching method (sacch and lacto go into the ferment at the same time) which is easier than kettle...

    Where do you all get your fruit?

    I have a press, and I find it difficult to find enough bulk fruit to use with it to make 3-5 gallon batches. That is a lot of fruit juice. I'd rather not add water and sugar if I don't have too to get the volume of 3-5gal. Do you all go to farmer's markets? Order online? What price points...
