    Mead Yeast Cake?

    Knowing that mead lacks the solids of beer/wine production, will mead's yeast cake and "devil's share" act the same way composted as these others? If not; what else might I use this yeast slurry for? Also, hi! Used to experimenting on my own, but SUPER eager to chat with more experienced...

    HELP! mead not taking off?

    A week a go I made a 5 gallon batch of mead with the very traditional ingredients (wildflower honey, water, Lalvin 71B-1122 yeast and yeast nutrient). I created a starter in a growler 24 hours before and it was very active. It had at least a 1 inch layer of foam at the top. I mixed the...
