Re: my new mead

can't wait to get my campden tablets so that I can rack it and fermet it some more. The Camden will kill all of the yeast in your brew, so it will not continue to ferment after that point. Camden is really best used before your yeast has been added to sterilize your wort/must. It will kill any bact...

Re: Mead Recipes

Honey has a lot of antibiotic properties of its own, so you might be able to get away with using blue honey without sterilizing. This is why you can make mead without adding some sort of material to raise the PH to discourage the growth of bacterias (ie hops in beer...its not just for flavor). For m...

Re: Mead Recipes

You will either need to add your herb to the last bit of your boil, or you need to sterilize your herb in the smallest possible amount of high-proof alcohol before adding to your cool wort to keep things sterile. If you add after cooling make sure to stir well, so that the yeast doesn't come into di...

Re: afew cebil seeds in the beer goes along way.

Chamomile in water will not ferment on its own...at least not in a way that would produce any (or at least very very little) alcohol. There really isn't much sugar content in the herb. If your looking to make an alcoholic beverage from this you could make a dissolve sugar into some boiling water the...

Re: HBWR growing tips...

Perhaps one of those "wall-o-water" deals around the base of the plant. Combination of the two?... If you can keep the base fr...

Re: Kava Kava Kava

You can do a second soak, you'll probably get something, but it won't be near as strong...it wasn't ever really worth it from my experience. The max you can add to your water before saturation really depends on the amount of actives in your material to begin with. When I lived in Hawaii the rule of ...
