If you're looking for raisin flavor, add a bit of Special B malt.

+1 To apricot.   Very similar flavor and aroma but much more intense.

Really nice shippers.   Fortunately for me, they are located 30 minutes away so I can avoid the shipping cost.

If you have any plans on entering competitions, bottle a few in 12oz beer bottles.

have you tried a 70% Rye beer?


Yes I tried it.  Did very well in competitions.   My rye stout has just under 25% rye malt.

My Roggenbier is typically 70% rye.   Use rice hulls in the mash and you won't have any sparging issues.

Mine never showed up.  Of course it's the issue I'm in.

I won 4 cans in a raffle.  I saw zero difference in performance between Fast Pitch and my DME method.   Very quick and easy.

Did you mix it with tap water, bottled water, distilled water?

I used carbon filtered water.

Other Fermentables / Re: Fruit in secondary

The short answer is...when it has reached the desired taste level.  Every batch of fruit is different and will require a different contact time.   I know this sounds dismissive, but there is no exact answer.   Fortunately, mead is quite forgiving and will hold up to numerous samplings and additions.   I have a lime mead that I added lime juice to 5 different times.  I kept tasting it and adjusting as I went.  BTW..this mead is going to second round of NHC so I'll stand by this method.

False bottom here as well.  I'll never go back.

Put your one pound in.....in a week or so, try a sample.  If it's to your liking stop there.  If you think it needs more fruit character, repeat until it does.

The Finals flight for melomel is like a list of NHC Major Award winners. I should probably just drink mine.
Great idea....now get Fletty, Eibner,Tanner and all the others to follow suit.  I'll leaver mine in just for kicks:)
