What does the sulfite do?
Doesn't that stop the fermentation?

Our mead is in a 6.5 gal primary.
We're going to take a sample and taste test it. We don't want a dry mead.
We'll probably do 1 gallon with fruit, and transfer the remainder into a 5 gal. secondary.

General Homebrew Discussion / Mead

We're getting ready to touch the mead, after about 5 months of being in the primary fermenter.
We're stoked to see what has been sitting there bubbling quietly.


Can we turn some of the mead into a melomel, or is that what we needed to do when we first made it?
Can we transfer to secondary and add the fruit and wait some more, or do you think its too late?

All Grain Brewing / Sours
« on: July 11, 2018, 01:01:17 AM »
My brew partner and I are about to start back up brewing after a 2 month hiatus.
He said he wanted to try to brew a sour beer.


I've taken a look at recipe kits, and they're around $70-$90.
And the overall time length is incredible, around a year or so.


What do we need to know before venturing into this new beer style?

Use it as the liquid in your smoker pan for smoking meats.
Interesting, if it had flavor...

Drink it, dump it, or gift it.
I would never gift this beer, even to my uncle!

All Grain Brewing / What to do?

I have 44 beers of a horrid beer I made.
A honey wheat that has no taste, it’s over carbonated. It has no taste.
What can I do with this?

Hop Growing / Re: Hops on clay

I'm growing Cascade, Centennial and Columbus in my back yard.  ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D
 They've really taken off, but it also been really dry lately. Time will tell after this string of storms goes through the area.

Beautiful beer indeed!  What’s the secret?
Secondary fermentation.

Have you ever used anything like whirl flock or Irish moss before? It helps big time.  I remember when I struggled with clarity.
Bravo.
I didn’t use either of those. Just a secondary fermentation.

You could always make a few small 2'x2' boxes and put soil in them and then plant your hops in there.
YouTube has some great videos about growing hops.

I did a one gallon Summer solstice light ale, I replaced the .5 oz of Williamette with 1 oz. of Citra.
Looking forward to this beer, I think its going to be a great summer ale.

1. Patience. Patience. Patience.
    A good beer takes a good length of time.

2. A watched kettle never boils, but an unwatched kettle always boils over.

3. If you're unsure about doing something, ask your friends here on the boards.

4. If you don't worry about your beer, you don't care.

5. Don't sweat the small things, clean and sanitize them first.
