No Zest. No nutrients. No pH adjustments. Thames Valley Yeast. Strange, eh?I added 16 ounces of fresh squeezed key lime juice to a gallon of orange blossom honey and 4 gallons of water, then pitched a big slurry of Thames Valley ale yeast. It was 23P at the start (mid December) and 1.012 at the finish. I force carbed it Sunday. I really like it.No zest? I was thinking about zesting some of them, and using fireweed honey since I have it I assume staggered nutrient additions, did you adjust the pH at all?
A pint of juice . . . that will take a while
Joe originally used only a cup of juice in his 5 gallon batch and I really liked his.
I had some fireweed mead once. Interesting flavors, kind of sharp and spicy as I recall. Does that sound right?
