Re: mead

Set two gallons of this going last night, activity within an hour of yeast going in and very rapid when I woke up this morning. Going to do 1 gallon of his grape pyment tonight for something drinkable much sooner then the spiced orange.

Re: Simple Cheap and Tasty, Raspberryade

Yeah I put the ribena on the hob for a bit to be safe, it's fizzing away in the DJ so all is well.

I haven't been able to find the strawberry one yet, just the raspberry.

Re: Simple Cheap and Tasty, Raspberryade

I have just started another batch and if I replicate the last lot I'll be happy. Also on Monday I made a similar brew but with ribena, came in at 1080 at the start on Monday, and now tested today and its 1074 and to taste is very sweet, will check it in a week.

Re: Perry, Pear Cider

I used half a litre of that lidl pear stuff, my bottles should be ready for tasting in about a week, they are cloudy currently. I'm not too sure what they'll taste like, time will tell.

Re: Perry, Pear Cider

What would you think about changing 1l of the water for 1lt of pure pear juice? or should I just add more pears to displace 1l of water?

Currently the bottles are sitting in cupboard (since 10pm last night), reading a few threads it seems i'll need to move these to t...
