Re: Elvis Juice!

:) I couldn't believe the smell in my brew shed yesterday when I went in to knock the fridge down from 21 to 18 degC. Been a while since I brewed such a hoppy number and since it was all pellets they're pretty much all in the FV! I suppose that means a lot of flavour is being stripped from the beer ...

Re: Elvis Juice!

Hi Floyd - any updates on how yours is tasting? I can't get my car out of my drive today due to ice so getting this brew on finally! And sadly I haven't made it to the brewery again to ask for details... Re-reading the recipe, it says to add the grapefruit peel to the FV, so I'll add it in a couple ...

Re: Brupaks Boiler keeps cutting out!!

Afraid I don't Phil, but if you open yours up and take a photo I'll annotate what to do.

However, as discussed in this thread, did you try just removing the false bottom to see if that improves things?

Re: Does rape honey make good mead?

Thanks for the responses, will see if I get some and then have a go!

When soft set rape honey can have a lovely texture which I can see selling well, maybe this outweighs the mustard aroma!

Re: Does rape honey make good mead?

Thanks Carnot. I was hoping for some experience as having to wait 2-4 yrs for a result makes this mead game a bit tricky!

We'll have to agree to disagree on the flavour I suppose!

Re: Does rape honey make good mead?

For clarity - like other honey it is basically sugar so I know it will ferment very happily. I'm asking about flavour.

As we have discussed on another thread heather is strong and takes a while to mature, so maybe mixing in some rape would be beneficial?

Does rape honey make good mead?

Evening all

I'm wondering if rape honey makes decent mead?

The honey is bland at best, when it does have a flavour it isn't always pleasant...

I'm going to try to get my bees onto a field of it next year, so all being well I'll have some :)

Re: No krausen!!

I'm only doing 40l batches just lost the space upstairs so bought a 60l to use in the fermenting fridge as I brew 40l at a time. Iv always sprinkled into the wort is it best to rehydrate then.
