About

I listen to music. A lot of music.
I do chemistry. Slightly less frequently than I listen to music.
I slack on KYM. When I’m not doing chemistry.

Well it’s good to know that I don’t have to be analytically precise if I do try to brew some. What kind of glassware do you use and what do you use as a CO2 vent?

Also that’s a shame. My family lives in the US too, so they’re always trying to get me to bring some down for them. My dad got a box of the Black Magick, and it’s amazing. Worth the money.

This seems like it would be far easier to do in the lab, where I’d have access to the proper glassware and stuff… I may end up stealing some old solvent jugs to use, I think someone else in the department uses them to make wine.

This is the limit of my mead experience. They add a variety of herbs and things, and they don’t pasteurize their honey. Their selection tends more towards being like dessert wines, but still very good.

I am interested in making my own though, I think it would be a fun summer project. And as a chemist, I’ll assume (cough) that I’d have a rather deft hand, at least when it comes to preparation and stuff. I mean, it can’t be much more difficult than a fractional distillation eh? haha That being said, predicting the right levels of spices and stuff to add is tricky, I’m sure. But as you said, it probably wouldn’t turn out bad.

As far as your situation, in my cooking experience (I like to think I’m a quite good cook), I’d suggest adding orange zest, or maybe lemon zest. Do you use a spice sachet? That might help for easier addition and removal and stuff.

And for it being too dry, I’m not sure if there really is a way around that. All the mead I’ve had has been dry. Maybe try using unpasteurized honey?

Yooooo, you owe me some mead. Also it appears you’re the only person who posted in that alcoholic beverage thread who doesn’t have shit taste, even if you are young haha

Don’t post on spammers’ walls (or in spam threads).

Because he actually decided to get off his ass, do a little work, and submit it.

If I were to speak those arcane words to you, well, let’s just say puking rainbows would be the first of your ‘changes’.

If you couldn’t read that, how did you know to post it on my wall?

It’s a shame that that song is so short, I agree. Oh, and you’re always welcome to steal my magic YouTube codes if you wish.

I enjoy chiptunes as well, but I lack the same Nintendo nostalgia as most people, so I guess I have a somewhat different perspective on them.
