    My Mead Recipe Video

    Yes I've tried a slightly better quality honey (and I added oranges too) and the results where good but I didn't sweeten it so it was quite dry but very drinkable and it's getting even better with age. My current mead is honey only, no oranges as I think that contributed to the acidic dryness.

    My Mead Recipe Video

    The mead is doing reallywell, I've left it in the demijohn and will be bottling it shortly. It's been crystal clear for a while and I've racked it a couple of times and degassed it. I'm probably going to rack it and degas it one final time and then bottle.

    I'm starting a new Youtube Channel with my young son as a bit of a bonding exercise and a bit of educational fun. We've worked together on the channel including the camera work and editing etc. It's not amazing but our first real video produced is for the recipe I use for mead. Here's the...

    Turbo cider.

    In low quantities the raisins act purely as a a yeast nutrient although I have heard anecdotal evidence that they also help with PH of the final product. I use raisins in my wines and meads if I have no powdered yeast nutrient (it always seems a more natural and traditional alternative)...

    My First Beetroot Wine

    Drinking my homemade Beetroot wine today. I was concerned that it seemed to change colour in the bottle but once I opened it it is a very pleasing ruby rose' colour as can be seen in the image, even my wife said it was nice (reminded her of a sherry) - ideal in the summer slightly chilled or...

    Christmas Pudding Wine

    Yes it uses 2 1lb good quality Christmas puddings so there is indeed 2lbs of Christmas pudding in this. First time I have known a wine to be rather greasy when fermenting due to the fat content of the puddings. Not a stupid question at all, it could have just been pudding flavoured as you said. :)

    Christmas Pudding Wine

    Finally got around to making my first Christmas Pudding wine. It's been fermenting for a week. Just strained it into the demijohn for secondary fermentation.

    Unusual substance on my white wine

    KILL IT - KILL IT WITH FIRE! Seriously though, I would leave it and let it ferment out as normal. I've never seen this before but I tend to leave my wine to it's own devices.

    Man flu & home brew !

    On a serious note, I always take Ringtons Lemon, Ginger & Ginseng tea with a couple of paracetamol when I have a cold or flu. Much better and cheaper then Lemsip.
