Yep, that's the way I started too.

So, you can buy liquor with 40%+ alcohol levels but can't make homebrew with levels even as high as wine?

I think I will definitely get back into brewing beer in a few months. It has been a long time for me too.

I use raw honey and the most important thing is sterlizing the honey, with out pasturizing it, to kill any natural yeast and bacteria. If interested I have a great recipe.


You have to ask?

Well hell yeah! Post it!

Yessir that's correct. And you can't get anything stronger than 4.7% from the grocery store. You have to visit the state owned liquor store ALKO to buy anything else. Guess where we're not going much? fatman.gif

Now our Minister of 'health and welfare' is working her skinny ass off to dilute that beer so we'll have the same piss poor excuse for a beer as the ğkking Swedes.

I tells ya the POO sure are working up a high blood pressure trying to control us.

Nah, all the POO has to do is make sure we keep electing retards.

When I was living in NC they had pretty stupid laws too. Beer could not be over 3.5% or it had to be labeled malt liquor. And you could transport as many kegs of beer as you wanted but could only transport 120 bottles. You also could not but beer after 12am or 1am depending on the time of year.

wtf2.gif


Georgia wasn't much better. I'm not as familiar with theirs, but hey have one that prohibits you from buying beer to take home on Sunday, but you can go to the bar and get drunk.

For 5 US gallons of about 17%-20% honey mead.

Equipment: basic brewing equipment. I like using glass carbouys with a fitted boot and a air lock so I can watch the fermentation process, which takes about 3 1/2 months.

Ingredients:

12.5ibs honey
Pasturized honey is easier to get started than raw honey, but all the healthy stuff is destroyed during the process.

4 tsp citric acid blend

5 tsp yeast energizer or yeast nutrient
If you don't use this, it is great to get the yeast started in beer also.

5 grams wine yeast
I've used reagular bread yeast in a pinch.

1/3 tsp sodium or potassium metabisulphite
This kills any natural yeast or bacterias in the honey. If using raw honey double the amount.

5 US gallons of filtered or distilled water.

Original Specific Gravity should be~1.110

As with all brewing, everything must be sanitized.

If using paturized honey, add honey, acid blend, and yeast nutrient to a gallon of warm filtered water to blend and dissolve honey.
If using raw honey, add honey to 1 gallon of water and heat to just before a boil. This will help the sodium or potassium metabisulphite to kill any natural yeast or bacterias without destroying the nutrients. Remember honey is one of Mother Nature's cure all.

Add to sanitized fermenter with 4 more gallons of filtered water.

Add sodium or potassium metabisulphite and let stand for aleast 24 hrs. If using a plastic fermenter, just lay the lid across the top of bucket without snapping it tight. If using a carbouy, attach a hose instead of an air lock to the boot. Sulfur dioxide needs to be able to escape. Foam over is a concern, so for this period I put the fermenter in a bath tub.

Add yeast after this 24 hr disinfecting period, and seal with an air lock. Foam over can still be a concern in the intial stages of fermentation.

It can take a couple days to even a couple of weeks for fermentation to begin depending on temp, type of honey, type of yeast. So be patient and don't let anyone throw it out.

The fermenter should be stored in the dark or at least out of any dirrect light, at a temp of 65 to 75 degrees F. Like all other brews, mead can be racked during fermentation process to clear it up. I like the stuff on the bottom, so I don't rack it. When I'm through bottling, the wort on the bottum is what I drink first. MMMMM.

When the mead clears and the air lock levels out it is ready to bottle. Unlike beer, it can sit in the fermenter for a little while after it is done fermenting.

Super easy, any viking can do it.

Bottle in brown bottles or green wine bottles. I bottle in 20 ounce brown beer bottles. This stuff is potent, sweet and smooth. Once you start it's hard to stop, so be careful.

That is why all free people must become self sufficient and cut the POO out.

Thanks for the recipe! Looks very good except for the sulphite. JR can't take that, he's so chemically sensitive it's not even an option.

Oh well... beerbong.gif

Cheapest honey in these parts comes around €3 a pound so I think we'll save that recipe for richer times. scream.gif cheers.gif
