My first time

Postby redtail28 » Mon Oct 12, 2009 7:22 pm

One time in band camp i,wait that's not the
right story sorry.

Aleguy help me make my first mead and cider Sunday
night. Made 6 gallons of Orange bloosom mead
and 5 gallons of hard cider. I pitched sweet mead yeast
into the cider and dry white wine yeast into the mead.
It's sure faster than brewing beer

Easier, not faster. It'll be at least a year before the mead's ready and six months for the cider.

What temperature are you fermenting the cider at?

Cider and the Mead are at 70.
The yeast that I used for the cider
recommended 70 to 75 and the wine yeast
had a wider range from 59 to 80.
man the smell of the gases coming out
of the air locks smells like#$%$#$%

I hope your sanitation was up to snuff. Still, it should be fine. Stop sniffing airlocks. Besides, it could be something in your chest freezer causing the smell. Yeasty says to use damp rid to keep the inside dry. :wink:
