I always wonder about the taste of a honey mead....
Let's see if we can swap a bottle when we swap the vanilla fig port?

Racked this on 01/13/2017. SG was a little under 1.02, which is a bit early, but I knew I wouldn't have time to do it this weekend and since it was such a large open fermentation I didn't want it to go totally dry w/o being under an airlock.

Sounds like a great brew. Did you modify the TiOSNA much? In quantities, or timing?

I've heard about adding bananas (more pottasium?) -what's your experience with using them vs without?

Thanks!
