I have a Rhubarb Mead on the go at the moment...
The rhubarb is a stand in for acid blend I'd run out of at the time
1kg rhubarb boiled and strained into a DJ
500 gm honey
water to 4ltrs
at 1st racking add 500gms honey + nutrient
at 2nd racking add 500gms honey + nutrient
at 3rd racking add 500gms honey + nutrient
I started this one in 2012 and it's still fermenting
Seriously, I'd forgotten about it. It was languishing in the shed, I knew I hadn't added stabiliser so gambled on the yeasies being asleep.
At the last racking it tasted wonderful and that's just with value range honey... I've added a 1lb of good quality honey and it smells fan-bloody-tastic.
It'll be racked and matured in bulk ready for xmas
People assume that Brewing is a strict progression of cause to effect, but *actually* from a non-linear, non-subjective viewpoint - it's more like a big glass of wibbly wobbly... beery weery... stuff.
