  1. Exploding bottles! I need help!

    On January 8,2016 I made a raspberry melomel with a SG of 1.11. By March 15, it had cleared, stopped fermentation, and had a SG of 1.06. I bottled 25bottles and corks inserted. They have been in a cool basement since. Then on August 22nd they started exploding- 5 bottles so far! It is like a sparkling wine now. What should I do, and what is causing this? I have made 4 batches of mead before and never had this problem.

  5. My Nap

    Being retired has its advantages. One of them is you have a whole lot of time to fill with something either productive, or...unproductive. I did the un-productive stint already, so now its time to get off my ass and do something, or so my wife says.

    I took a long nap one day, restful, and when I woke up, I decided I was going to be a brewer. So I got my wife's credit card, went to the local brew shop ...
