Now for the weirdness. I pitched at about 6 PM. No real activity the
following day until about 4 PM when all of the sudden, there was a
violent eruption of foam out of the airlock. No warning at all.
- 16 pounds, wildflower honey
- 5 gallons, water
- 5 kiwis
- 3 star fruits
- 1 pound, cranberries
- acid blend to .45 tartaric
- MeV liquid mead yeast culture
Pasteurized the honey and fruit at about 180 degrees for 10-15 minutes,
ran through a chiller, pitched with VERY vigorous aeration. Let it sit
with the fruit in for 7 days, then rack off.
