10-2-18 We’re dropping into teaching mode again tonight, and bringing in Ryan to talk mead. He’ll be digging into pairing yeasts to your mead recipes, continuing the conversation from last week.
Possibly one of the larger questions in mead making is ‘what yeast do I use?’. And a big question is is indeed. There are hundreds of yeasts out there, for wine, beer, cider and even a few mead specific yeasts.
But which one to choose? That is the question. Ryan is going to try to help you narrow this down, so you can make more focused yeast choices for your upcoming mead batches.
We’re even giving you homework! Download the 2018 ScottLab Yeast Handbook for reference during the show tonight.
Click the chat link below to join us live, and ask questions for Ryan and the team. See you online!
This player will show the most recent show, and when we’re live, will play the live feed. If you are calling in, please turn off the player sound, so we don’t get feedback.
If you want us to tackle your mead making questions, you can send us a question and we’ll tackle it online!
9PM EDT/6PM PDT
Bring your questions and your mead, and let’s talk mead! You can call us at 803-443-MEAD (6323), or Skype us at meadwench (please friend me first and say you’re a listener, I get tons of Skype spam), or tweet to @gotmeadnow.
