1-9-18 We’re starting to feature the speakers from the AMMA Conference, coming up March 14-15, 2018. You can learn more at the website, 2 days of both home and professional tracks, all about mead.

Sergio is owner of Melovino Meadery, and will be speaking on his experiment with nutrients, doing a triangle test to determine which methods of meadmaking are perceived to make the best mead, according to the 80 people expected to take part.

We will also have Bob Slanzi on with us, and he’s going to be doing some commentary on the AMMA Conference subjects, and digging in a bit for those who want to know more.

if you’ve been making mead for more than 10 years, you’ll remember how we went from boiling the honey, to tossing in the yeast and honey and waiting, to using yeast hulls and ‘nutrient’ mixes from the brew shop and pasteurizing, to using Fermaid K and DAP, to doing staggered nutrient addition (SNA) to TOSNA, outlined on Sergio’s website at Meadmaking techniques have changed a lot!

We’ll be discussing the changes in mead yeast feeding over the years, and debating what the changes appear to have done for the overall quality of mead over the last 20 years.
