The WLP720 says to use 1 tube per 5 gals of mead. Using two like many do for beer does not crossover to meads ?
I have a mead going right now, only used 1 tube of the WLP720, but I only used 6 lbs of honey and 3 lbs of Blue Agave syrup, 9 lbs total sugars. My ferment seems very slow, average temp 70F, but this is my first mead, I have nothing to compare to.
Bottled: Gewurztraminer, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, 16B, 18B, 18E, 19B, 20, 21A, 23, 27
BEER, a mixture of malted grains, water, hops and yeast, that is transformed through the course of fermentation that transcends the simplicity of those basic ingredients, fundamentally into the drink of life.
