The Fermentation Vigorosity Indicator


Here is a neat little procedure that a fellow mead maker has created for figuring out the health and progress of his mead. He uses a stopwatch to gauge how long it takes the balloon style airlock to fill back up. Gives a rough indicator of how vigorous the ferment is. You can check out his blogpost about this and his other posts about mead making here:

Mead and Things


The important thing about this is the kind of thinking that a mead maker can use if you want to keep things cheap. He calls this MacGyver style mead making! And I think its great.

If you have any creative ideas about mead making please be sure to send them along to me. I would love to hear them and would love to post them here to my website.
