View Full Version : First Melomel

Hello from North Carolina everyone. Well I am going to try and make my first mel. I was just curious if there was anything else I might need to know that is not in the complete mead maker? Does anyone add oak chips or cubes while aging?

Check out the NewBee guide in the left side yellow dialogue/links box. Many use oak, whether chips, cubes, staves, spirals or even obtaining whole barrels.....

I'd say make sure you've read up on cap management and handling of fruit.
