Hi Folks. I am a Mazda Miata enthusiast and The big Miata forum has an acronym page. There are dozens of them. Is there anything like that here?

Which 'nyms are you trying to figure out and maybe we can clarify for you? Other than that, none that I know of.

Laugh, if you want, but the acronym page has around 80 listed. About half are pretty generic, but the others are car-specific.

Wait a minute... You'd better not be laughing at my car!! :cool:

BOMM = Bray's One Month Mead, a rapid way to make a mead. Bray's username on this forum is loveofrose.

SNA = Staggered Nutrient Addition, a protocol for nutrient addition to a mead at specific stages to optimize yeast health and activity.

YAN = A famous TV chef, star of "Yan Can Cook" :rolleyes: Seriously, in meadmaking YAN = Yeast Available Nitrogen. See here for a better description than I can give: http://electromeadsmith.blogspot.com/2012/04/calculating-nitrogenyanfan-in-batch-of.html

DAP = Diammonium Phosphate, also called yeast nutrient

OB = orange blossom honey


Wait a minute... You'd better not be laughing at my car!! :cool:

Oh, I'm not laughing at your car. Miatas are nifty and reliable little cars. I keep one in the trunk of my '58 Buick Limited as a spare in case the Buick breaks down :p

Sorry bro. Couldn't resist. It's actually a great idea. Let's start with the ones you don't know. Maybe that would be the most helpful?

FG
BJCB

SG = Specific Gravity
FG = Final Gravity
OG = Original Gravity
The difference between your Original Gravity and your Final Gravity (as measured with a hydrometer) is used to calculate the % alcohol. ABV = Alcohol By Volume.

BJCB = Beer Judge Certification Program. Here is the BJCB Style Guide (http://www.bjcp.org/2008styles/catdex.php) that provides the guidelines for judging of beers, meads and ciders. Meads are defined in guidelines 24-26.

And I think you mean JAO. Which stands for Joe's Ancient Orange. It's without a doubt the most frequently made (and of course, modified) mead recipe, as well as the topic of numerous forums and discussions. Named after Joe Mediola (sp?) The inventor.

That BJCP was pretty interesting.

Thanks, everyone, for the replies.

YAN = Yeast Available Nitrogen.

Just a quick correction. The "A" stands for "Assimilable," as in "Yeast Assimilable Nitrogen." (not that it matters all too much for our purposes)

Another one that pops up quite often here is LHBS.. I've always assumed it meant "Local HomeBrew Shop", but could be "Supply" I guess.

This seems to be a pretty comprehensive list of generally accepted texting and Web posting shorthand. Not mead specific but still helpful.

Thanks, I just posted the "definition" from that site I found. "Assimilable" in this context does make more sense than "available."

Another acronym that comes up is:

OP = Original Poster, the person who starts a thread.
