    May do try some dry meads, metheglins, and maybe a sparkling depending on the time and money I have after making the above.

    Sounds delicious. Are they all going to be 1 gallon batches?

    Looks like a lot of mead, and a lot of fun.

    Dry sparkling meads can be very nice, thinking of which, I should really make some more of those .... ;-)

    Wow, I wish I had good enough temperatures to support fermentations throughout the summer! Even with the AC going to make it 68-70, it's on the high end for most yeasts, and the increase in the bucket caused by the ferment itself seems to end things up around 74 degrees. In my experience, just a little too high for a non-fusel ferment. I'm going to add more ventilation in the attic this summer, maybe I'll be able to more efficiently keep the temperature a little lower.

    Yeah its funny because in the winter, my bedroom upstairs is the warmest room wich allows me to keep the mead at a decent temperature in the winter but in the summer I have to move everything down into the basement ... it is actually pretty cold in my basement during the summer
