    Default Interesting Podcast....

    http://www.beersmith.com/blog/2011/0...th-podcast-20/

    Found this podcast online. Thought it might be useful for newbees like me. It's about 40mins long and covers:

    Topics in This Week’s Episode (38:22)

    This week’s guest is Curt Stock, the 2005 AHA Mead Maker of the year and long time homebrewer.
    Curt discusses the basics of mead – any fermented drink made from honey
    He explains the mead making process including what you need to brew mead if you are already brewing beer
    We talk about how you can use modern techniques to keep the yeast healthy and significantly reduce the time needed to make mead (down to a few months)
    Curt shares his thoughts on honey and where to get it
    We talk through mead yeast and what Curt recommends for most meads
    Nutrients are a critical part of mead-making as the yeast will not thrive without them. Curt shares the nutrients he uses as well as how to adjust your pH.
    Aeration is critical for mead throughout the meadmaking process. Curt tells us when and how to oxygenate your beer, when to stop doing it and how to remove some of the CO2 later in fermentation to aid in fermentation
    We talk about fruits and spices used to make many popular meads and when to add them
    Curt shares his thoughts on clarity and enhancing clarity
    We talk about making the leap from beer brewing to mead making
    Curt shares his final thoughts on mead making

    Thanks for sharing. I had the privilege to talk to Curt over some mead at this year's NHC, and it was very informative. I'm glad to see he's just as willing to share his thoughts and process on the podcast, since it sure helped me.
    Find what you like, and hone it to perfection.

    And don't serve dodgy mead!
