Thread: First Cysler (or anything)

  1. Default First Cysler (or anything)

    Hi all, heres my first attempt at mead. I used Thirsty Vikings cysler recipe pretty much, + or - a few details.

    5 gallons of apple cider with no additives
    15 lbs of generic store bought honey (next time im ordering)
    1 pack lalvin k1-v1116 yeast.

    Note: did not pasturize, did not boil,cleaned and sterilized the kitchen with a vengence that made housemates quite happy.

    started: 11/14/2004

    transfered to secondary fermentor 12/04/2004
    (waited a little longer than prescribed since my apartment is cold and wanted to give yeasties more time)

    sampled some of what wouldnt fit in secondary... i know it is greener than green, but was very tasty.

    I'll add more when theres more to add
    any advice would be most helpfull

    Yah Cyser was my first too. It's a month and a half old and drinkable though i'd like it to get a little age on it before we go for a few rounds... Cold stabalized a week ago and now i can nearly read a book through it... not quite but it looks like lovely golden goodness! I'm awefully excited i've even got the lables designed.
