Duct tape, pick your color
Until the snow turns yellow from cleansing flights, it isn't warm enough
Welcome to BS. I don't know what part of NH your in, but it isn't warming up much in my area!
Was that the temp after vaporization was done? I was under the impression that oxalic vaporized at ~312F
How did your test run go?
Looks nice. What glow plugs did you use?
Snow "breathes" pretty well, and the heat from the hives had melted an inch or more around the outside edges so no issues.
With the first days over freezing in a long time finally coming I decided it was time to check on some of my hives further from home. This is what I found at the first stop.
Well I am somewhat surprised to see it, but the ferment is pretty much done. I racked it out of the bucket and into a jug to let it clarify some more before bottling.
Some of this batch is...
Those bees will be well smoked by the time you get to your destination. Got to love the old 49cc two strokes
My hydrometer broke at the stem/bulb joint as I was taking it out of the tube the day I was starting so I don't know the exact SG reading and was going off of estimated quantities...
Corn cob smoke has been shown to be toxic to bees (in a limited research study). I would be cautious burning other corn products as well.
I pitched my first 1 gallon batch on Saturday that should be set to finish dry around 12-13%
I used 1 1/2 teaspoons of nutrient
Red Star Pasteur Champaign yeast
The ferment started out great...
Sounds neat and way over my head. There are several companies trying to make a commercial go of this same idea. Arnia in the EU and another here in the US that monitors give sound... All very cool,...
Although not a true indication in its own right, I have some hold back 2012 honey that is just now starting to crystalize. Never heated, and only screened through a stainless steel "pasta sieve".
Check it out on YouTube, lots of videos. FWIW, it didn't work well for me.
My wife is at UNH, we live in Durham
I like fish, fishing, fish tanks, etc
I am a man
Always liked #43, call it lucky, call it superstitious, it just seems to be a good number for me
I don't know, it looks like propolis might be helping to hold your wallet together... :thumbsup:
Beemandan - When you do your initial mead fermentation with the Champaign yeast do you add any acid, yeast nutrient, tannins, or use campden tablets in the brewing process? Or is it just the must and...
Hi Shalva, welcome to the forum. What university are you at?
Beepro that is like saying I have video proof showing pots of gold at the end of rainbows but won't publish them for fear of putting the gold miners out of business. If it is really so easy share,...
I would be curious to know if the fire/burning didn't cause a chemical change/degradation of the OA
Below is a link to the combustion equation of Oxalic Acid, in a prefect chemical reaction (open...
This was my reason for asking from another thread. As this seemed to be in Canada (and later posts state that the pollen is personally imported), I thought I would ask about availability. Just...
A spin off from another thread. Where can one buy irradiated bee pollen (Chinese or otherwise) in bulk?
