I was talking to a guy about the beer he had brewed (a spruce tip porter). And the idea of a spruce tip/ginger mead popped into my head (A.D.D ya know), asking about his recipe he said that he aways boiled his stuff and added just the tea. He got all weird when I said that all I've ever done is
just thrown everything in a hop bag and in the ferment it goes, I guess I never worried about it because I use Lavin 1116 and the natural antbiotics of the honey, haven't had a bad batch yet. Whata think, to boil or not to boil this the question.
