Dan, how do you make the honey vinegar?
The basics are pretty straightforward. Begin by making mead. I would mix honey and water to a specific gravity that resulted in an alcohol content lower than that rated for the yeast I was using. I wanted complete fermentation.Dan, how do you make the honey vinegar?
I had a friend who tried to make mead. Got poured down the drain. Found out that if you use honey with natural yeast you are gambling that the yeast is a good one. What we read about this is that it is either really good or really bad. So maybe something to sterilize of kill natural yeasts, and then use a proven commercial variety.I've made wine.
I've made whiskey.
I've made beer.
When I had some extra "play" honey, I made mead..... it was the most disgusting thing ever and I pitched it and have zero inclination to try again.
What a disaster that was!
