Recipe Sought

I have been making jams, chutneys, marmalades and butters for some time now and someone I work with is desperate for me to make some gooseberry, bramble apple and mint jam/jelly - but I can't find the recipe anywhere. Can anybody help me with such a concoction ? :study:

Bees...

This week, I counted 19 visiting honey bees on my sedum spectabile (Ice Plant) - it's the little things in life that make me happy :icon_smile:

Re: The Gravity of It All....

Thanks for all your help, guys. I normally just give the hydrometer a bit of a spin between my fingers to get rid of the bubbles attached to it. I bottled it last night as it looked good so will find out what it is like in 10 days or so......

Re: The Gravity of It All....

Thanks for that, Boboff ! My initial gravity was 1.35 and the latest was 1.20. Subtract one from the other and I get 0.15. Divide that by .0074 and I get 20.2 % !! Is that right ?

Re: Horseradish vodka

I can confirm just how good the HV is - I went to your recent book signing in Bristol and tried it there - I am sure my voice has now dropped two octaves :drunken:

The Gravity of It All....

Can anyone tell me how to work out the gravity of homebrew ? Mine started at 103 and is now 102 after a week - any idea what the gravity would be ?

Cheers m'dears :drunken:

Yeast'n'Things

Hope somebody out there can help ! I need yeast to make apple wine but in my brewing box of tricks, I have found some yeast nutrient and some super yeast wine compound. Will either of these do instead ?

Cheers ...
