Ginger root peeled and diced into my little finger digit size, boiled for 30 mins. then poured into the cool water of the bucket.

Sharp, strong and way too sweet, bubbling good though (about every 10 seconds, still quite active, nice golden color almost amber. 65F basement, I put the heat belt on it, I'm worried it's too sweet or a stuck ferment. . . 30 second bubble. 3/3/06 racked, still 9 % sugar, broke a yeast packet, will pitched it tomorrow, beautiful clear amber color. after work carried the carboy to the upstairs bath heated floor, racked 3 times, pitched yeast into open bucket with nutrient, covered with plastic, floor at 82F mead @ 74-5F.
