I'm waiting for my first batch of high meat, let's see...

I was tested 1 month ago and everything was good(test wise)

Next time try to fill the bottle more.

Avoid direct exposure to sun light as it can degrade enzymes and kill bacteria by radiation.

Yeast starts growing significantly at ~ 60F, the higher the faster, as long as it's not more than ~100F(when enzyme and microrganisms start to die)

Yeah, you could find a warmer place, keep in mind that warm air has less density so the highest shelf of the counter will be the warmest.

The bottle is not completely full. There are maybe 5cm empty before the balloon starts. So maybe it needs more time to also fill up this space.
Does it have to be stored in the dark? I have it now in our pantry, which is open, but dark-ish. Maybe i will not get to 68F in there. Maybe relocating to a warmer place might help, is there a minimum temperature required for things to get going? Or will it just take longer at lower temperatures?

It is raw unheated honey indeed, with (reverse osmosis) filtered tap water :-)

In Europe not all fridges are frost free, most of them they are not, and they make the meat wet and rot.
My brain fog it's maybe related to them, because when I eat completely raw I don't get that headache, but I don't really know.

My fridge does make the high meat mouldy, but I eat it anway - have not had problems because of it, and I eat like 1 lbs at one meal when I have it. I saw videos of Vonderplanitz where his meat was very mouldy, he seemed fine with it.

The brain fog, do you have the possibility to take a general blood test, see where you are, especially in terms of vitamin B12 and vitamin D ? In UK one can order a blood test at home, and the results displayed online on a website that one has access to.

Hi Poppy,
I don't understand very well the process but I have also felt the difference from chlorinated water to spring water

Great Tony  ;)

Hi Mark
Hmm, I'm not exactly sure, but less than a week.
Haw much have you filled the bottle? There has to be little room for the gas in order to inflate the baloon asap.
The soonest the better because when the baloon inflates there's nothing going into the mead as gas is leaving non stop.
I think it should have been inflated already, but don't worry.
What's your temperature? I have mine in the counter, it'll be like 68 F there.
It is raw unheated honey, isn't it? It's somehow silly to ask that in this forum, but just in case hahah
Keep me informed :)

How long does it usually take before the balloon becomes inflated? I made my batch on 09-09, now there is a sediment growing on the bottom of the bottle, but there is no gas forming yet. That is normal? Do i need more patience?  ;)

It took me a long time (and i think im still not really used to it) to figure out portion size when eating raw. My plate sometimes looks very empty, but still my body tells me im done with food. Since raw meat is so easy on the body i do not check in with my stomach usually. Because my stomach will always feel 'empty'. When im really done with eating is when i do not feel like eating anymore. The food really start to loose flavor in my experience and eating starts to feel like something im doing against my will. I also never feel the typical SAD hunger anymore. In my case 'hunger' feels more like becoming slow in the brain and sleepy/weak in the body. I personally many times do not feel like eating at all, I still do it because im trying to gain some weight/fat. But im not sure whether it is really smart to go against what my body tells me.

Kitkat bar, haha, i used to love those. Haven't tried them in probably 2 years. I doubt they will still be as tasty as they once were. Never have any craving for any of that stuff anymore.

The Vax situation is f*cked. I work in the Netherlands for a big tech company, so i think it will be a matter of time before they also start with mandatory Vax. I have saved up a lot of money over my last 5 years of working so i have some buffer. My work is very relaxed and i get by with doing very little and getting payed well, although i do not like the job at all. I think i will stay for now, but i will eventually have to make a switch to a more meaningful job, with or without the forcing of the vax. Is your boss already harassing you about the Vax? All the media is fearmongering, to ruin your life basically. And your worrying might at the moment not be needed, worrying about the future is even more pointless, who knows what will happen maybe your boss/company will not agree with Biden and also not mandate anything. It would be better to spend your energy in this moment to constructively think about your options. I'm for instance, already doing as much homesteading as possible (i would like to buy some more land one day). Learning the skills and technics for growing food, learning how to sew, preserve food etc etc. These things keep me busy, i learn stuff and im not spending time engaging in the fear mongering of the media. If you know which changes you want to make in your live anyway, start with them now :-). For you, maybe you can have a look at where the conditions seem better in the US? I hear there are quite some states that do not go along as hard as some other states. Maybe it is time to move?

I think the vax will at best not do you any harm, but i really doubt it. I cannot be good for your health. Taking any kind of pill is not good for you health i would say. It might help with some symptoms, but your health will always deteriorate slowly due to not fixing the cause of the symptoms and slow poisoning due to chemicals. I would take my changes with 'health benefits' and not worry about that. Unfortunately in the Netherlands it is mandatory to have health insurance. So i 'have' to throw away 80 euros (that is the cheapest i can find, but of course it gets higher every year) per month on it.

What I ate today... some raw beef (left over from yesterday), supermarket cooked shrimp (it was pink not gray like the uncooked kind, but still cold), raw bone marrow with raw honey, and, my cheats - DD frozen matcha latte and a kit kat bar.  I think the latte cravings are for the creamy dairy in them.  The raw marrow is really creamy when it gets room temperature.  It's so good.  But I still have a hard time eating adequate calories when eating raw meat.

I'm worried right now.  So worried about whether I will be forced to take the jabb in order to keep my job.  I guess I could decide to be fired from my job for not taking it and preserve my health, which is already bad to begin with.  I actually have a problem that is under control through medication but I haven't specifically mentioned it here.  People who are on this medication have children with birth defects if they take it during pregnancy.  But it keeps my condition under control, to the point that I don't even realize I have it most of the time.  Some people who have gone off the medication have had their condition return after one or two years, even worse than previously.  I am afraid of how the jabb will make me deteriorate, maybe make my condition worse than ever.  So scared.  But what are my choices?  If I am fired, then what will I do?  I can't get another job because then every employer is going to make the jabb a condition for employment, and most of the other jobs will pay less than the one that I have.  It would have to majorly overhaul my life in order to not be forced to have this against my will - become homeless or something.  I hate Byden.  He is a terrorist thug.  With his speech, he has basically said to all Americans, "It's your money or your life."  If we give up our life (take the jabb) then we can keep our money (job).  If we keep our life (not take jabb), then we must give him the money (give up our job). Just like a thug in a dark alley.  He is despicable.  It should never come to the point where some greedy idiot in DC makes a decision concerning my private health. 

I want to be free, live without so many possessions anymore so that I don't have to worry about "losing" things.  Just get rid of possessions because they hold you back.  The big one that ties everyone to their jobs in the US is the "health benefits" (as if anyone has actually benefited from them in the past 4 decades... we just get sicker and sicker here in the US).  If you have no insurance, you better own nothing at all because the "heroes" in the healthcare field must be paid greatly for their good deeds... it's not done out of the goodness of their hearts.
