comment How much free (ie, fermentable) suger is contained in canned fruit puree and how does this affect gravity?
Don't forget that the part of the purée that's not sugar is mostly water which will dilute the beer. Depending on how much is water, you may end up actually lowering the final alcohol percentage.

comment Is delayed yeast activity normal?
Cold temperatures can also lead to a long lag time and slow fermentation.

comment Pomagranate mead sour
If you add sugar, it will just ferment. Check this site for advice on back-sweetening cider. Most of those posts apply to your situation as well. The simplest thing to do is make syrup from water and honey. Add a bit of the syrup to a glass of mead.

comment What characteristics does Halcyon and Maris Otter bring to beer?
For what it's worth I like a strong malt profile in my IPAs to balance the bitterness so use Maris Otter for almost all of them.

comment How to use priming sugar
Adding the beer to the sugar solution, rather than the other way around, helps with equally distributing the sugar.

comment Is juiced Ginger root fermentable?
In my experience, the anti-bacterial properties of ginger do not impede fermentation. Honey would work as well, but you might be surprised at how little honey flavour will survive the fermentation process. Lambic is made from barley and wheat, so in that sense, no you can't create a lambic style drink from ginger. But you can made a dry, slightly sour, alcoholic beverage.

comment Are my carboys going to break when my outdoor cider brew freezes?
The heat from fermentation is not a factor. Once the temperature drops below the yeast's operating range, fermentation will stop.
