Re: First Sweet Mead
I haven't made a mead but I made small boards batch of cyser that is fantastic. A pound of honey and organic apple juice to make a half gallon... using EC-1118.
The fermentation was very slow and at cool / low temps in my attic this past winter. It's sweet with nice apple and honey flavors, and a very respectful alcohol level.
I'll need to do a small amount of mead in the Fall/Winter when it's cool again. I prefer a slow fermentation. I have recently started to bottle some keeved cider that I started in late November.
Trying to think inside the box...
