First mead, a cyser actually. Recently returned to world of fermentation. Completed a 3gallon batch of hard cider(3 separate 1 Gallon carboys), and have done a good bit of reading about mead. Decided to go for a cyser.
1/2gallon honeycrisp apple cider
3lb mesquite honey
6oz orange juice
1/2tsp acid blend
1tsp yeast nutrient
handful organic white raisins
water to top of 1gallon carboy
pitched with cote de blanc yeast
1st rack completed after one week.
Please share any comments or advice you may have........
