3 Gallon Recipe:
|8.25# Clover Honey||
.5oz Yeast Nutrient
|Wyeast #3632, Dry Mead|
Bring 3 gallons of water to a boil. Add honey and boil for 30 minutes. Add yeast nutrient 5 minutes before end of boil. Cool to approximately 70-75°F and pitch yeast. Ferment in primary for 3 weeks, secondary 7 weeks. (Use glass carboys for both primary and secondary fermenters.) Original Gravity 1.100 - Final Gravity 0.998. Percent Alcohol 14.5! Bottle without priming. If a sparkling mead is desired, prime with 1/4 to 1/3 cup of corn sugar.
This batch has been aging in the bottle for 14 months now and is just starting loose it edge. Mead can take a very long time to mature and mellow. It is beginning to become enjoyable and seems to have great potential.
