Mead Digest #25, 10/23/92
Ingredients: (for 2 gallons)
- 1 gallon, ocean spray cranberry juice (included a nice 1
gal glass ferementer!)
- 5 pounds, clover honey
- 1/2 teaspoon, yeast nutrient
- 1/2 teaspoon, acid blend
- a handful of raising Red star champagne yeast
I added a campden tablet to the juice (24 hrs) then pasteurized the
honey with water to make 1 gallon. I have two 1 gallon jugs for
fermenting. I'm still waiting for the lag to end and ferement to begin.
It has gotten cool in the basement, so I brought one upstairs, and
pitched another sachet of yeast into the two jugs.
