Making Some Mead? Take a picture and send it to me! I will post it here on my website. Share your recipe too!

 

This page has grown to be quite big so I have split up the pictures across several pages.

 

 

Fermenting meadHere is a peach cobbler made by Tony. Wow, it looks good! He had to improvise his airlock and it's very clever!

Here is his recipe:

The recipe I used for the Peach Cobbler Mead/Melomel is as follows for 1 gallon:
4 lbs. Honey
1/3 pkg Yeast (I used an ale yeast I got from the craft beer store in town)
7 Peaches diced and frozen overnight, then thawed so there will be more juice
1 Vanilla Bean cut into 1/4 inch pieces and steeped with the yeast in warm water
Zest of 1 Lime
1 Orange zested before I diced it up
1/2-2/3 Gallon of distilled water

1/4 tsp Nutmeg
1/2 tsp cinnamon

warmed the water and honey to 120. Add the cherry juice, nutrient, cinnamon and the nutmeg. Brought temp up to 170, then shut off heat. Cooled in ice bath in the sink until it reached about 100. Poured into galss carboy, added water to one gallon. Shook for 5 minutes. Let sit until must reached below 90 degrees, then pitched yeast.

 

Glasses of meadHere is a batch of now bottled mead made by Ann and Theodore! I love the label. Here is what she says:
We bottled our first plain mead and I'm sending you a photo. It came out good, a slight dry sherry or amontillado taste.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here is a batch of mead made by Rosemary. It is a melomel with Oranges. And to protect it from the light she made her own cover out of fabric as a slip-cover! Wow, this mead has a wonderful look to it! I am resisting the urge to call it a Rosemary mead because of her name but she didn't actually put any Rosemary in it!
