Mead Making Equipment on

Here is a complete selection of everything you need to get started in your Mead Making. There are also a couple of alternative choices that I give you depending on the size of the batch you want to make whether it be a 3 gallon batch or a 5 gallon batch.

Lalvin D47 Yeast

Lalvin ICV D-47 Yeast A vigorous white wine yeast that will leave a wine very full bodied with enhanced mouthfeel. Accentuates varietal character and contributes ripe tropical fruit and citrus notes. Recommended for Chardonnay and Rose as well as mead, when nutrients are supplemented. Whites, rose, mead.


Lalvin EC-1118

Lalvin EC-1118 Yeast- AKA Prise de Mousse. Saccharomyces bayanus. A low foaming, vigorous and fast fermenter good for both reds and whites. It is also ideal for ciders and sparkling wines. A very competitive yeast that will inhibit wild yeasts. It will restart stuck fermentations because of good alcohol and sulfite tolerance. This is a very neutral yeast that will have very little effect on the varietal character of the grape. A popular strain that ferments fully and flocculates well producing compact lees. Good for cool fermentations. Champagne, dry reds, whites, ciders and sparkling. 45-95° F (7-35° C)


Lalvin K1 - V1116

Lalvin K1-V1116 Yeast- A vigorous and competitive fermenter that, because of its neutral effect on varietal character, is very well suited to fruit wines as well as wines to be made from grapes. Grapes and fresh fruit. 59-86° F (15-30° C)


One gallon carboy

If you have never made mead and would like to give it a try very inexpensively this is a terrific setup. Very inexpensive and Prime shipping too. You get a gallon glass carboy an airlock and the rubber stopper. I love this setup. Fermenter including Rubber stopper and Airlock

You can have a batch of mead going the day this arrives.

Already have gallon jugs? You can keep the price of mead making down even further here by just buying a pair of airlocks and bungs.
