from my property in west virginia. I tried a paw paw melomel @ home brewers northern ohio last spring. It was very good. any ideas on recipe (ive got three and a half pounds of strained juice)? Only made one mead to date (cherry melomel) back in june. prefer one gallon as I am new to mead game. thanks

I'm thinking keep it simple following basic meadmaking principles (http://www.gotmead.com/component/option,com_smf/Itemid,103/topic,3495.0)...

3 lbs of Orange Blossom Honey
3.5 lbs paw paw juice
Water to one gallon
71b Lalvin Yeast rehydrated in goferm if possible.
1/8 tsp Fermaid K (if available)

Dr k, I would *so* like to get my hands on some paw-paws! Are you interested in selling or trading for some? I'm in North Carolina.....
