Hello all
First thank s to every one for all the imfo! I have been reading for a while and am on my second gallon batch first batch found some where on the net was :
3# honey
bread yeast -yea I know but i had not found this site yet
Teaspoon lemon juice
cup of strong black tea
This was made 5 month ago it is drinkable. I finally found some store bought mead to compare it to this week, oliver winery camelot mead my home made is heavier but similar taste
second batch cycer
Pateurized apple juice
1# buckwheat honey
2# clover honey
red star champagne yeast
1 tsp id carlson yeast nutrient
racked after 1 month and again yesterday after 2 months
took a sip after racking and it is good!
I would like to make something similar to the camelot mead and need a recipe
Also what would be a good yeast to keep around for general use ? I like semi sweet most of the time
Again thanks to every one for all the imformation here
