View Full Version : Tastes good but kind of yeasty.

I made a 5 gallon batch of warranty voided "Quick Grape Mead". I used grape juice, tart cherry juice and cranberry juice instead of just the grape. I racked it onto the campden and potasium sorbate and back sweetened per the instructions about 2 weeks ago. It is clearing nicely but I decided to rack it again to get it off the lees and get a taste. It tastes good but has a yeasty taste to it. Will further ageing get rid of this or did I do something wrong??

Is it very clear? If not, it isn't surprising you taste yeast.

Age & further clearing will usually get rid of yeasty flavors.

It's not totally clear yet so maybe that's it. I'll let it age for a while and try it again. Thanks for the responses.
