So I've got a moderate amount of experience making beer, so confronted with the challenge of making an alcohol that I can't touch for quite some time I've become rather impatient with experimenting so I came up with an idea for the bottling phase:
I've got a 5 gallon batch (sack mead) on the way and in a little bit over a week will be ready to bottle it:
In each bottle I want to place a different ingredient
In one bottle acai, another cloudberry, orange in another, etc.
I will heat each of these ingredients enough to kill any competing yeast or bacteria.
As of right now I can't think of any reason that this will not work.
Sediments aside, do I have a good idea or am I dooming myself to swill a year from now?
Thanks for any advice, this is my first time making mead.
