    Default First Trad Batches (tupelo and meadowfoam) and ?? new location for Gotmead Calculator

    Good afternoon all:

    We think we are ready to try our hand at making a traditional mead. We have ordered (2) gallons of each meadowfoam and tupelo honey. We will make two batches. One of each type of honey.

    Q1 - Are there any suggestions for the best yeast to preserve/enhance the aromas of the Tupelo Batch and the Meadowfoam Batches? I saw a series of posts from Loveofrose about his meadowfoam but did not see the yeast identified.

    Q2 - Second, we were going to use the Gotmead Calculator to see if we could back into our recipes but I am not sure where is has been relocated to.

    Q3 - Would you suggest fermenting dry and backsweeting or ending the fermentation when the FG came in range?

    Batch 1 Tupelo
    Yeast - TBD
    Honey - 12 Pounds
    Water - unknown - goal to end with a FG of 1.005-1.010. What OG should I am for?


    Batch 2 Meadowfoam
    Yeast - TBD
    Honey - 12 Pounds
    Water - unknown - goal to end with a FG of 1.005-1.010 What OG should I am for?


    Thank you all!
