Thread: Way to calculate Gravity when blending meads before you actually mix?

  1. Default Way to calculate Gravity when blending meads before you actually mix?

    I have 3 gallons of mead that is dry at 1.01, and 6 gallons of mead that's sweet and stuck at 1.06
    Is there a way to calculate what the gravity will be when / if I mix all 9 gallons together?

    meadcalc has a blending utility. According to it your FG for the blended 9 gallons will be 1.043.

    Have you tried to restart the stuck fermentation? Sometimes it's as easy as adjusting the pH, which has saved 12 gallons for me.
    It goes ding when there's stuff.

    Steve Piatz has an extreme discussion of blending in his new book. Lots of good stuff.

    To calculate any blend add the total of all gravity points and divide by the new total volume. 10 points per gallon in a 3 gallon batch = 30 points. 60 points per gallon in the 6 gallon batch = 360 points. 30 + 360 = 390 total points, 360 / 9 gallons = 43.3 or 1.043
