Thread: making a dry mead to blend with desert mead

  1. Default making a dry mead to blend with desert mead

    3 gallons total

    half gallon- one gallon of water
    2 gallons white grape juice
    9 lbs honey
    lalvin 116 yeast

    the gravity wound up being Way too high at 1.15 and now its stuck / finished at 1.052

    I want to make another 3 gallon batch that goes completely dry and blend them together to get something drinkable

    how much honey would you all recommend for another 3 gallon batch so that it will go completely dry and not taste bad when I blend it?

    maybe like 5 lbs? 3 lbs?
    regardless of how much honey I use, if it goes totally dry the final gravity after blending will be the same correct? So mostly I'm worried about it not tasting watered down. should I use a little bit of the same grape juice or just go honey?

    Using 2.5 to 3 pounds per gallon should work fine.

    When you do mix in the dry mead it can allow the fermentation to restart.
