Has anyone used Wyeast 4347 Eau de Vie?
How is this yeast? I ask because it seems to be the highest alcohol tolerance (21%) yeast Wyeast advertises. The local shop has a smack pack, and I was considering buying it to make a huge mead.
Is it a worthwhile endeavor to try and make a 21% mead? Any special considerations? How do I calculate the necessary amount of honey and target specific gravity to get there?
Thanks for the advice!
