    i have some im just not sure if i need to use it. if i do use it sould i add it to the primary or to the secondary?

    pectic enzyme ?

    i might add some vanilla and or cinnamon to each secondary

    thanks for the help

  2. Default Re: pectic enzyme and blue berry puree

    Whenever I use fruit in my mead, I use pectic enzymes. Even if it is a puree.

    As far as head space is concerned, the primary fermenter is not where you need to worry about it. There will be so much CO2 released that your mead will be protected from oxidation there. When you rack it and the CO2 production decreases, you need to have as little head space as possible.

    FWIW, I didn't use any pectic enzyme in a blueberry melomel I just bottled and it clarified beautifully.
