Today my fiancee and I started a batch of mead. It is the first batch we have made in our new home and it is going to be the batch that we give out at our wedding in a little over 4 months.
Here are the stats:
- 11 pounds Buckwheat honey
- 5 pounds Wildflower honey
- 6 gallons total beginning volume
- Lalvin D-47 wine yeast
- 3 tsp yeast energizer
- 3 tsp yeast nutrient
- 1.103 initial specific gravity
I am hoping for something sweet to give our guests. If it is boring when it is time to bottle, I may sneak a little tart cherry juice into the batch.
