PostSubject: Mead Recipes   Fri 09 Jul 2010, 11:40 am


Here are a bunch of recipes on how to make mead. Mead is very adaptable and that means the recipes are also adaptable and varied. You can change mead significantly by doing things at different times such as pitching in flavors, fruits and spices before it ferments or even pitching them in after the ferment is done.

Important note about pitching yeast into a batch of mead. One of the most important things you should know about yeast is that it needs lots of oxygen to grow well. So after you make a batch of materials and have mixed it real well so it is homogenous you then pitch the must into it. Now you have to stir it vigorously for five full minutes so it gets aerated real well. Always do this and use an electric mixer if you would like to. Get lots of oxygen into the brew!

Beginning mead maker and looking for a recipe that is exotic, tasty yet very easy? You have got to try the orange clove recipe at the bottom of this page. Hands down one of the best recipes there is and it has such a wonderful taste. This mead is also perfect for heating up and drinking on special occasions, holidays or cold winter nights. Seriously give this one a try, you won't be disappointed.

Let's Start out with the simplest three recipes:

Dry Mead

* 12 lbs. of Honey
* 4 gallons of spring water
* 2 teaspoons of yeast nutrient
* 2 teaspoons of yeast energizer
* 2 packets of Lalvin 71b-1122 yeast (or a suitable replacement)

Medium Mead

* 15 lbs of Honey
* 4 gallons of spring water
* 2 teaspoons of yeast nutrient
* 2 teaspoons of yeast energizer
* 2 packets of Lalvin 71b-1122 yeast (or suitable replacement)

Sweet Mead

* 18 lbs of Honey
* 4 gallons of spring water
* 2 teaspoons of yeast nutrient
* 2 teaspoons of yeast energizer
* 2 packets of Lalvin 71b-1122 yeast (or suitable replacement)

These three recipes are the simple and no problem way to make a basic and great tasting mead. The only difference between them is the amount of honey you put into the must.

Orange Clove Mead (This is one of the best recipes, tastes great and is easy to make. If you are looking for a first recipe to try I recommend this one.

Interesting flavor and makes 1 gallon

* 1 gallon of Spring Water
* Yeast: Fleishcmanns (1 packet)
* 25 Raisins
* 1 Cinnamon stick
* 1 whole orange, sliced and peels included
* 1 pinch of allspice
* 1 pinch of nutmeg
* 3 1/2 pounds of clover honey
* 1 whole clove

Simply mix all the ingredients then pitch your yeast. Caring for this mead? The beautiful thing about this mead is that you can rack it off of all the oranges and raisins any time you want to, or you can just leave it all in there. When the oranges sink to the bottom you are ready to drink it or bottle it.. Simple as that. I recommend you bottle it and let it age for a couple more months. This recipe is just simply delicious.
