I'm new into mead making, but I will take the plunge tomorrow. I have thought out a recipe (for about 5 litres) which I think is almost fool proof:
3 litres water
0.75 litres Apple Juice (not from concentrate)
1.8 kg organic wildflower honey
Juice from one organic lemon
Kitzinger Sauternes yeast
These ingredients will be used from the start. Later on, when I have got the mead moved from the first carboy to the second one, I will add cubes of fresh apples to get a freshness to the mead - BUT I'm worried about wild yeast would make it ferment a second time, should I skip this step?
My hopes are that it will make a "fresh", mild flavored medium-sweet mead.
Are there anything I should be aware of regarding my homemade recipe?
