Default Apple pie mead recipe

One of my favorite commercial meads is Apple Pie mead by Drake Brothers Mead here in columbus, Ohio. I have never brewed a cyser with apple pie type traits (caramel, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg flavors) and i was wondering if any of you fine brewers had any recipes you would like to share. Thanks in advance!

Its an amazingly delicious mead that sells out within a month after its release in october every year. I was lucky enough to receive a bottle for xmas last year, but at $35 a bottle and considering the difficulty in finding it I would love to be able to replicate it (or come close lol).

Vanilla, cinnamon, and nutmeg flavours are simple to get in there, caramel slightly less so.

Does the mead you're trying to replicate have flavours reminiscant of the crust?

Not that is determinable by my palate. Its a sweet dessert mead with cinnamonn apple aroma in the nose, fruity apples and lemon taste up front and finishes with a caramelly and vanilla sweet after taste. I plan on using high quality raw cider, clover honey, cinnamon stix, nutmeg, and a strip of vanilla bean but im not sure how to get the complex caramel filling type flavor.

Couldn't you caramelize some sugar, dissolve it in water and add it to the secondary?

I am making something similar to this. I started by lightly boiling my honey and starting with bochet, then I added cider to the carboy. In the primary I also added my vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg. Not sure if it will taste like apple pie, but it was the inspiration.

jaegersapper: Yup, look up recipes for caramel syrup and use it to backsweeten.

Originalsconnie: Unfortionatly you have to really boil the honey to get the caramel notes. My first cyser/botchet was supposed to be caramel, and I didn't get those flavour notes at all.

On the latest Beersmith Podcast (7/26) they had a guy from Moonlight Meadery, he talks briefly about his apple pie mead and some of the spices he puts into it.

here is a link.
