- 32 oz. Pineapple Coconut Juice (also with some grape juice)
- 1 pineapple chopped and lightly mashed
- 1/2 tsp. Pectic Enzyme
- 1 pkg Lavline D47 Yeast
- Water to Approx 1.5 gallon (US)
I mixed the honey and juice and mixed thoroughly. I then added water to about 1.5 gallon.
SG was 1.084.
The must is quite cloudy. Not sure how well this will clear in the end, but we'll just have to wait and see. (tastes really good, though)
Very interesting with the Coconut Juice and mashed up pineapple as well! I have a feeling your is going to be a much stronger pineapple and coconut taste.
Might take more time to mellow out the acidity of the pineapple though.
My mead was really cloudy during fermentation but after it stopped I transferred it to secondary and have been letting it sit and it has clarified quite a bit!
