Fig mead recipe
2 gal. batch
7.5 lbs honey
1 TBS yeast - Prise de Mousse
Assorted yeast nutrients (as prescribed in the faq sheet)
All of the water used will have been steeped with the figs. Most likely 2 lbs. fresh.
1st racking onto .5lb to 1lb of dried figs.
2nd racking to include a spice – 1 cinnamon stick at this moment, open to ideas.
Planning on using the Bochet technique

Please any thoughts are most welcome.

Tim

I've never made a bochet mead, but it seems like that would definitely get rid of any fig aroma or flavor from the water, and overwhelm anything from primary. I think if you're going to do a fig bochet, maybe make a bochet mead and a separate fig mead, then blend them. That way, you can do maybe 20% bochet and 80% fig mead to control the balance of the flavors.

I'd be curious what others think, though, especially those who have made or tasted a bochet.
