Been dreaming about making this for a while. The idea of a really hoppy mead entices me, as I feel like dropping a ton of hops in a high alcohol mead could be the perfect balance to its sweetness. I just wanted to open up the floor for any suggestions you guys may have for my recipe here.
For a five gallon batch...
3.13 Pilsner LME
5 lbs honey
few bags of decaf green tea
[hops- wondering which would be best]
[champagne or ale yeast]
my questions are...
In your opinion, is 3 oz of hops too much to add (1 oz of each: cascade, centennial, and summit)?
If you had to pick between an ale or champagne yeast which would you use?
