Here is my Juniper Mead recipe to date:
*Straight into fermentation vessel*
4# Blackberry Honey
1 stick cinnamon
half gallon spring water
1 star aniseed (whole)
0.5 tsp coriander seed (crushed)
2 stick cinnamon
2 tsp lemon juice
1 bag green tea (caffeine free)
0.5 oz ground ginger
0.5 tsp fennel seed (crushed)
Boiled ingredients, removed spices (except cinnamon and ginger) and added to fermenting vessel once cooled.
So I plan to add in a few juniper berries in a spice bag and allow to soak in the secondary until the flavor I am looking for shows up.
