Default Muscadine mead

Hello!

I have 9 gallons of muscadine wine (jack keller's) recipe working in my secondaries... Things went so well that I went out and picked my vines again and came up with after squeezing 3 gallons of pure juice - I was thinking about making a muscadine honey mead/pyment ... My question is how much honey should I add to get to a good starting point... These grapes were very ripe so as is the juice is
1.060
8 pa
16 brix
I plan on using pure juice so my volume should be 3 gallons.

Thanks
Kevin

Default A year later

In case anybody does a search and finds this post - I made the muscadine pyment / mead and wow! A year later I opened the first bottle and it is amazing! You can buy muscadine wine but you cant find a muscadine pyment. Do yourself a favor - give it a try.

Well by all account, muscadines make a good, if slightly unusual tasting wine, so there's no reason why they shouldn't make a bloody good mead too.

I was reading something a while back about why some of the traditional grape varieties don't do so well in the SE of the US, certainly not like they do across the western side, but muscadines do very well, so why not.......

If we got the heat and humidity here, I'd certainly give them a try......
