4 kg honey (unknown origins)
2.5 gr saffron
Yeast: Lalvin 71B-1122
Boil 2.5 kg of honey on low/medium heat until it caramelizes (ca 1 hour). Let it cool a bit and add the rest if the honey and water. Heat the must a little and let all honey dissolve. Add the saffron and stir a bit.
Let it cool and pour everything into the fermentation vessel, add yeast and nutrients and oxygenate the must (I do it by shaking the vessel).
Back sweeten to taste.
