You can go either way, a lot of folks have had great success using the staggared nutrient additions method outlined in the sticky in the mead forum. It's a bit more work but it does work well. My first meads were just 3tsp nutrient up front, that may do ya fine too.

Blackberry on top. Apple cyser and raspberry on bottom. Hope these turn out. Used an eau de vie yeast coming close to 20% abv.

Mead made from heather honey (very dark and with lots of flavours). Love the resulting colour and it's quite tasty. It's like instant metheglin.

That's gorgeous, is it dry or sweet?

hi, can you please share your recipe for this cyser? I've made two myself, but I would like to compare as these were my first kicks at it.

thanks,

It ended up with a final gravity around 1.010. There is some sweetness that creates a very nice balance with the rather spicy flavours.

The light cherry cyser. Nice and drinkable, at about 8% ABV.

That's an amazing color! Is it straight apple or is there something else in there as well?

It's local wild flower honey with local, fresh apple cider. It turned out wonderfully! I almost want to stare more than drink... ALMOST.
