So Many Plums...
 
1 Attachment(s)

So, I have had the wonderful luck of 30lbs of ripe plums that are available, so what else could I do, I had enough preserves from last year. I have 5 gallons of plum wine in the first fermentation, but had several pounds of honey laying around form a bee keeper friend and so I decided on plum mead. I made two batches using light and dark honey. I did not add any yeast, and the SG for the light was 1.121 and the dark 1.081. They fermented away nicely and today was the first racking. THe light had dropped to 1.022 and the dark to 1.038. They are both quite sharp, but have a lovely nose of plums an honey. I will be curious how they turn out. Here is a photo....
