Are you suppose to bring anything to a boil? It seems like you would want to after the grains were steeped and the dme was added. But I didn't see anything mentioned and I'm going to get a batch going soon.

Steep only - no boil.

This bad boy is bubbling away right now. I have a feeling this is going to be very, very good. I am glad I have a couple other batches going right now so that I can let this one get some age on it.

Thanks for sharing this recipe. I based my latest mead batch off this one. I'm basically making caramel mead (i hope). I put it in the primary yesterday and it was bubbling along by bedtime, one bubble every three seconds.

Given my hubby's preferences, I decided to forgo the apple, although I may try this at a later date including the apple.

Well, I'm going to tell ya' make twice as much as you think. It was soooo good. Even young. I'm already planning to make a 5 gal. batch (I already purchased the DME). I'm working on accumulating enough honey for a bigger batch. I only made 1 gal and only put up three bottles to age. My DH drank the entire sample I gave him and said, make more!

I put this into a primary last night. The only issue I had is that I used an exra lb of honey initially and my OG came out at 1.146!!! Im worried now that it may come out like rocket fuel because if it attenuates all the way it will be 18%. I read up on the yeast and accordingto the website the yeast should handle it, Im just worried about finished quality. Any thoughts or suggestion? anyone else ever come out this high??

Mine came out at 18% too. It was a bit harsh when I first tasted it, but I'm gonna let it sit for a year before I bottle it. So I expect it to mellow out a bit.
