Hello here is my attempt at this beautiful sounding recipe. I have never made mead before. I had some at a brewery last night and decided to make some today. I used all the ingredients listed in the recipe, combined in a brew pot and heated until hot (175°F). I allowed the mix to cool to 80°F and added 5 tsb of yeast nutrient and LALVIN 71B-1122 WINE YEAST. My OG is spot on at 1.13. Only thing I did different was that I did not puree the strawberries. I mashed some and left a lot in their current frozen form. Here are some pics. Will keep you posted.
