Racked to secondary after about 2 and a half weeks.

Gravity 1.001

Taste: decent at best, but tasted like it has great potential after aging and backsweetening.

Well this was a "It's saturday and I'm bored, lets see what HBT recipes I can find for the fermantables that I have" cupboard search. Lo and behold, I had what was needed for a 2gal batch of this. After the wife checked my math and gave the "its 10pm and you wanna brew?" talk, I was off. Heres what I got.

Grandma's Apple Pie Mead, 2gal
1gal apple joice (motts)
1gal apple cider
2 or so pounds wildflower honey
6.4oz brown sugar
6.4oz corn sugar
11.2grams nutmeg
2 sticks, cinnamon


OG 1.093 (6APR)
SG 1.020 (14APR)
I'll be taking FG when I get home

flavors are still quite hot, but its very tastey!

Went to Fairway Market to buy a gallon of organic cider (sold in a glass carboy) for $9. I've got everything except for the corn sugar. I wonder if regular white sugar will be OK? Guess I'll find out.

I do believe I'll be making this. Although the technical term for this (absolutely tastey) beverage would be a cyser, not a mead. Either way, this will be bubbling away in my primary by sunday. Cheers!

Since I had all the ingredients on hand, except the yeast which I had to pick up, I decided to give this a go, sounds tasty. I did a 1 gallon batch. I'm going to have to see how the fermentation goes though. I'm not real sure of the yeast (Lalvin EC 1118) that I got from my local shop (mediocre place at best), I'll have to keep an eye on it the next few days. The LBS doesn't store their yeast in a climate controlled environment, just in a cardboard box on the counter which is why I made that statement.

Also, how much yeast nutrient and pectin are folks adding to this? I haven't added either yet. I have the nutrient but will have to pick up some pectic enzyme.
