Thank you Yooper for posting this recipe! I started my first batch yesterday. Easy peasy! (Thanks Joe!) I made some slight variations. We'll see how it turns out...
1) I used a large lemon instead of an orange.
2) I used coriander seed (1/2 tbsp. crushed) instead of cinnamon, clove, or allspice.
3) I used 3 lbs of honey instead of 3 1/2 lbs.
4) I used dry mead yeast. (Wyeast 4632)
I had read that sweet mead is like dessert wine, which I'm not a fan of, so I made these changes in hopes to get a refreshing and tart, dry mead. Thanks again!!
