This is way easy to make. To make 5 gallons, should be able to multiply most everything x5 to get what ya need with a couple exceptions. One, use the same amount of yeast from what I've read, do not up the amount. Two, don't up the whole cloves much, they are way powerful. I'm not sure about the cinnamon sticks, but I like cinnamon myself, so would probably up it as well. Good luck with this.

Oh the nutmeg and allspice, if you add those, remember that a little goes a long way with those spices.

Simple? Sure, it's easy as pie.

For 5 gallons, multiply everything x5 except for cloves and yeast. Use the same amount or at most x2 cloves, and the same amount of yeast would be enough.

Good luck

I started my first brewing/fermenting tuesday with 5 day sweet country cider and yesterday started a JAOM, following the directions to the letter. I hope it all works out!

Has anyone used Blood oranges for this? I just found some at the store last night and bought two and made this mead. I think it will have a nice red hue to it when it's done, or I hope so.

So why would I x5 the yeast as well? I mean if I'm making a larger batch wouldn't it need more yeast as well or would be adding more yeast ruin the taste of the mead? Sorry I just don't understand why more yeast would be a bad thing since I'm making a larger batch. Now since I'm making a larger batch will it cause the fermentation and aging time to be extended or will the times still remain the same. Thank you all for your advice though I will use it wisely and let yell know how my first batch turn out. I will also post pictures of the way things go and also turn out in the end.

Yeast is able to replicate and expand all over the must so it is not necessary to add more. You might get a quicker start from a bigger amount of yeast, but I have used always the same amount (1 little bag) for different capacities (1, 2, 3 gallons) and it works OK.

I'm going to make it sounds great!

I'm assuming all the same sanitary practices apply when making mead?

Does it matter what kind of bread yeast, I mean does it need to be active dry yeast or the rapid rise highly active yeast for this recipe?
