Awesome give us an update. I will be checking mine on Tuesday as that is week three. I guess I should be going to secondary then right?

Going to secondary just depends. It might be ready in 3 weeks...might take 5. Trust the hydrometer, and your tongue. If its way too sweet, its still got sugar to ferment, and racking will just stall or halt fermentation, especially if you're past 50%. that much alcohol, and removing that much healthy yeast....not good.

bottling the apfelwein took longer than I planned (had to clean and delabel some bottles). I'll probably mess with MAOM on Saturday.

Its bottled now. FG was 1.005
crystal clear.

already drinkable, but past experience with all meads tells me it'll improve with some aging.

Sounds like a nice "quick" mead for a first try at mead...I may have to make a batch of this too I've had mead on my list since I started homebrewing!

Default Saturday!


Hi Malkore,

I've been threatening to make a mead for a couple years, and when I found this forum just about the first thing I did was search for mead recipes. Found yours and this Saturday I am going to make it. Made a change or two for 3 gallons instead of 2 and for local available ingredients being different, but we'll see how it goes. Going to make a coffee stout at the same time just in case I need something to cry into if I screw up the mead. haha.

Anyway, thanks for the recipe.

Never made JAOM, but I've used bread yeast before, and it does NOT produce a superior mead.

JAOM is meant to be an easy recipe, with easy to acquire ingredients. EVERYONE has a grocery store with bread yeast. Many do NOT have a store that stocks wine or mead yeast (or any brewing yeast for that matter).

Hell the state of Nebraska only has 2 or 3 brew stores, all on the eastern region.
