Pineapple Melomel
3 gal Pineapple Juice
3 Cups Black Tea
10 lbs Wildflower Honey
1 packet Champagne Yeast

This all-natural recipe yields great results. Add tea to about a quart of water and boil for 20 min. Remove from heat and add honey, stir in well. . skimming off any scum if it rises. Cool to blood temp. In meantime, prepare yeast starter. Add pineapple juice to 5 gal. carboy, then pour in cooled must. Top with water. Pitch yeast. Use a blow-off tube initially as primary fermentation may be vigorous. Rack to secondary in 10-14 days. Rack every 30 days until clear. Bottle. Age forever - starts off pretty green.

The original gravity may change based on the brand of juice you use. This will be a dry mead but you can stabilize and back sweeten.
