What types of fruit did you use and how much of each ? Some fruits work better in mead than
others and I usually use at least a pound of fruit per gallon, at least for the several
melomels that I've d...

Eh.. eh, calm down, calm down (for best effect should be said in a scouse accent, but most of

get it to th...

BTW, the OP asked for opinions. I've given mine, you've given yours. Obviously we don't agree
on yeast choice. Leave it at that.Huh, so you give your opinion, and I give mine, then you can
take a dump...

I wouldn't even consider using bread yeast for mead. With how much honey can cost, don't cheap

p.s. I tried to play around w/ hopville beercalculus, but it indicated that my origional 40 lbs
(5 gallons) of apple jiuce would give me an OG of 1.150, and each lb of brown sugar would
increase by 0....

I think you will be disappointed with the outcome because your using motts. I would only use

in the outco...
