I like it. Can you get this together soon so we can get supplies together.

Hightest, how does the posted recipe look to you? I'm thinking I might need some pectic enzyme in there. Yes/no?

The recipe looks quite nice. Although fresh cherries have pectin, I'm not sure if it's a concern with dried cherries. Yet, it can't hurt to add the appropriate amount of pectic enzyme.

My thoughts....
  • Consider macerating the dried cherries in cherry juice rahter than in water
  • Make sure the dried cherries do not have preservatives added.
  • 71B might be a better choice for enhancing the fruit character of this mead
  • I do not find it necessary to aerate every 12 hours, or twice daily, unless the OG is > 1.130
  • Consider using my "new" yeast pitching technique discussed earlier this week

You did ask...

I'm going to be at least a week, maybe over a month late on making this, but I will definitely make it. It sounds delicious!!

Yeah, the next brew I do is going to be my port, but ironically it is a cherry vanilla, with a mix of dried and canned cherries. But assuming I can get another carboy opened up, I will do this one as well. I may just be late by a bit.
