Im thinking of trying the recipe below. Also I will add some yeast Energizer along with the Nutrient. I figure on brewing 12 cups of good Folgers smooth instead of the dark roast stuff and simply mixing in *4* pounds of honey for sweetness and then use kv-1116 to give it a kick.
However I was wondering what the acid blend adds to it.
Questions? Ideas? Tips? better recipes? ....LOL
(for 1 gallon)
· 3 ¼ lb. Honey Procedure:
· 12 cups Extra Strong Brewed Coffee
· ½ tsp. Acid Blend
· 1 tsp. Nutrient
· Water to make 1 gallon if needed
· 1 pkg. Pasteur Champagne Yeast
Brew coffee. Heat 6 cups of coffee with honey, skim if necessary. Add in nutrient and acid blend. Pour coffee and coffee-sugar mixture into carboy. Add enough water to make one gallon. When cooled, pitch yeast and attach an air lock. You may wish to use a blow-off tube. If you do, after the initial violent fermentation, attach a regular air lock.
Per Cheezer: "The Coffee Mead is good, but you definately need to have a love for coffee to drink it.
