I am wanting to try to make some mead however the only container that I had that would work (other than a plastic jug) for the amount of spare cash i had to spend on honey.. is a 1/2 gallon glass growler.
My main question is how much yeast should i put in. I have the Red Star Champaigne yeast that is new but not used from doing homebrew sodas.
I was planning on doing Joe's Ancient Orange Cinnamon Mean with 2#'s of honey. I figured I would do 1/2 of everything in the recipe - but wasn't sure if 1/2 teaspoon of my yeast would be equal to 1/2 teasponn of the Fleismann's (since the recipe calls for 1 teaspoon of Fleismann's.)
Any help will be greatly appreaciated - as I will probably be attempting this in about 2 hours
