I am looking into making mead. I have always been interested and now that I have a Rossi 4L jug as well as a 1 gallon to secondary, I am ready to go. I want a VERY simple recipe to begin, and I hope to build off of it in the future.
So for simplicity's sake here is what I am going to go with.
3 lbs local clover honey
~1 gallon of water
Yeast nutrient and energizer as called for.
Now is there any problem with a recipe this simple? I am really looking to have an unspiced mead to start with so it will tell me what my tastes desire in order to build off of it.
