Just opened the first bottle of our mead this afternoon. Simple beginner recipe from Schramm's Compleat Mead book. Aged about 10 months...still a little harsh, so probably needs some more time. We didn't take a specific gravity at the beginning so no idea how alcoholic it is, but I can tell you I'm buzzed from this first glass!

And about the bride/groom champagne glasses - we recently got engaged and have decided to make a whole bunch of mead for the wedding, so these glasses seemed fitting!

Wow. There are much cheaper vodkas to use as airlock sterilizer.

This is the beginning of my first try. 1 day in. 15lbs honey, 2 gallons water, heated to 155 for 15 mins, 1 tsp yeast energizer, 2 more gallons water then mead yeast. I think I am missing something. Anyone?

You're likely going to want more nutrient or that ferment may stall, at the least it will simply take months to ferment out.

At what point should I add the nutrient? At 2ND ferment or now?

I add nutrient and energizer day 1 when I'm mixing everything up. other people do a staggered nutrient addition. which is adding nutrient and energizer over a few day.
