For the candy mead it is only a few months old so I dont know how much the flavours will separate, potentially ruining the candy flavour. Its a bit of everything mix.

The candy smell came mostly from the 4 flavour frozen fruit I added. Tastes delicious right now though (except the standard young flavours). Another couple of months to smooth it out somewhat and I will be finishing it off pretty quickly. If I had empty carboys I would put on another.

added for 5L
1kg Frozen mixed Grape, Blackberry, Strawberry and Raspberry
ocean spray 1.5L bottle of Cranberry & Blackcurrent juice
750g multiflora Honey
250g Manuka Honey
Pectolase
Water to top up

71B yeast and stepped nutrient additions(fermaid and go ferm blend) first 1/3 fermentation
OG 1.092
Temp 17.5C

Mashed the frozen fruit and added to carboy with pectolase 24hrs before adding everything else.
Fermented dry 1.000. Stabilized and racked across with honey to 1.015. Left to rest for a month or so before racking again. Had to use kwik clear to get the last haze out. Found it to have aged better at this point than my 2nd batch Joes quick grape which I put on at same time.

Im feeling more jealousy for waxer's setup (and apparent skill) than is healthy.

I might have posted this already, if so, apologize for the rerun, but this is the summer...

This is a basic mead - water and honey and yeast - with the addition of a "tea" from Halertauer hops - very noble - and fermented with a traditional Bavarian Hefeweizen yeast. The idea was to create a gluten-free beverage that is based in mead and has overtones of a Bavarian Hefewiezen beer.

Very subtle clove and banana, champagne like carbonation, very enjoyable, going to get this commercialized soon.

"Going to get this commercialized soon."

Can you explain?
