Just bottled my Strawberry mead. I only brewed it on Valentine's Day, but it tastes pretty good now. I can only imagine what it'll be like in a year or three.

I'm going to be making a strawberry melomel and am adding the strawberries in secondary. I didn't add pectin enzyme in the primary because it was just a reg show mead that I was going to split into 2 batches. Can I add some pectin enzyme in right before I add the strawberries? Is there a certain amount of time I should wait after adding the pectin enzyme to rack on top of the strawberries?

Thanks
ErinRae

You can add it to the secondary. It is most effective if added to fruit juice or puree itself prior to adding to the must.

I was thinking fo pureeing my strawberries then racking on top of them in a secondary. How long should I let the strawberries sit in the pectin enzyme before adding the must?
