So here is how it all started. I purchased a lb of carrot blossom and fireweed honey.
And I started thinking about making a mead. Because that is what honey does to you.
The carrot blossom honey that I purchased has a nice dark powerful floral flavor profile. So im thinking it would make a good body honey for my mead.
So I figured, I did not want a mono-toned mead ( no matter how nice of a tone that is) and decided something creamy would be nice with the carrot blossom...
Enter Meadow-foam.. a magical and mystical honey known best for having a curios marshmallow ish flavor.
So here is the recipie as of now.
18 lbs of carrot blossom honey
18lb meadowfoam honey
4-5 oz of heavy-toast french oak cubes.
Fermaid K for nutrients
Hydrate the yeast in goferm..
Follow a rigorous fermentation schedule
Ferment around 65F if possible.
Add water untill sg hits 1.116 and hope that it will ferment dry.
Any thoughts or opinions
Reason: 36 lbs of honey not 32
