3 gal Pineapple Juice
3 Cups Black Tea
10 lbs Wildflower Honey
1 packet Champagne Yeast

This all-natural recipe yields great results. Add tea to about a quart of water and boil for 20 min. Remove from heat and add honey, stir in well. . skimming off any scum if it rises. Cool to blood temp. In meantime, prepare yeast starter. Add pineapple juice to 5 gal. carboy, then pour in cooled must. Top with water. Pitch yeast. Use a blow-off tube initially as primary fermentation may be vigorous. Rack to secondary in 10-14 days. Rack every 30 days until clear. Bottle. Age forever - starts off pretty green.

The original gravity may change based on the brand of juice you use. This will be a dry mead but you can stabilize and back sweeten.
Lost Knight Cellers

In the Carboy:
Red wine
Roman Raisin Wine
Bottle aging/drinking:
Apple Wine (15% abv)
Strawberry Wine
Elder Flower Wine
Blue moon Clone

I have a similar recipe that I've used for a few batches.
3 gallons total. 1.5 gallons pineapple juice. 7 lbs wildflower honey. 2 cups of coconut flakes in the primary. 71B yeast. Ferments completely dry to about 14%. Backsweeten a little with cane sugar. It's outstanding on a hot summer day.
