This will be my first meada ttempt and I will prbably start it around Xmas time. Thought I would spend some time doing some research on it to make sure it works out for the best.
I am leaning toward doing this recipe here:
I had a few basic questions though.
My source of honey is probably going to be just wildflower honey. Im getting a pretty good deal on a lady her comes to my work and I dont feel bad giving her the money. Its her hobby and 6$ per 3 lb jugs seem pretty good.
The recipe mentions mixing different sources of honey. How much will that effect the taste if all I have is wildflower?
Also, are cloves and allspice something specific I need to get at a brew store or do they sell the type I can use at a regular store in the spice section?
FInnaly, they mention using 2 packets of yeast. ANy idea why 2?
I will probably be doing a 3 gallon batch and not a 5 gallon batch, so I will adjust all the numbers to match for a 3 gallon.
thanks for the help
