If you really want some pumpkin flavor that will help bring it out and balance out the apple flavor.
Sweet potato? How does that work?

Trust me. Or better yet make a pie! Use two exact recipes but for one make the total fruit value the pumpkin and the other 2 part pumpkin 1 part sweet potatoe. The sweet potatoe one will tast more pimpkiny and not be as focused on the spices. The same should translate into mead.

This was my final recipe:
6 qts Apple Juice.
34oz 100% pure pumpkin.
6.5lbs honey
2qts water.
Lalvin 71B 1122
OG 1.099

Didnt do anything special with the pumkin, though the cider i started the next day I roasted it with brown sugar before mixing with the apple.


Heres my question, the mead wil ferment to 12.6(ish) percent.

I want to rack onto some brown sugar for my secondary, yeast goes to about 14% so how much sugar should I add to leave a little yeast to bottle carbonate?
