I`m gonna give this mead stuff another shot after the agave disaster. So far I got.
18 lbs of strawberries
15 lbs of cosco honey
2 packs of ec 1118 yeast
I mixed 10 lbs of honey into 3 gals of filtered water, stirred the heck out of it with a paint stirrer, hydrated my yeast with a weak must, added a teaspoon of yeast energizer, and pitched. The og was 1.100
After the og goes down I will add the other 5 lbs of honey and 1/2 the berries.
Then put the rest of the berries in after a few weeks.
As always open to suggestions.
