I'm glad everyone seems to be enjoying this recipe. There room for experimenting, as many of the posts show, and I'm sure there's room for improvement as well. The important ingredients are the honey, apple juice, and crystal malt - and even these can be substituted for different varieties, brands, and roast levels.

just bottled my batch today which I noted about a 1.020-2 ish f.g. (if you recall I put all the buckwheat honey in upfront by mistake). Aside from standard green cider tastes it was very promising. I bottled about a case worth and plan to let it sit a long while before I crack one open.

I'm ready to bottle. Can I possibly prime it by naturally allowing it to carbonate? Would the flavor change?

This is a still wine if I am not mistaken. Be careful about bottle bombs unless you have a kegging system or plan to bottle pasteurize.

Gonna be making another batch of this soon. It's absolutely amazing, one of the best meads I've ever had (let alone made myself).

I think that you need to have the buckwheat honey to get the full effect (probably ok subbing regular honey for the other honey additions (clover and orange blosssom)). When I sampled mine at bottling, the buckwheat honey really added a flavor that you won't get with regular honey. Almost molasses like.

I cut my vanilla in half and scraped the seeds into the secondary.

What would you guys recommend for making a 1 gallon batch? just divide everything by 5?

Also since I'm a complete F.U.N. could you explain the steps for doing a yeast starter?

I'm getting ready to do a JAOM for my 1st try at Mead, but this one sounded sooo good...
