SummerSolstice (which was yesterday right?)

Would using Carmel coffee flavoring syrup after secondary/aging work? I know that it has fermentalble sugars, but it also has preservatives.

Yes, it was.

It might work but I'm philosophically opposed to putting any flavorings or extracts in most mead. This mead has such a caramelly flavor that I don't feel its necessary.

Wow this is great. I just brewed this today- I tasted it before the yeasties did and it was delicious. It tasted just like a melted down caramel-apple pop. I can't wait for the yeasties to tone down the sugars and make some alcohol out of it.

Thanks summersolstice!!!

Did you warm the Buckwheat honey before racking on it? Seems the BW honey would be too thick to mix without helping it somehow.

Thanks

I believe I mixed a little mead or perhaps some water with it. I really don't remember.

Ok so I tested this yesterday about 5 and a half months in and all I can say is amazing. Now the caramel flavor comes through great and it is exactly like a caramel apple with absolutely no alcohol bite. This is a dangerous drink for sure.

lol! Welcome to the club! Fortunately I have a very understanding missus. It helps that she usually doesn't know when or how much I spend! Good luck - I'm sure you'll enjoy both. I just received my 2nd place ribbon from the NE State Fair for the year-old cherry mead.
