So I’ve been considering a couple different ideas for JAOM; chocolate orange spice mead and blueberry chocolate mead.
-3.5 pounds wildflower honey
-1 pound organic blueberries (frozen then crushed in cheesecloth)
-1 oz cocoa nibs (present for secondary)
-3.5 pounds clover...
I’ve made Joe’s Ancient Orange Mead recipe several times and I’m a huge fan of how simple it is. I’ve dressed it up just a bit (prestarting the yeast and using yeast nutrient in place of the raisins) but after three gallons of orange spice over the last six months I gotta say I’m a little sick...
Could there truly be an "Angel's Share" with mead like the aging of bourbon? Probably not, but I hope you can help me figure this out.
I started a JAOM recipe two days ago. Here are my ingredients.
- 2lbs. Goldenrod Honey
- .75lbs. Wildflower Honey
- 1 Orange, cut into 1/8th, with rind on...
So I'm putting together half gallon JAOM kits for the four guys in my family. I could do full gallon, but most are only moderately interested, and I think the growler makes for a cool presentation.
Anyone see any issues? There's no carbonation so the force shouldn't be enough to explode it...
