I'm really not having any luck finding a citrus melomel, proven recipe. I have no interest in making JAOM. I don't want any spices, just a strong citrus flavor. I'm sure people are hesitant to go too far with just citrus because of the fear of it being to acidic. I understand that concern but surely someone has figured that out. My initial thought is to use mostly oranges that are nice and ripe as the base and use lemon/lime zest to accentuate the orange flavor. I'm not sure about using juice, I figure using peeled, frozen, fresh fruit would be best. Anyone seen anything like this floating around. Grapefruit zest might be interesting.
