Just pitched my first ever batch of mead! Bought a bunch of starthistle honey for this purpose almost 2 years ago and just never got around to making it until now.
5 gallon batch
16.25 lbs of Starthistle honey
2 packets of Lalvin EC-1118 yeast
3 tsp of yeast energizer(nutrient booster)
1/4 tsp of Amylase Enzyme
OG was about 1.122
Plan is to stagger a few more additions of nutrient and enzyme once primary fermentation slows down.
I'm hoping it ends up as delicious as the OG sample was!! Wish me luck!
