I am relatively new to mead making and wanted to do something special for my Fiancée for the holidays and our wedding next year. We both love mead, and have both shown interest in making mead in the past, so I thought that I would brew a special mead for the occasion based on things that remind me of our relationship (corny I know). What I was thinking was a mead with a lavender undertone as this is one of her favorite flowers. I originally thought that It would be a good idea to use Lavender honey, but I have instead been thinking about using part Meadowfoam honey part some cheaper honey(not sure which to use) and using lavender flowers instead. Then I had thought about using blackberries and strawberries. I had thought about hints of sage, but I am skeptical as to whether or not that would pair well with the other flavors I had thought of. I am going to be using Premier Blanc Champagne yeast. I am not entirely sure about the amounts and I am up for suggestions on what I could use to make this mead something that we can both enjoy on our honeymoon next year!
