Description:

I've been wanting to share a recipe for a batch I'm enjoying now that is fantastic (and leaves your senses reeling). The spices are subtle, so don't be afraid to add more...

Ingredients:

  • 1 Gal Honey (12 lbs)
  • 2 Gal Pure, Unfiltered Apple Cider (pasteurized!)
  • 3 Cinnamon Sticks
  • 5 Cloves
  • 2 Nutmeg "Buttons", grated
  • ~4 Tbs Acid Blend
  • Wyeast Dry Mead Yeast
  • Yeast Energizer

Procedure:

Boil honey in 2 1/2 gallons water for 30 minutes; skim scum as it rises. Add all spices and yeast energizer in final 5 minutes; cover and let steep for 15 minutes. Add must to cider in fermenter. Test for acid and add acid blend as desired. Pitch a big, healthy starter of yeast. Rack in 2 weeks, again in another 4 weeks, again in another 4 weeks. Bottle when crystal clear and prime at your own risk.
