Beer Style: Open Category Mead  (26C)
Recipe Type: other
Yield: 5 US gallons

Open Category Mead


This stuff smells incredible---slightly orange, slightly fruity, very much like flowers. The grape juice had not fermented out completely (it's not explosive, yet), but neither was it noticeably sweet. The grape masks whatever young-taste the mead still has in it (not much). After two weeks it was lightly carbonated and a very clear pink.
