Beer Style: Other Fruit Melomel  (25C)
Recipe Type: other
Yield: 5 US gallons

Other Fruit Melomel


This mead recently (March 20) won a first in the mead/cider category of the Brewer's Of South Suburbia (south suburban Chicago) regional homebrew competition. It's a simple recipe that lends itself well to many different melomels. This was a medium mead. If I want a sweeter taste, I use 3 pounds of honey, and a pound of fruit, varying according to the fruit's strength.


  • 2# wildflower honey
  • 12 ozs. frozen mulberries
  • water up to 1 gallon
  • Red Star

Pasturized and skimmed honey at 170F for 1/2 hour. Added frozen mulberries at end of heating. Pitched with rehydrated Red Star Montrachet yeast. Used NO nutriment.

Racked to secondary after 9 days, as berries were beginning to bleach. Bottled when 2 months old.
