Oh cool!

If you can find out what type of yeast is included now that you have instructions, I hope you will consider sharing the process of how it is done. I love mead, but have never seen a fermenting kit for it.

Hunh. Just says "yeast".

Here's a link to the people who made the kit I bought.


Ali, did you have to have any special equipment to make this? My husband is wondering about fermenting buckets and one-way valves that let the gasses out. If we bought a kit would we have to have anything that wouldn't be in our well-stocked kitchen?

My mate makes his own. He uses old big wine carboys/demojohns with one-way valve rubber stop thingymabobs.

I see him on Sunday so I could ask him for his recipe.

Nope, no special equipment required. That's the beauty of this kit. The whole kit consists of a packet of herbs, a little packet of yeast, a small square of muslin and a rubber band, and the directions. All you need to supply is a gallon of spring water, 2 lbs of honey, and a pot to heat stuff in. You use the plastic jug that the spring water comes in for your fermenter. When everything's in the bottle, you put the muslin over the opening and rubber-band it in place.

I used a funnel to get the hot flavoring tea into the spring water bottle, and the funnel with a wire mesh strainer when I poured the finished mead into the bottles. Oh yeah, you also need 4 clean wine bottles or mason jars or something, plus a way to seal the bottles (I just re-used the wine corks).

Big Grin I found that Sensas I posted about a while back, for 5.99 a bottle.

Unfortunately the shop have a minimum buy of six bottles.

Did I really say 'unfortunately' there?????????

I know summer is over when the heavy red wines from Tuscany, Piemont or Bordeaux start to taste again.

Thanks!

I'm more likely to lurk in the beer thread for recommendations if I feel my day would benefit from an alcohol content, but it never hurts to pick up some knowledge.
