Brewed: April 22, 2004 Bottled: October 13, 2005 Wildflower honey and Agave nectar.
Yeast rehydrated at brew time.
April 22, 2004 - Agave at Last was in the planning stages for some time before we got around to buying some agave nectar, and longer after that before it was actually brewed. Two 5 gallon batches of mead were brewed with wildflower honey and agave nectar.
First we heated the honey with some water. The agave nectar was added after the honey water was hot. The must was kept at 170F for about 10 minutes. Then it was cooled and poured into two carboys. More water was poured into each carboy, and each got its own rehydrated yeast package. Both carboys were topped off with water and then stirred and stored with a bubble lock.
September 23, 2004 - Racked.
October 13, 2005 - Bottled. Very tasty.
