U2M - Pom4

A pomegranate melomel. Another Unicorn Unchained / Talisman farms collaboration.


Yeast notes. 5 g Lalvin EC-1118. Rehydrated and pitched at brew time.

Brew notes. Weighed honey into the kettle with about 2 gallons of water and heated while stirring. When the honeywater was at 160 F we added the must chiller and maintained that temperature for 20 minutes. Then used the must chiller to cool. The must went into a bucket, followed by the POM juice and more water to make 5 gallons. The must was at about 90F when the yeast was pitched. Stored in the bucket with a lid and bubble lock.

May 15, 2020 - brewed a pomegranate melomel. GR 1.090 taken before the yeast was pitched. This should finish strong and dry. Already blurping away on 5/16.

August 2, 2020 - racked to carboy. GR 0.993

August 30, 2020 - racked to keg to carbonate. GR 0.993, almost 13% abv. We want a fizzy finish.

September 24, 2020 - bottled.
