U2M - Giniper

Wildflower honey and Juniper berries.


One packet of yeast rehydrated at brew time.

December 4, 2003 - We started with 21 lbs. of honey, heated with water. Added a full Tablespoon of acid blend. Skimmed some scum. Kept at 160F to 170F for about 10 minutes. The resultant must was poured into two carboys, one for Giniper and one for Rosy. Water added, yeast pitched, stirred and stored with a bubblelock.

January 29, 2004 - Put the juniper berries into a carboy and racked the mead onto the berries.

February 12, 2004 - Racked to a clean carboy leaving the juniper berries behind.
