DetailsMead was probably the first alcoholic beverage known on this planet. Known as the drink of the gods, Sweet meads have a sweeter body and finish. Sparkling sweet mead is a nice alternative to Spumante Mead, is easy to brew and definitely worth the 4 to 12 month wait. Your patience is rewarded with a beverage ranging from 10-15% in alcohol content. Two stage fermentation required. Our ingredients for this recipe include 12 pounds of Clover Honey, priming sugar, Yeast nutrient, and yeast. Makes 5 gallons of mead.

2.0 / 5.01 ReviewNot really a sweet Mead...Was rather disappointed. This was billed as a "sweet Mead" kit, but it ended up being "semi-sweet". It's not really dry, but not sweet either. My wife likes it (since she's a fan of anything dry), but it's certainly not what I was expecting (I wanted something like Chaucer's). It's good for mulling though (if you add honey to it along with the mulling spices).November 15, 2016
