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.

4.0 / 5.03 ReviewsHave to use the right yeastWanted to comment on Thomas's review. If you use Wyeast 4184 Sweet Mead yeast, the 12 pounds of honey in this kit is the perfect amount for a sweet mead. You can't use the White Labs sweet mead yeast or any of the dry wine yeasts because they will ferment dry or off-dry.May 5, 2017Not 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
