Made up another batch of plain old mead, just a simple recipe that I’m hoping turns into a regularly reproducible mead like my 5 o’Clock mead and Chai mead. Also, proving how easy it is to make mead! Recipe:

  • 1gallon+1qt honey (approx. 12 lbs)
  • water up to 5 gallons
  • 1 tsp irish moss
  • 1 packet Wyeast 4632 yeast (“dry mead”)

Mole mead

Leave a comment

So on the suggestion of and with the help of a friend, I started today a batch of mole mead. I think it will taste…as good as it sounds, although when we put all the cocoa stuff in the bucket with the honey, the color of the cocoa really took over. We’ll see how it develops over time. Stuck with the sweet mead yeast this time to counteract the bitterness of the cocoa and spiciness of the chilies.

Recipe:

  • 7 dried Arbol chili peppers
  • 12 oz baking cocoa
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 12 lbs wildflower honey
  • 1 tsp Irish moss
  • Wyeast 4184 sweet mead
