Product Details

Raspberries are one of the most popular additions to mead, and after tasting the results of this kit it's easy to understand why. Starting with sweet wildflower mead for a base, raspberry puree deepens the color and intensifies the flavor and aroma. The natural acidity of the fruit is the perfect counterpoint to the dessert-wine sweetness of the honey.

get an extra corboy
This is a very smooth, dry, high alcohol drink (wine, kind of) that is much better after a year. I liked it at 6 month, although looking back, it still was a little hot alcohol taste. But at a year, so smooth.
I don't really make beers anymore as I seem to prefer mead, wines and dry ciders. I would recommend making some and then forgetting about it for a year or more. Some reviewers complained that it is too dry. It is dry (and good). If too dry they could back sweeten it.

Awesome Mead Kit!!!
Started this mead last summer and am now starting to try some out of the bottle.....WOW!! I let the mead sit one to two months longer on the raspberry puree in the secondary carboy and the flavor is far more intense than I expected. This is another mead that slips up on you and before you know it you'll be filling all your beer carboys with mead!!

Bone Dry
I was hoping for a sweeter mead, like the description, but it fermented bone dry. It has an excellent raspberry flavor, though. I would love to try it again with a different yeast.

Not what I was expecting
It will be a year in August and there still is a harsh alcohol taste. This is not a sweet mead and is very dry.

Not for Beginners
I was a bit disappointed with this kit. The direction were a bit confusing, and the finished product is not so great. I was excpecting a dessert wine but ended up with a more of a dry wine.

How much purée is included in the 2 cans? Trying to determine how present the fruit will be.
Shane S on Feb 21, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It is the Vintner's harvest puree so each can is 3lbs and 1 oz, so around 6 lbs goes in the recipe so the flavor is definitely present.
