A very strong beverage, sack is the mead equivalent of a late-harvest icewine or a barley wine. A viscous and intense sipping experience. Includes Wyeast 4184 Sweet Mead Yeast. OG: 1.120-1.123. Time to make: 4 months minimum.

NB Artisanal Mead Kits. Based on Ames Farm's amazing honey, these are simple, uncluttered traditional meads designed to let the honey shine through. Because the floral sources and composition of Ames Farm honey will change with the season and years, and are dependent on variables like hive placement and weather, every batch of these kits will be unique.

Each recipe is available in two sizes - three gallon or five gallon.

2 Weeks in Review by George

2 Week's in and already I see a difference with using Ame's honey. My wife liked it after my first racking, she has not liked any Mead I've ever made. Can't wait until this sits for 6 months to a year. (Posted on 1/11/14)

Great Service/Support but We Must have Made a Mistake Review by OEBFan
Rating
NB offered us great support but we must have made a mistake because the final alcohol content came out to about 7.8%. Like the previous review it was more like honey beer. I must have smacked our first Wyeast packet because it exploded. I don't think that I broke the inner packet on the second one because it never fully expanded. We'll try it again. (Posted on 1/15/12)
Good but not what I expected Review by Crash
Rating
For some strange reason it came out more yellow and with a much higher gravity than I expected. More of a honey beer than the mead I expected. Either way excellent. (Posted on 9/18/11)
BIG HONEY LIQUOR FLAVOR Review by SLOWSPOKES
Rating
This kit is easy to follow and the results were good after 4 months. It should improve as it ages. I would serve it as a dessert wine due to its heavy rich flavor.
I make up gift 6 packs for family and friends for Christmas. I bottle in 6 to 7 oz bottles of mead and 12 oz bottles of beer. The family looks forward to a mix of beer and mead to enjoy. (Posted on 3/10/11)
