Product Details

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.

Cleanliness pays off
I 'brewed' this in mid January 2017 and had an Sg of 1.126. It's now early September and the Sg is 1.044 and hasn't changed in about 6 weeks. I'm still going to let it sit since I'm no rush to bottle it. I've also decided to bottle it in small 7 ounce bottles cuz it's potent stuff at 10.5% and it's definitely a sipping beverage. I recently discovered that Corona sells their Coronita Extra in HEAVY 7 ounce bottles, so I've been slowly 'collecting' those bottles and eventually, I'll have enough to bottle most of the Mead in those small bottles. I have no signs of mold or infection or anything. So far, so good.

Mead kit was great but it was a total loss
This was my fourth mead kit and the others have always turned out great. But through my error this batch was a total loss. Somehow I didn't get my equipment clean enough and had green mold floating on the top of the beautiful must and had to dump the whole batch. So, lesson learned, even after years of wine and beer making attention to detail still is essential.

2 Weeks in
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.

Great Service/Support but We Must have Made a Mistake
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.

Good but not what I expected
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.

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.

I'm new to the mead making hobby, and was curious if this kit comes with the needed equipment in order to begin making the mead?
A shopper on Mar 28, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes it does you can use your beer starter kit. The only problem is that the mead takes a longer time to make. So you may want to have a extra carboy so you don't tie up your beer production. We liked the final results and ordered it a second time! Enjoy
