NB Artisanal Standard Dry Mead Making Kit
Fermented to completion, dry mead is delicate and more subtle than medium or sack mead. Becomes champagne-like if you carbonate it. Excellent as an aperitif. Kit includes Wyeast 4021 Champagne Yeast. OG: 1.080-1.083. Time to make: 3 months minimum.
NB Artisanal Mead Kits. Based on Ames Farm 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 mead making kit is available in two sizes - three gallon or five gallon.
Cant wait to bottle it! It has one more month to condition (2 months total), I added frozen blackberries I picked the year before. I then added isenglass once I racked it, and it is so clear now! Beautiful red/purple color. Isenglass highly recommended!!
I love this kit. Is is so easy to start and takes all the uncertainty out of starting in the passion of making Mead. A great hobby.
still bubbling, but kit was super easy. ive used it before and liked the mead
I like mead. This one is still in primary. I hope that I did it right. I got the honey and yeast, but I didnâ??t get the recipe or anything else that might have belonged with it.
For the price of decent honey this kit is a good deal. I had good success with my kit and am ordering another. I altered my recipe a bit and added 5lbs of fresh raspberries to my secondary (blended and simmered to kill bacteria). I let it naturally clarify which takes a bit longer but next time I will use bentonite to help speed it up a bit (couldnt wait to drink it was good). I don't like sweet mead and kept with it dry by only adding 1 lb of berries per gallon, some meads add multiple lbs. If you want to try making mead I would recommend this kit.
