So…I MADE MEAD TODAY. In a bucket, because I’m the epitome of class, and because I can’t seem to find 1 gallon carboys or 5L demijohns anywhere.
Have some pictures of my ingredients!
Weighing my mead in the only way I can. Spoon meet bucket. Spoon meet scale.
My must (a must is the honey water mixture). This is 4 lbs of honey, 5L of water, an organic orange, 1 cinnamon stick, 2 cloves, and 25 raisins
I pretended I was Elvis and shook up my mead to aerate it (“I was all shook up” …if you didn’t get it) This is before I’ve pitched my yeast, which I’m still waiting to do. Just gotta get to the right temperature!
I can’t wait to drink this. I really can’t.
