Juniper Elderflower Tasting!

Methoglin
Hi everyone! This mead was a fun adventure, it was also the first I uploaded to my channel! (Well, the “traditional” mead part) Anyway, below are the other videos in the series, or there is a playlist on the main page. I also listed my recipe and steps I made!

For the traditional I referenced a CS Brews video, their recipe involves adding orange peel and juice (we have since learned that adding juice in secondary is preferable), as well as making a tea with a black tea bag. I used about 3lb Star Thistle honey by Sleeping Bear Farms (though I hadn’t bought enough to back sweeten with), and D-47.

After back sweetening, about 4.5 oz Juniper berries and 1oz Elderflowers were added (When fermentation had completely stopped) and I added the lemon zest and juice.

SG 1.110 (not enough honey tbh)
FG 1.010
