hey guys been brewin beer for bout 2 years now. done a few experiments with beers: adding 1 to 3 pounds of honey in some IPAs/porters and really really like the effect honey has on beer. ive tried a few different meads (i am currently limited to what is on hand at BEVMO
) and just love them all.
so i got an empty 5gal carboy, 8 pounds of honey and a couple months to spare. i have in mind a peach mead, but need a few questions answered first.....
-is 8 pounds enough? recipes i have read call for up to 15 lbs....
-is "re-racking" a mead a good idea? i envisioned a 2 week primary, then re-rack and add peaches
-yeast: any specific strain to aid in the sweet/peachy flavor?
this is all i can think of at the moment. im sure when i wake up tomorrow ill have a laundry list of questions
