low gravity sparkling mead

Post by beerKT » Wed Jun 10, 2015 11:26 am

I want to do a low gravity sparkling mead that I can put on tap next to my beer. Part of the reason for this is that I want something decent on tap for guests who don’t like beer. I’m going low gravity so they can have a couple without worry of overindulging. I’ve made a lot of higher OG meads but never anything like this.
My main question is about fermentation. What’s my best bet for yeast? I only want to ferment to about 5% abv. I’ve heard of people using ale yeast for meads like this. Is that a good option. FYI, I do plan to do some fruit in this.

I don't think there are many mead makers on this board, I could be wrong. You might want to try asking your question over at the AHA forum. :o
