Thought I'd start a Mead thread for those who would like to share their mead making techniques with the brewing community and also to help me out on my first Mead brew. I've done some research on other forums there seems to be a go to mead recipie called the "BOMM mead". Not sure I got his name right Breas One Month Mead is the accroynym. He lays out steps for you to make a one gallon or 5 batch of clear mead in one Month A couple of guidelines is you need Wyeast 1388 DAP (Diamonium Phosphate) Fermaid K (I think new one is Fermaid O) Adding additions of these above yeast nutrients every third through fermentation shaking to degass at every sugar break e.g. OG =1.090 first addition at .060 second at .030. Here's link to the thread if your interested https://www.homebrewtalk.com/forum/threads/brays-one-month-mead.429241/ I've done most of my browsing on there... Ok so I can get this DAP stuff but not the Fermaid O or K but I do have some Yeast nutrient already which contains Zink Phosphorus- potasium manganese already. Why can't I just use some of this stuff boiled cooled and added to the mead at the third sugar break intervals? Also keen on using either this new hornindal Kviek yeast or Skare yeast on this mead brew. Im Not keen to buy more yeast when I've got more strains than you can poke a stick at sitting in me freezer... Any Mead brewers out there? I'd appreciate your opinion and insite into mead brewing. Already I'm noticing some slight differences in brewing techniques from beer to Mead shaking to degass and Sanitation doesn't seem to be as up front as with beer. Cheers!
