Notes

Lalvin EC-1118 Champagne Yeast
1 Gallon Apple Cider - 16 (24g Sugar each) Servings
1 campden tablet
1/2 tsp yeast nutrient
1/4 tsp acid blend
1/4 tsp pectic enzyme

If fermentation begins to smell "sulfur-ish" add extra yeast nutrient to carboy.

After 3 weeks in primary activity can still be seen upon close inspection, but it has slowed considerable. Mead is noticeably clearing. Racked to secondary, added 4+ ounces of tart WI cherry juice, 1 chopped green apple, 1 chopped red apple, and 1/2 ounce whiskey. (also added 1/2 tsp yeast nutrient) Secondary for 1-2 months (when mead has cleared it's good for bottling). Bottle conditioned 3.5 volumes

Exp. 2
Used frozen door county apple juice and Orange Blossom Honey. Will be adding 1 lb of frozen tart cherries to secondary in addition to apples. Different yeast used this time; red star "pasteur blanc".
