Notes

The 8 oz of sugar is approx contribution from 64 oz cherry juice (ingredients list 29 g, or approx 1 oz, of sugar per 8 oz juice), which is added to 1.5 gallons water to make 2 gal total. After fermentation is complete add cherry purée (sulfite and sorbate first if you want sweet mead, don’t if you want dry mead), also adding pectic enzyme for clarity. Can also backsweeten with more honey also, if wanted.

Use all in 71b dry yeast (not in database), or other mead yeast of your choice.
