Notes

Recipe is designed to yield 12 x 750ml bottles = 9L of hopped sparkling light yellow in colour mead.

Guideline: http://meadist.com/making-mead/mead-recipes/hop-head-mead/

Remember 50 raisins and 5 copper coins.

Boil the water with 1/2 honey, add hops.

Add yeast nutrient (4g from Hop and Grain) and aerate for first 5 days.
Primary for 3/4 weeks, rack and crash for 1/2 then bottle with 2 carb drops (total 24) each bottle.
