Notes

4/19/2020-2nd try at mead. Ended at .996, so this is actually 14.96%. I added K-Meta and K-Sorbate at the racking, 5/17/2020. I may back sweeten, but I am planning on carbonating the batch, after aging.

This will be fed using the AIH Traditional Mead Additive Kit. I am using the feeding schedule I have seen on the AHA website-which matches the kit from AIH.

DAY 1: Add honey to 110F water and KMETA (Pack #1). Mix thoroughly, let rest one day.
DAY 2: Temper yeast with Goferm (Pack #2) add to must and pitch. Add 1/2oz. Medium Toast Oak Cubes.
DAY 3: Feed with Pack #3. Degas, 60 stirs.
DAY 4: Degas, 60 stirs.
DAY 5: Feed with Pack #4, Degas with 60 Stirs.
DAY 6: Degas, 60 stirs.
DAY 7: Feed with Pack #5, Degas with 60 Stirs.
DAY 8: Degas, 60 stirs.
DAY 9: Feed with Pack #6, Degas with 60 Stirs.
DAY 10: Degas, 60 stirs.
DAY 11: Degas, 60 stirs.
DAY 12: Degas, 60 stirs.
5/17/2020: Rack and add Packs #7 & 8, K-Meta & K-Sorbate.
Aging with oak cubes.

**The first batch, which was only 1G, never fermented out at all; I use it to add ABV to beers.
