The Purple People Meader

Rate this Entry
So named by Brother Carlos, the Purple People Meader is going to be a Hibiscus Cranberry Melomel. Probably.
I'm going to wait until secondary to see how much flavor and aroma the Hibiscus flowers imparted. From there I will determine what if anything needs to be added.

Recipe 3 gal:
~8 lbs of honey
2 oz hibiscus
yeast nutrient
2 pkg Red Star Champagne Yeast

    Looks like it is fermenting nicely.

    I'm curious to see the end result. Any progress?

    I think it is in secondary... if I remember right, it tasted pretty strong still and needs more time to mellow out. Hopefully Randy will see this and post his feedback on it.
