Mead by Euell Gibbons

Author/Submitted by:
Servings: 1
Categories: Alcoholic Beverages / Brewing / Mead

1  gallon  Water
4  pounds  Honey
6  sticks  Cloves
2  sticks  Cinnamon
1    Lemon, juice & peel
1  teaspoon  Active dry yeast

In a large nonreactive pot, add the next four ingredients to the gallon of water. Boil all together for 30 minutes, then strain into a crock that will hold it with a little room to spare. When cooled, add the yeast, dissolved in some of the liquid. Allow to ferment in a cool place - 55 degrees is ideal - until it ceases bubbling and the liquor clears, then bottle, cap tightly and store in a cool, dark cellar. It should not be used for at least a month, and longer is better. Mead unlike many other drinks, does not improve with really long aging, so it should be consumed within a year of the time it was made. ;+} *** Stalking the Wild Asparagus -- by Euell Gibbons *** * Van Rees Press, New York 1962 *
