Making Mead, Week 9 Bottling


Thanks for walking this path with me. It’s bottling time for the mead. Last weekend, July 3, with the help of my homebrewing cohort Jim Compson, we primed and bottled 3 gallons of the honey concoction into 22 once beer bottles. We used 3/4 cup of honey to prime it. Hopefully there will be enough yeast left in the mead to carbonate it. Now it’s time for patience. It should be ready for tasting around New Years. Yeah, I know, but Rome wasn’t built in a day.

I sulphited the remaining 3 gallons for bottling into wine bottles at a later date.

Oh, and if you live in Middle Tennessee, save your 750mL wine bottles for me. I’ll be happy to come collect them.
