Make Sparkling Mead - The Easy Way

 

There are a million ways to make mead and of course a million different ways to make a sparkling or champagne style mead. Here is the absolute easiest way to do it.

 

Sparkling Mead - or champage mead is just what you think it is. It is a Mead honey wine that has the same wonderful carbonated taste and consistency of a regular champage.

The process for making real easy sparkling mead is almost identical to the normal process for making mead except before you bottle your mead you stir two-thirds of a cup of honey into the batch then bottle it. (this 2/3rds cup is for a typical 5 gallon batch)

I have a tutorial on how to make mead the easy way right here if you need to learn this process Mead making tutorial

It is as simple as that! This extra honey added just before bottling will cause a small amount of further fermentation in the bottles.

But there are some cautions you should be aware of before you do this. This extra fermentation will cause quite a bit of pressure to build up in the bottles so you really need to bottle into champagne bottles because they are significantly stronger and you need to cork with champage corks and wire caps. This is to hold the additional pressure.

Not using champagne bottles and corks can cause an explosion of the bottles because of the significant extra pressure so you really should do this to avoid injury or damage to the immediate area around where you store the bottles.

 

Goblet

I found a whole bunch of wonderful drinking goblets on amazon. I have a page with them right here. Just a couple of years ago you couldn't get a goblet, or mead! It is great to see both are becoming very popular. Mead Goblets
