Two Melomel meads (Pear and Pomegranate)

A friend and myself spent a few hours today making a couple of melomel meads. (Melomel is just the technical name for a mead that you make with fruit added. One batch we made is with Pears and the other batch is with Pomegranate. They both look terrific and I bet they are going to turn out fantastic. I have been wanting to do a pear mead for a long time now and finally got to do it. And I think that pomegranate is going to make a stunningly crisp mead with a hint of tartness.

One really important thing about these two meads is that we used the honey from our own hives so this is rather special! (I do have videos and pictures of our hives here, including a pic of one of the queen bees which is pretty cool)

It was a lot of work to separate all the seeds out of the pomegranate but I had my friend do it nyuk nyuk :)

No real recipes here for you but I just really wanted to say that it was a lot of fun. Mead making is just a very rewarding thing. And tomorrow when the airlocks start bubbling it gives you just an amazing feeling of reward!

My latest ebooklet: How to Make a Fruit Mead (melomel). Making Honey wine with the addition of fruits is the pinnacle of spectacular mead. You can use cherries, pears, pomegranate, apples, peaches, blackberries, blueberries and just about anything else. In this 21 page ebooklet I take you through the whole process and show you how to do it by doing it myself. Lots of pictures and full explanations of what you do and everything you need. If you always wanted to make a fruit mead this is the booklet for you: How to make a Fruit Mead Melomel

 

If you have never made mead and would like to give it a try very inexpensively this is a terrific setup. Very inexpensive and Prime shipping too. You get a gallon glass carboy an airlock and the rubber stopper. I love this setup. Fermenter including Rubber stopper and Airlock

You can have a batch of mead going the day this arrives.
