- I have made several batches of mead, with alcohol levels of 16-20%.
I am about to attempt to do a batch that has an alcohol content of
about a beer. Does anyone have any good period-style recipes for
one? Or where I should start to research to find one? I appreciate
- There are several period mead recipes on
in the mead section.
One that I did that turned out tasty and interesting
is the Boiled Mead recipe from the Dormostro. For a
"half-measure of hops" I think I used about 1oz of
Sazz hops. You can skip the straining part, because
modern honey is already strained. I used champaigne
yeast for this, but with the low amount of honey it
was still a moderate alcohol level, about 6% or so.
Note that you boil the honey BEFORE mixing it with
water. This carmelizes the honey a bit and seems to
help with leaving a bit of residual sweetness.
