Apricot Peach Melomel Mead Kit

Item currently out of stock

Melomel is a mead fermented or flavored with fruit.

This Melomel features 15 lbs of honey, 3 lbs of Apricot puree and 3 lbs of Peach Puree to produce a golden hued fruit infused concoction that will have your friends inviting you back for more.

While developing this kit we used our BA-11 dry yeast strain as it is known in white wine making to bring out Apricot and Peach aroma's. Other yeasts that would work well with this kit can be found below.

Dry Yeast Recommendation:

BA11: Apricot and peach esters with good mouthfeel
DV10: Strong and clean, stays true to original honey's flavours and aromas.
71B-1122: Softens high acidity (metabolizes up to 30% malic acid), strong ester / fruit profile

Includes our simple, step-by-step two page instructions, which will teach you the basics of making mead. 

This kit does not include yeast. Please see our recommendations above.

If I wanted to break this down and do it as 1 gallon at a time is that feasable?
Dan Teague on Aug 9, 2020
BEST ANSWER: It is possible to do this. The main problem will be maintaining the sanitized nature of the fruit cans during storage. The honey is easy enough to measure and store, but the fruit would have to be transferred to another sanitized and sealable vessel.
How many bottles of mead does this make?
Douglas Goodrich on Aug 29, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hello Douglas - This should make approximately 5 gallons, or 48 12 oz bottles.

Amazing Mead !!!
This was my second batch of mead I've made and it was absolutely great! I made it for our wedding as an alternative for a champagne toast and everyone went crazy for it(and got buzzed quick). I used the BA11 yeast and overall it took about 8 months to really clear and for all the flavors to blend nicely. I also used the no sulfur method for an all natural flavor profile and it worked great no infection problems! Highly recommend this mead kit! Very easy too
