My peach Melomel is finally done and bottled up. We didnt use any clearing chemical in it-- it looks pretty clear anyways!!
Wont be able to drink it for a bit -- might open one at Christmas.
The other bottles will have to wait until summer becauswe I want to see if it tastes better after its aged for a bit.

I don't think I've ever heard of Melomel.  Huh Can you tell us more? Peachy anything sounds really tasty, though!

Peach melomel -- is peach juice mixed with honey and yeast added to make a wine. The honey just raises the Alcohol levels and makes it sweeter.
Its good!! Smiley

We have been making our own mead for a couple years now -- We keep our own bees for that purpose!!

We are making 2 carboys of honey mead.......chokecherry/grape, raspberry and rhurbarb with honey added too instead of sugars. In a week or 2 we are going to make apple cider.

Honey Mead


This is one of the better sites for LOTS of recipes

We hope to start a meadery in about 5 years and make our wines for retail.
