Read Instructions

 

Ingredients:

1 gallon Mineral Water
12 oz Sugar
1 quart Mineral Water
1/2 c Molasses or Honey
1/4 tsp Yeast
2 Lemons
12 oz Brown Sugar 

 

Instructions:

 

Wash the lemons & peel them thinly. Remove the pith. Slice the lemons and place them with the peel and sugar in a sufficiently large vessel. Bring half of the water to the boil and pour it over the lemons, peel, honey or molasses and sugar. Stir and leave to stand covered for a while. Add the rest of the water cold. When the liquid is lukewarm add the yeast. Keep the mead at about room temp until it starts to ferment, about one day. Put a couple of raisins and 1 tsp of sugar into clean bottles, and strain the mead into the bottles. Loosely cork the bottles and store them in a cool place. The mead is ready when the raisins rise to the surface. Serve in flute glasses.
