I 've been playing around with various attempts at making a lower gravity mead that I can easily drink a full pint of without feeling like I just drank a full pint of mead. I took this and a couple other variations of the concept out to my clubs mead day this past weekend and this one got the best feedback. I used the no heat method and did 2 nutrient additions (pre-ferment and after 1/3 of the sugars were fermented).10 lbs trader joe's mesquite honey2 packs Nottingham yeast rehydrated in waterOG - 1.070FG - 1.009brewed in March and very nice after 5 months This also made a really nice cocktail when mixed with a friend's raspberry rhuhbarb wine

I tried it as a fullout sparkling, but for my tastes it's best when slightly petillant and yes it is tasty
