First mead I have made in a while. Going to mix this up later tonight. Thoughts?
11# Gentle Breeze Apiary Clover Honey
4# Hansen's Honey Farm Wildflower Honey
10# Organic Blueberries from Bayfield, Wi. (in a fruit bag)
.5 gal. Knudsen's Just Black Currant
.25 gal. Knudsen's Just Black Cherry
2 gal. Bottled Spring Water
2 oz. Med. toast French Oak
15g. Lalvin RC212 yeast rehydrated w/ GoFerm.
OG 1.140 before blueberry addition.
SNA and O2 after lag and 1/3 sugar break
Aerate and punch cap 2-3x daily until 1/3 sugar break
When you guys aerate do you just stir to degas and add O2 or do any of you use pure O2 at these times. Thoughts about doing that?
