The batch turned out perfect, my 2nd batch ever and it was easy easy! It was a quick fermentation roughly a couple of weeks and it came out stout but not overpowering. Finished a little cloudy but super-clear cleaned that right up. Great Stuff Garrison
"Waiting for more honey"
By: Dennis C | Date: Nov 20, 2012 | Beer(s) Brewed: Mead
I have used your Sweet Mead Yeast in about 3 batches of mead and I have yet to get an inconsistent product or something that I didn't like! I know that I have (unintentionally) changed the recipe and the end result is still the same. There was one batch that I pitched the yeast before the must got to a sufficient temp and that batch turned out low alcohol and very sweet. Still, no complaint and that was my fault. I just wanted to drop you a line and tell you how happy I am with your product. I have two vials of that yeast in my fridge right now just waiting for me to go buy more honey.
" ... this batch is just fantastic!"

I've used this yeast in the past with nice results. However, this batch is just fantastic! I made a 5 gal batch of traditional mead using 14 lbs of honey and a short 15 min boil. Brew day was 8 Feb 09. The OG was 1.110. Jumping several readings later (10 Apr) and the gravity is at 1.024. The mead has a very nice sweet honey flavor...excellent. I'm not complaining, but that's over the anticipated <75% attenuation of the yeast. Thanks. Bill
