Review Comments: So this was my first mead and I babied it like crazy and did everything by the book. Dave was quick to answer my couple of dumb questions I had along the way. Great support. I do recommend ordering a second packet of yeast if you want to hit your FG. I plugged this kit into Beersmith and it confirms this. Just my two cents. I did pitch 2 packets of yeast. OG was 1.129 on 3/16/2019 FG finished at 1.016 on 5/7/2019 ABV finished around 14.8% Bottled on 5/10/2019 and tried the first glass over Labor Day weekend on 9/1/2019. Had hurricane Dorian off the coast so thought it was a good time to try. :-) This mead is sweet and VERY strong. My first sip I drank too fast and it was like doing a shot of whiskey. The second I allowed to coat my palette and tongue and there was an amazing after taste. Was absolutely delicious! A great experience if you drink grape wine and have never had honey wine. 24 more bottles to go, I look forward to seeing how much better they get over time as they are already wonderful. I am very happy to have ordered my kit from here and the result. I highly recommend this kit if you enjoy a sweeter wine.
