Perhaps you've known about mead previously or possibly you haven't, however one picture that consistently appears to strike a chord when mead is referenced is Vikings drinking their grog. I don't have the foggiest idea about a mess about Vikings, yet I do know somewhat about mead! Mead is an aged nectar and water blend, some call it nectar wine, and it is potentially the first matured beverage that people deliberately made. Fortunately for us, it's very simple to make! I'm demonstrating how to make a gallon of mead with this basic blueberry orange mead formula to be precise.

Need to get familiar with making mead? I have a Simple Mead Making for Beginners eBook only for you! It has fixing and hardware agendas, definite directions for preparing and packaging your mead, and straightforward mead formula thoughts! Make certain to look at that in case you're new to the mead making process.

I should make reference to right now that at whatever point you add natural product to a mead it's actually called a melomel. You could likewise utilize apple juice rather than water and afterward you'd have what's known as a cyser. This is a formula for one gallon of mead, yet I'm generally of the psyche that in case you're causing one you to should make two. This is particularly valid in the event that you as of now have two glass containers from my hard juice formula, as it's truly no harder.

  • Sanitizer
  • Large Pot
  • Long Handled Spoon
  • Large Funnel
  • One Gallon Glass Jug
  • Thermometer
  • Airlock with Rubber Stopper
  • Auto Siphon with Tubing
  • Bottling Wand
  • Flip Top Bottles


  • water non-chlorinated or filtered
  • 2-3 pounds honey depending on how sweet you want to end product to be.  Trader Joe's usually has a good price on a 3 pound can of mesquite honey that works well.
  • berries or fruit of any kind fresh or frozen, about a cup
  • 1 orange
  • 10 raisins
  • 1/2 package champagne yeast


  1. Sanitize everything that will be used in the brewing process.
  2. Heat about 1/2 gallon of non chlorinated water in the pot on medium heat. Once it's warm, but not boiling, add the honey and stir it so it all dissolves. Turn off the heat.
  3. Put the berries or other fruit, orange slices (skin and all), and raisins into the one gallon jug.
  4. Use the funnel and carefully pour the honey water mixture into the jug.
  5. Top off the jug with cold (preferably filtered) water, leaving at least 2 inches of head space on top. Put the lid on the jug and gently mix everything around a bit.
  6. Make sure that the temperature of the must is below 90°F, then add 1/2 packet of champagne yeast. Put the lid back on tightly and this time shake the jug for a minute or two to distribute the yeast.
  7. Put a little water in the airlock to the line, then put the rubber stopper end into the jug. Put the jug in a dark place. It should start bubbling within 12-24 hours.
  8. After about 6 weeks of fermenting, the mead can be bottled and aged.
