Kurts Apple Pie

So I remember an episode where mike was kind enough to share the recipe for this mead. Does anyone have the episode number or the recipe? Thanks

15# of honey roughly comes out to 1.5 gallons. The numbers I gave were for a 5 gallon batch, so you should be able to scale down from there.

Let it age for 6 months. It needs time to mellow out.

Moonlight mead man (Michael?) shared the recipe on the mead episode of Brewing with Style and then gave some further process details in a Brew Strong episode which either focussed on the meadery or general mead Q&A.

Have a listen to both and put the pieces together. I've got a small batch aging in the fridge now which I'm hoping will be good for Sth hemisphere winter! Having not made a cider before or had much success with mead it doesn't seem as sweet as other moonlight mead I've tried - but a bit of age won't hurt it - the real stuff get some aging time too according to interviews.

Cheers
