Valkyrie's Choice is just about the easiest craft mead to brew.
Essentially, you're simply mixing honey, water, and yeast in the right proportions.
Valkyrie’s Choice Clone Recipe
OG = 1.062
FG = .998
ABV = 8.5% abv.
- 9 lbs Raw Wildflower Honey
- 4.5 Gallons Water
- 1 oz. Wyeast Wine Yeast Nutrient
- 5 Campden Tablets (if desired)
- 5 packets Lalvin D-47 yeast
Step by Step
Combine the first four ingredients at 104°F (40°C) stirring vigorously to aerate.
Wait 24 hours for the sulfites to do their thing, then sprinkle the dry yeast over the top of the must.
Maintain the fermentation at about 86°F (30°C).
Bottle (with priming sugar) or keg when bubbling has completely stopped (should be 8-10 days).
Enjoy in a week or two!
