Dark Mead & Cyser

Brewed a dark mead for Samhain. It is 20 pounds of honey, 1 pound of molassas and 2 1/2 gallons of water. I used WhiteLabs WLP099 High Gravity yeast. After it ferments, I’ll be adding some spices. Should be quite the brew. Potential alcohol of over 20%.

I also brewed a cyser. This is a cider with honey. 4 gallons of fresh, organic apple cider from a local apple farm, along with 4 pounds of honey. I used White Labs WLP775, English Cider yeast.
