Session Mead

This session mead recipe is ALL about the honey. A good-tasting honey is critical to this mead’s success. At a low ABV riding just above 5%, this crisp, refreshing hydromel mead is perfect for summer sipping. Great either bottle condition or on draft. Why not home brew one right now? It can be ready in under a month if kegged. In this video we show you how to make mead, but unlike a traditional mead this is a light and crushable drink more akin to a honey-flavored lager or hard seltzer than a big, sturdy traditional mead. We’ve brewed this recipe dozens of times, and it is a trusted winner!
