Chocolate Covered Strawberry Mead

I started a new mead today after bottling. I figured this deserved its own post. This is one of the most unique meads I have even heard of. I am calling it Chocolate Covered Strawberry Mead. The recipe is as follows:

  • 3 Kilos of strawberries 
  • 500grams of cocoa
  • 3 cups of honey
  • Water to make up five gallons
  • 1 pkg of 1118 Lavin Champagne yeast
Boil the strawberries for twenty minutes then put all ingredients except the yeast into your primary fermenter. Once the must has cooled enough pitch the yeast and wait. I will post the initial gravity reading once I obtain it.
