Apple Pie Mead 

Classification: mead, cyser 
Source:, r.c.b., 5/21/95 

I've been wanting to share a recipe for a batch I'm enjoying now that is fantastic (and leaves your senses reeling). The spices are subtle, so don't be afraid to add more... 
Ingredients: (for 5 gallons)
1 Gal Honey (12 lbs) 
2 Gal Pure, Unfiltered Apple Cider (pasteurized!) 
3 Cinnamon Sticks 
5 Cloves 
2 Nutmeg "Buttons", grated 
~4 Tbs Acid Blend 
Wyeast Dry Mead Yeast 
Yeast Energizer 
Boil honey in 2 1/2 gallons water for 30 minutes; skim scum as it rises. Add all spices and yeast energizer in final 5 minutes; cover and let steep for 15 minutes. Add must to cider in fermenter. Test for acid and add acid blend as desired. Pitch a big, healthy starter of yeast. Rack in 2 weeks, again in another 4 weeks, again in another 4 weeks. Bottle when crystal clear and prime at your own risk.
