Mead Yeast

Post by simo7007 » Thu Sep 16, 2021 9:07 am

I'm doing a batch of honey mead, about 3 gallons (20 pints). How much mead yeast should I use?

In a normal 40 pint beer brew I use 7g yeast. The mead yest comes in 28g sachet (BULLDOG Mead Yeast + Nutrient - Honey Wine 28g | Honey Yeast | Wine Yeast | Active Yeast | Cider Yeast | Home Brew)

Depends on the starting gravity.

Ok. Please tell me more. I didn't know that, is there a formula?
