- 12-15# honey
- 1 cup juice (orange, lime, pineapple are the ones I use)
- 1 packet yeast(montrechet, if you are patient; epernay if you aren't)
- pinch epsom salt
- 1 qt strong black tea
Simmer the honey with the tea, stir and remove foam. Cool to 90 degrees
syphon to carboy add other ingredients and enough bottled water to fill
to the "shoulder" level. Add your air lock and wait until the air lock
is not doing anything much. (ie: weeks to months)
rack to clean gallon jars with lids. Keep racking as sediment appears.
I like to wait a year before passing judgement, but others are happy
with results after 2-3 months.
