I am back at making session mead again. The plan is to have one 26 gallon batch of mead and split it into 4 six gallon sub batches. ABV will be kept low to encourage a faster turn around and also to deliver a fresh and refreshing taste. The last batch I tried to make I ended up using too much fermaidO in it since I did not account for the YAN efficiency multiplier associated with using fermaidO. So lets see if take two ends up any better. So here is the general plan for the mother mead. She will have four children. ABV = 5.5% SG = 1.042 Volume = 99 Liters Yeast Choice = Lalvin 71B-1122 Fermentation Temperature = 60F Yeast Pitch = 25 grams Go Ferm Protect Mass = 31 grams Must Volume = 99 Liters YAN Requirement = 87 mg/L GoFerm Contribution = 30 grams => 9 mg/L Upfront FermaidK Contribution = 25 grams => 25 mg/L At end of lag phase FermaidO Contribution = 43 grams =>53 mg/L Assuming its YAN is 3X as good as DAP YAN. Half up front half at 1/3 sugar break Honey Required = 32lbs or 2.65 gallons. Lets talk about the kids.
