The Beverage People Mead Nutrient

From a yeasts perspective, honey is very lacking.  The nitrogen content is particularly low.  And lighter honeys, which are generally more popular for meadmaking, are even lower in nitrogen.  Historically it has been accepted that honey wine fermentations will just take longer than other fermentations such as beer and wine.  However, with nutrients added into the pre-fermentation must the fermentation time can be dramatically decreased.  The Beverage People Mead Nutrient contains the nitrogen, minerals and vitamins needed to get your mead fermentation complete, generally within a couple weeks.  The Mead Nutrient contains:

  • Autolyzed Yeast
  • Citric Acid
  • Potassium Phosphate
  • Ammonium Sulfate
  • Magnesium Chloride

Another nutrient your yeast will need but cannot be put in this package is oxygen, so don't forget to aerate!

Good choices of yeast for your mead fermentation can be found here.

How to Use
Add 2 oz. of Mead Yeast Nutrient into 5 gallons of mead must during preparation, late in the boil or just before cooling.
