Well Ted was wanting my Pineapple Mead Recipe, so here it is.

Pineapple Mead

18 lbs Honey (1 and 1/2 gallons, light color)
6 lbs fresh pineapple (3 pineapples)
1 cup corn sugar
1 pack champagne yeast
5 teaspoon yeast nutrient
1 1/4 teaspoon yeast energizer
1 1/4 teaspoon yeast hulls
3 gallons of water

Before starting boil, mixed yeast, sugar,
yeast nutrient, yeast energizer and
yeast hulls to let it start working.
Boiled honey and Skimmed off foam (I use wild honey so I have to do this). Then
Added the pineapple.
Cooled to 80 degrees Then pitched the yeast, put in bucket and put in an air lock.

Started in Bucket
9/5/2003

First Rack to Carboy
9/26/2003
Topped to 5 gallons in Carboy

Second Rack to Carboy
11/4/2003

Third Rack to Carboy
12/20/2003
Added 4oz Glycerine to help
smooth it out and also
2 1/2 tsp of Potassium
Sorbate to help prevent carbonation
in the bottle. Taste very good,
it has a very dominate
pineapple flavor. Will be a
very good mead.

Date Bottled
December 23, 2003

Total Number of Bottles
54-12oz

15 % alcohol

Tried a bottle on January 3rd, and it was wonderfull. Was like drinking pineapple juice, no bite, no hint of alcohol, but after 1 bottle you could tell it has a kick.

Enjoy

Dave

When I add fruit I don't bother with the O.G., it wouldn't be correct anyway. I would guess somewhere around 1.125 to 1.130. My F.G. was 1.010. I checked the alcohol with a vino-o-meter, which gets you close.

I am very surprised that it tasted that good only being in the bottle a couple of weeks. So surprised that I might have to try a batch! (IMG:style_emoticons/brewboard/omg.gif)

The Key is:
"Added 4oz Glycerine to help smooth it out"
Makes a big differance, IMHO.
Give it a try on your Next batch, won't hurt..

What is another name for glycerine, and where can you get it? Also, I can't find yeast hulls anywhere.

Just made your pinapple mead about a week and a half ago. Can't wait to rack it over to secondary, and sample some. I substituted White Labs sweet Mead yeast though. (IMG:style_emoticons/brewboard/beerchug.gif)
