started again with this recipe 2 weeks ago when the temp was a bit normal in my apartment.
2 kg strawberries
1.8 kg honey
1 madame jeanet
1 tsp citric acid
1 tsp yeast nutrient
1 tsp pectine
Cleaned and cut up the strawberries and put them in a big pot
added a cup of water and slowly warmed and mashed all the strawberries
then cut up half the chilies (with rubber gloves) and added them to my strawberry mash
added the honey to the strawberry mash stirred all the honey in the strawberries and then it was time to put it in the dj. The mash was a bit thick so had to use a chopstick to get it all trough.
put in the yeast, citric acid, yeast nutrient and mead yeast into the bottle. I did not have any pectine at home so have put an order in for that, i dont have a brewshop nearby so had to order this online. Kept a lot of headspace before I have my pectine. There is still a lot of fruit in there that will try and leave the bottle somehow.
Here the bottle is in a big pot in case of a strawberry vulcano
this is after three days
