Make sure it is bubbling and then you will add it to your beer after the beer has cooled.

Add the yeast at the temperature recommended on the packet .

After 24-48 hours it should start bubbling.

Make sure your primary has about a gallon of water in it otherwise fill it now.

Just be careful that your carboy is around a third empty leaving space for frothing and foaming.

Let it ferment. Rack the mead off the fruit to your secondary carboy after 6-7 days when the frothing has slowed down.

Let ferment for 4 more weeks in the secondary then bottle.

After you wait for the second time you will bottle the beer sterilize and then bottle and cap again siphon slowly so that that sediments don’t get mixed in.

Set aside and let age.
