Fermentation Through Bottling Your Passionfruit Mead Recipe

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.

Put on airlock, and let it ferment. Rack the mead off the fruit to your secondary carboy after 6-7 days when the frothing has slowed down.

Strain out the pedals using a cheesecloth or colander.

When you use a cheesecloth it helps to wet it first.

Secondary Fermentation
Step 3

Add 1 cup of passion fruit pulp together with half a vanilla seed.

After a month in secondary I added about 3 grams of oak chips.

Let ferment after you add the oak chips an additional 4-5 months in the secondary then bottle.

Sterilize and then bottle and cap again siphon slowly so that that sediments don’t get mixed in.

Set aside and let age.
