Hey Guys and Gals!

Are you looking for an awesome Medlar Mead Recipe? You now have no reason to look any further; you have just found what you have been looking for!


  • 7 Lbs of Medlars, ripe & bletted
  • 3.5 Lbs of Honey.
  • 1/2 Can white Grape concentrate
  • 1 tsp citric acid or juice of one Lemon
  • 2 tsp pectic enzyme
  • Crushed campden tablets
Step 2
  • Lalvin 71B-1122 Yeast
  • Yeast nutrient


Step 1

You need the medlars to be bletted or basically what some would call rotten.

Crush the fruit, bring about about 5 liters of water to a boil and add in fruit.

Add in campden tablet/powder.

Let cool pour into carboy and then add in the pectic enzyme, boney and grape concentrate.

Wait 24 hours.

Step 2
  • yeast
  • nutrient

Prepare a 1L yeast starter by stirring the yeast into the water then let mixture stand in cup for 15 minutes.

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 .

Put in your berries after they have thawed a little.

After 24-48 hours it should start bubbling.

Fermentation Through Bottling Your Medlar 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.

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

Congratulations, You Have Completed Making this Awesome Medlar Mead!

You now need a bottle and a label which are cool enough to compliment your hard work. Honestly, if you put it into a cheap bottle, people will make fun of you. BUT, if it looks good, people will rave about it!
