I used a gallon of honey - four gallons of spring waster and about 6 Lbs of fresh crushed Cranberries and let them sit and flavor the mead for ten days. Then a month later I racked to a secondary and added an acid blend. let it sit in the secondary for six months then bottled using 5 ounces of priming sugar and used Grolsch-style swing-cap 32 ounce bottles. I wanted it to be a sparkling mead. I have let it sit in the bottles a little under six months. November 30, 2012 will be exactly a year after I started it. Long wait but excellent mead. Did I say Tasty! I still have ten 32 ounce bottles left. It is excellent well chilled!
I forgot I used a Wyeast 4632 slap pack. It seams to have worked well!
