White Balloon Pyment

Pyment is a mead that is fermented with either red or white grape juice. Give this easy recipe a go!


2 cans frozen concentrated white grape juice
1 to 1.5 pounds of honey
water to 1 gallon
wine yeast (Pasteur champagne recommended)

Mix the honey and water in a stock pot. Bring to a boil (this kills wild yeast and bacteria). Turn off the stove burner and then add in your frozen concentrates, stirring with a sanitized spoon. Once the mixture is at 80 degrees Fahrenheit or below, add the yeast in. Transfer the mixture (must) to a sanitized fermentation container, and cover the container's top with a ballon that has some pinholes in it.

Bottle when clear, and age to taste!
