Mead MakersWyeast Laboratories, Inc. produces a variety of Pure Liquid YeastTM cultures for production of sweet and dry mead, metheglin, braggot, cyser, melamel, and pyment. The strains recommended for use in fermentation of all varieties of mead are typically wine yeast strains, however, some ale strains are also appropriate. Since honey, even more so than grape must, is deficient in nutrients essential to proper yeast cell growth and metabolism, additional Wyeast Vintner’s Choice Nutrient Blend is recommended.
