Lemonade Mead

So I was looking to brew a light, summer mead when I chanced by some hard lemonade in the store. I am not a fan of hard lemonade but I got to thinking that a lemonade mead just might be just what I was seeking. Apparently, I am not the first to have this idea; there are quite a few lemonade recipes, mead and otherwise, including my favorite: Skeeter Pee. Someday, I am going to make Skeeter Pee.

Still, I wanted a lemonade mead and that is what I made. Here's the recipe:


  • 6 lbs Clover Honey

  • 2 lbs Cane Sugar

  • 5 12oz Cans of Lemonade Concentrate

  • 1 12oz Can of Pink Lemonade Concentrate

  • 2 tbsp Yeast Nutrient

  • 1 pkt Lavlin D-47

  • Water to 5 gal

  • OG: 1.102
