Backsweeten Mead

Does anyone know how much honey I would need to backsweeten mead that finished too high with 5.5 gallons. I only need 6 points.


Honey sg can vary so the only way to know for sure is to add, mix, and test. But it would probably take about a pound of honey to raise 6 points.

In more detail, honey averages around 35 points per gallon per pound. Since you have 5.5 gallons you divide the two numbers (35 / 5.5) to get 6.3 sg points per pound of honey.
