I’m not sure if this question belongs in wine, cider, or mead, but anyway… Here’s a list of ingredients…
Black Currants (dried like raisins)
Tart cherry extract
Med. toast oak cubes
(All the above is all natural, no preservatives, etc. of course) These are a bunch of ingredients I have left from various things (they’re all plenty fresh though) and I was wondering if you think I could combine these into a wine/cyser/melomel mead? I know the hops is probably the strangest, but I’ve seen mead recipes with hops and I listed them here simply because I wanted to list all I had. If I were to use them I may just make a tea out of them and then steep the currants to extract their flavors but then again if that sounds too ridiculous I may forego the hops altogether. So, do you think hopped currant-cherry-apple-mead/wine aged with oak is just too much going on? Just trying to make the most out of what I have! :lol:
Any thoughts are appreciated. Thanks!
