As a matter of fact, Yes, I have. Batch #19. From my notes, the only thing I did differently was use 9 lbs of clover and 1 lb of buckwheat and put in 3 oz of Watkins double strength Vanilla when it was finished. Otherwise, I followed same instructions except I used 2 cloves per gallon instead of my one in previous tries. It was done in exactly 6 weeks from start to clear without racking. The yeast likes warmer temperatures. I did it in a kitchen cabinet where it was 74 degrees. Smells wonderful while making. Got 12 large and 2 half bottles of clear mead. Waiting for Christmas to break open.David Baldwin said:Joe,
Have you ever done this in a 3 gallon batch? I'm wondering if trippling the recipe will work as well as it does in the 1 gallon batch.
I've already got 3 gallon carboys begging for use, and I"d have to come up with a 1 galllon jug if I do it by the original recipe.(snip)
