Freyja's Blood Bochet w Raspberry - Anise & Chipotle

Freyja’s Blood Bochet w Raspberry – Anise and Chipotle (MeadDay #03). This is the third Mead I make. It is red like blood. This mead falls under the category of Mead of Poetry. It was boiled, so it is technically a Bochet.

In Norse mythology, strawberries are connected to Freyja, the goddess of love. And also the story about the spirits of children hidden inside strawberries smuggled into the afterlife heaven by Odin’s wife Frigg.

Recipe

  • 1.4 Kg honey
  • 1 liter Brunneby raspberry concentrate
  • 0.9 Kg raspberries
  • 15 gr Anise stars
  • 1 Chipotle (in secondary)

OG 1125
FG 0.997
ABV% 17.5

It turned out quite tart as expected, but I think I will keep it that way. Let’s see what the Chipotle will do.
