Hash Mead

Recommended Posts

Hey folks! It's been a while. Hope everyone is doing well.

 

I thought I'd share my Hash Mead adventure.

 

Some of you may or may not know that I am a professional beekeeper. I don't engage in commercial beekeeping, use nasty chemicals or treat the bees harshly. Anyhoo...I've been experimenting with different meads and one day it hit me - WEED MEAD!!!

 

This is for 1 gallon. Adjust as needed:

 

1. Find a local beekeeper and buy 3 lbs of honey from him/her. Don't buy the crap in the stores...it's garbage.

 

2. Put honey in a pot and heat to about 180 - 190 degrees F.

 

3. Add 8 - 12 grams of hash.

 

4. Let go for 4 - 8 hours. Stirring occasionally and making sure it doesn't burn.

 

5. Once it's done let it cool.

 

6. Bring a little under 1 gallon of water to about 80 - 95 degrees.

 

7. Add hash infused honey and mix until dissolved. This is your "must".

 

8. Prep your yeast and then pitch it in the must (water/hash/honey mixture).

 

9. Stir.

 

10. Pour in a gallon jug and add your lock.

 

11. Set aside and watch it work it's magic.

 

12. After the primary fermentation rack the gallon jug and let sit for 4 - 6 months.

 

13. Drink and enjoy.

 

 

It tastes amazing. It's surprisingly good. You can also substitute bud for the hash if you want but you'll end up with a slightly greener taste. The hash gives it an amazing terpene spice taste that is outstanding.

 

This is a super basic recipe so feel free to modify it as you see fit.

 

Cheers!

 

PS - You can also just make the hash infused honey part which is equally amazing on it's own. I put mine in tea.

Two things I love in this world, Hashish and Mead, now a combo! Million thanks for the recipe!

 

No need for yeast or bacteria control, just follow your recipe, right? Could I use a bucket for beer making with a co2 lock and all?

Yes, you should make sure everything is sanitized.

 

I don't bother with Camden tabs. I give everything a good solid wash w/ hot water and bleach solution. Just a couple small drops is all you need.

 

A bucket w/ C02 lock works just fine.
