Question about stabilizing my Mead
« on: February 21, 2018, 03:49:33 PM »
I went to my local brew shop today to get something to stabilize my Mead so I can back sweeten it a little, it's a little dryer then I would like. I'm new at wines and meads only my 2nd mead but she gave me pectin enzyme. Said that will stabilize it so I can back sweeten and will keep in from refermenting. Is this true??

hmm, i thought it was for breaking down pectin in fruits when making wine.
I never heard anyone use it for stabilizing wine or mead.
Ive only heard of people using Potassium Sorbet or pasteurizing. I have tried both with luck on the PS.
when i tried Pasteurizing i popped corks out and ended up with a nice sparkling cider  :)
i would do a little more research on pectin enzyme as a stabilizer. you may have gotten some bad info

I’d prefer to use Potassium Sorbate, mate.

Yup, as long as you killed off that yeast that sounds like a nice back sweetening combo. Just remember to taste your way into the amount to use.
