Batch size: 5 gallons
Boil honey and 5 quarts water for 10 minutes, skimming off foam. Place petals, citric acid, and tannin in a brewing bucket and pour in the hot honey mixture. Add water to make 5.5 gallons. When the must is at room temperature, add nutrient, sprinkle the yeast on top of the must (without mixin), and fit the fermentation lock. After 7-10 days, strain out flowers and transfer the must into a carboy. Re-fit the lock and ferment until clear. Rack as necessary, bottle and age.
