Bentonite in Mead Making

Postby sabrewolfe on Mon Sep 20, 2010 8:19 am

Hi all was just doing a bit of researching for ideas for Mead receipes and I came accross a few pages that recomended using bentonite to speed up the clearing process in Mead making. AFAIK its just an inert clay that draws alot of the dead yeast cells and other nasties that taint your mead and leave it cloudy. Im just wondering if anyone on the forum has any experience using bentonite in their homebrewing?

As an aside has anyone tried using saffron as an ingredient in Mead.
