hist-brewing: Slow Ferment, what is fast, and nutrients -Reply

Has anyone ever tried using pollen as a nutrient in meads.  The health
food store next door has it.

Owen pointed out in a private email that most of the honey we get is
more processed then in period (pre 1600).  This is probably very true, so
my thinking is adding a bit of pollen would make the honey closer to
period.  Also, people use pollen as a dietary supplement in place of
vitamins, so it sounds like a very good yeast nutrient, unless it has a
constituent that may be unhealthy to the yeast.

Any thoughts.
