How Do You Make Mead last in the Fridge?


    The two different meads, light mead and traditional mead, come with different expiry dates. The reason for this is that the fermentation process is different. Also, lighter meads contain less alcohol, making their expiry date longer.

    Mead bottles that have not been opened are generally not kept in the refrigerator. The mead bottle that has not been opened is best stored in a dark place free of lighting. Most fridges have a light source which makes them unsuitable for mead.

    Bottles of light mead that have been opened should be kept in the refrigerator. This is due to a time limit of one week for mead to be consumed due to the lower alcohol content of alcohol’s rapid oxidation process. Bottles that have been opened of mead from the classic can be kept in the fridge or the pantry. They can be drunk for up to 8 months if stored in the refrigerator.
