I made a melomel 8 days ago with an OG 1.135 and I checked the gravity today and it is 1.003. Wow, I didn't think this would be possible in such a short time. I used SNA and kept fermentation temps around 68. I used Lalvin 71-B (Narbone) yeast and it says on the fact sheet that the alcohol tolerance is 14%. I think this one will definitely need some back sweetening.
