A Clarre is another form of a Pyment – a special form own a melomel, only this is made with grapes rather than other fruits. By definition, red or green grapes may be used. In its basic form, this is how a clarre is made, with only the residual sugar from both grapes and honey to balance any sweetness levels.
As with any mead, the final strength can vary, be it hydromel, regular mead, or Sack Mead.
It has been argued that using grape juice instead of disqualifies the finished brew from being a Clarre, and allowing the mead only to be classified as a pyment.
Whatever the real discussion of this ends up with, the basic procedure of grape as the main non-honey ingredient still stands.
