I want to get into mead.
Like drinking good interesting mead but I don’t even know where to start. Hard to find at most packies.
@jim it's pretty easy to make, as long as you're careful to keep everything clean. admittedly it can take several months before it's ready to drink.
@ischade Have you made it? Recipes to recommend?
@jim yes. I've made 3 batches of mead, a blackberry wine, and a strawberry wine.
a reasonably good online overview for mead: http://makemead.net/brewingbasics.aspx
@jim fwiw, there are recipes off of makemead dot net.
"The Compleat Meadmaker", by Ken Schramm is a very good resource, if you want to explore this in more detail.
honey can vary a lot in sweetness & nutrient levels, so recipes can be more like guidelines. (vs say, a proper croissant.)
@ischade Cool. Thanks!
