En novembre j'ai commençé à faire une sorte d'hydromel, un mead comme disent les anglophones.

Il s'agit de mettre du miel dans de leau, mélanger à fond, et laisser dans un bocal ouvert, couvert d'un tissu, pendant 10-15j.
Le seul entretien nécessaire etant de remuer quotidiennement et vigoureusement.

Avec la fermentation, on obtient une boisson légèrement perlante, avec des arômes assez dingues de gâteau / cake au rhum.

Qui a déjà testé ?

What is the most profitable business in the world? You might think oil, or maybe banking. You would be wrong. The answer is academic publishing. Its profit margins are vast, reportedly in the region of 40 per cent.

Publicly funded researchers do the work, write it up and judge its merits. And yet the resulting intellectual property ends up in the hands of the publishers. They then sell it via exorbitant subscriptions and paywalls, often paid for by taxpayers too.
