Been drinking the hell out of the black tea. I keep thinking of the Aecht without the alcohol.

Keep me posted on our collab progress.

hahaha, my beer mentor just asked me in an email:

If you got a free bucket of honey, what would you do with it?
Make beer stronger, make tasty sweet honey mead, or sour yucky mead?

I'd call for a honey smoked porter, but I reckon mead would be sound good as well.

Btw, the honey I got at the local market in Göt is phenomenal.

He hates my super dry mead, haha

He probably wants me to brew a super sweet mead, like the ones he makes

I might just do that, since it might get me a big old bucket of free honey

Sitting at home waiting for me brewing supplies to arrive by delivery company.

Looking to brew a mead next weekend and a beer weekend after that.

Plan if I can fit it all in to my schedule with trips and shows are 3 meads and 6 beers before x-mas

I might have a plan that works!

23/9: Mead 6, sloe berries
30/9: Beer 96, Best Bitter
20/10: Beer 97, English Pale Ale
21/10: Mead 7, red currants
3/11: Beer 98, Brown Porter
11/11: Beer 99, Chili Porter
17/11: Beer 100, Smoked Porter
24/11: Beer 101, Spiced X-mas 2012

Mead 8, rhubarbs, will happen depending on when mead 7 is done with primary fermentation

Just recently got into Mead making. I have 6 gallons of Orange Melomel mead (Joes Ancient Orange Mead) with 3 gallons almost ready to bottle.

I'm far more experienced in beer brewing than brewing mead, and have tasted many many more beers than I have mead, but still levo the mead part of brewing and tasting.

Will visit a meadery in Boulder in a few weeks, shall be interesting to see a commercial one and how they have it set up.

Good luck with the brewing!

Yeah I havent found a commercial mead maker here in the US that I absolutely love yet. I like Red Stone Meadery, they have decent stuff. I will say that I do love Viking Blod (Dansk Mjod).

Redstone is the one I'm going to!

And Dansk Mjød Viking Blod

Oh nice yeah redstone is pretty good. I like their carb blueberry mead and the vanilla season mead. And I had placed an order for 4 bottles of Dansk Mjod Viking Blod but had to cancel for financial reasons. But as soon as I can im going to order a bunch of it. Im almost certain they mix in some sorta wiskey or hard liqour I cant think the name of right now.

Also I racked one of my 3 gallons over to secondary which fermented out pretty dry so I had to backsweeten and stabalize with sobrate and a campden tablet. Its my fault for messing with the original recipie as I added nutrients. Also the honey I used was a local honey that had an odd tart flavor which I dont think transfered over well to mead. But we will see I will let it sit for another month then bottle. Then shelf it for about a year and see how it tastes.

One last thing I HIGHLY recomend trying http://www.shoppersvineyard.com/stor...248_f0922_2320 thats the second best commercial mead ive tasted.

I've tried two commercial ones from that meadery

B. Nektar Barrel Aged Dry Cyser
and
B. Nektar Yo Momma’s Strawberry Pizzazz

liked both of them.



As for brewing mead I enjoy letting them ferment completely, so sweetness left, and also spice them with something.
Dry meads with subtle hints of fruits or berries and spices, mmm
