first time batch racked
Well I took the plunge made my firsts batch of mead using a real dark honey from wild flowers and a recipe from bullseye bill the mush bucket bubbled heavy for 5 weeks racked it over last sunday into the carboy where it is still slowly bubbling away can wait for it to finish up and be done. it has a good flavor and smell to it pretty strong stuff. I liked it so well I started my second batch using light citrus honey got it started tonight we will see how long it bubbles
Call us when it's ready, we'll be over to help you "test" the first batch
How about posting the recipe?
Haven't made mead in about 10 yrs. Still have all the equipment though and would ready to get everything out of Mothballs
One, then two, then 10, then.....
After beekeeping had taken over the first garage, then taken over the second garage I built (which was suppose to empty the first one), and now I have both filled, the wife saw the whole "I really want to make just one more batch" coming. I guess wanting that pallet of carboys delivered was a bit much.....(this time).
My goal is to let one of the 5 gallon batches work its magic, on some snowy night with perhaps some beeswax candles burning, and after filling her glass a couple times, then breaking the news for the full blown meadery in one of the kids rooms. (This of course after one of them moves onto the couch.) Wish me luck.
Hey, isn't it suppose to snow tonight....
meadery gone haywire
