    Thumbs Up sipping our first mead

    Yesterday we bottled our first batch of mead. My wife asked me to sniff the top of the carboy in fear that it might be vinegar. Ah, the thrill of victory. It is as good as any mead we purchased and it has a kick. Grinning ear to ear.
    I am hopeful that we will harvest enough honey this fall to do it again.

    Yield was just under 9 1.5 liter bottles.

    I am sure you will not be able to do this, but if you let it age for at least 1 year... you could have something really nice.

    I only have a few months to go but it will be tough. I think the question of what am I going to do with all this honey has gone to, do we have enough for more mead? Just pulling the cap off the bottle brings a smile to my face. Such a wonderful aroma. I wasn't expecting to extract much this year but now I am hopeful.

    Would you be willing to share your recipe? I've had Mead once and really wasn't impressed. I'd like to try making it myself.
