Do not like Mead?
Have not tried Mead?
My first batch of Joes Ancient Orange was ready this week. Not too bad. It probably wont last the week. I do have a 2nd batch brewing that Im going to try and leave alone at least until Christmas.
Does mead have any advantages or disadvantages for diabetics compared to traditional drinks?

I make wine and have a son that makes beer. I have bought meads but they have always been too sweet for my taste. They were okay chilled on a hot afternoon, but generally they were nothing that I would buy much of. A few years ago my son (the beer making one) said that he wanted to try a mead so I gave him some honey. He gave me back a couple of bottles which I put on the wine rack in the basement and kind of forgot about. One day we got one out and chilled it. Was I surprised, it was very nice. Very much like a nice riesling. A had a sweetness, but it was something that I could easily drink. It was about two years old at that time. I keep thinking that I should try another, but I keep selling all of my honey.
I love sweet things so a sweet mead would be awesome!! My buddy and I just racked our first mead, and I tried a little bit for fun, it was pretty hot!! Felt like I just took a shot of blueberry brandy on a cold day, could feel it from my throat to my gut!! Im not a wine taster, but i tasted like a champagne to me, kinda bubbly i guess.
