Re: Why not tulip poplar honey mead?
The whole point IMO of making your own (well there are many but for me #1 is) that you can make it the way YOU want it and don't have to take any grief from anyone!!! If you like it and other don't, well that'll just make fewer meadmakers hankering for that poplar. I make a house dry stout that I (and everyone who's tried it) just loves. When I have submitted it for competition, while it's perfectly executed if I do say so myself, it suffers points for being too roasty and dry for the style. Wouldn't change the recipe for love or money though . Take good notes and make that poplar mead any year you can!
