Default 1 gallon mead recipe for a mead newbie

Hey HomebrewTalkers,

I'm just getting back into brewing after taking a break for 2 years. One thing I never tried was mead, neither drinking it or making it, but I love the flavor of honey.

I'd really like to start off and practice with a simple recipe, some kind of sweet-tasting sparkling mead.

Can anybody point me to an easy 1 gallon mead recipe?

Thanks!

There's actually a mead forum specifically for this, but Joe's Ancient Orange Mead is the classic "first timer" mead. The recipe is here:

And the mead forum is here:

Good luck!
