Mead typically improves greatly with age. How much honey and LME did you use? It's certainly possible that some time might help things.

Thanks for the responses... I've got a couple of ideas now.

I used 6lbs lme and 1lb of honey and 1lb corn sugar... Like I said, it was an experiment.. One I don't plan to replicate.

Never underestimate the power of bacon!!!!!!
It may be the one thing I like better than beer.

OK, so bacon was a bad example.

Make a pot of hop tea and add a bit to each glass. Boil 1/2 oz of a bittering hop in 1 quart of water for 60 minutes, then add a good aroma hop at 5. An ounce of the mix will give you about 10 IBUs with a 12 oz bottle of beer.

You could get a distilling licence from the state and make ethanol for your car with it, but don't be drinking the ethanol you make because then it would be called moonshine.
