I brewed this back on 5-16-09
The process is not very fun as you have to watch it the entire time and it is perpetually in boil over mode so you have to stir it constantly.
Basically I boiled 18 pounds of store bought (Sam's Club) honey down to a very thick not quite black color and added back water at the end and simmered it for another half hour to get it all dissolved into the water. Topped up and cooled to pitch temps and added yeast nutrient and blend of several wine yeast including Montrachet and EC 1118
Tastings on transfers were of toffee and sweet honey background. Very clear now at 6 months old. It is a dark ruby color. I will pull a sample at some point and post a picture.
I have high hopes for this mead. Todays sampling went very well. I took it to a buddies brew day and apparently later after I left a neighbor was asking where he could get more of it.
