Default Game of Thrones Mead

Hey guys,

In another thread, some members expressed an interest in brewing mead inspired by Game of Thrones. Since Season 3 is premiering at the end of the month, there's plenty of time to brew before Season 4 starts.

Someone suggested starting a dedicated thread so that we can all post pictures/recipes of our GOT-inspired meads. Well, here it is!

I'd be up for it. Maybe we could come up with some Bastard or Imp inspired names?

Absolutely. The names will be the best part.

Tyrion and Khaleesi are my two favorites, so I'll likely brew something related to them. Someone mentioned a dragonfruit inspired mead, which would tie into Khaleesi and her dragons.

Only way I can imagine doing a Tyrion inspired mead is to bottle it in really short bottles.

I'm hoping some people will label their bottles as well with some GOT artwork.

Bastard of the North Mead. I am all over that. But what to put in it to make it Bastard or North like to justify the name.

Right. It would be interesting to do a Lannister mead, but how do you represent incest in a recipe for mead? lol

I am in.... no base recipe? Any creative parameters? Example, only raw honey, organic additives, wild yeast...

Made my decision. Just picked up some ingredients.

"Dragon Horn Mead"

-Dragonfruit
-Horn Melon
-15 lbs. clover honey
-4 gallons distilled water
-Frozen Raspberries
-Blueberry Fruit Juice

Any suggestions on the yeast? I'm having good luck with the WYeast Sweet Mead Accelerator on my current batch which is ferming, but perhaps I should use something different for this blend.
