Nice! I would be interested in a picture or two of it. Thanks!

I was considering Meadowfoam but am saving that for my 5 gallon batch. I think 12lbs's of Meadowfoam is $50...not sure.

Sounds like Flying Bee Ranch! They're wonderful. I've made meadowfoam, buckwheat, and orange blossom traditionals using their honeys, used their white sage in a pear melomel, and just started a carrot blossom traditional, all from that apiary.

Meadowfoam is incredible -- it really does taste like vanilla marshmallows. It's the best mead I've made thus far. White sage is also slightly vanilla-y. Orange blossom was good, but I did have to add a bit of orange flower water to the final product to bump up that flavor a bit. And the carrot honey by itself has a very wonderful strong honey flavor (but nowhere near as strong as buckwheat and its associated weird barnyard and green flavors...that one's not going as well as some of the others...)
