Default Honey Nut Mead

OK I had one of those brain farts this morning. I was eating some Honey Nut Cheerios when I wondered if I could make a mead like this. I looked around and couldn't find a rec. for a mead quite like I am after so I figured I would just make one up.(hell its only one gallon going down the sink if I goof it up) I figured I would try something on the sweat side.

maybe take 2 oz of minced almonds and 4 cups of watter. Boil it down to maybe a cup or so. Make a must with 4 lb.s of honey and use some D47 yeast and the strained nut watter(sure there is a better term).

Any one had any good or bad experiences with doing something like this, I would love to hear about it. Maybe I'll make another gallon experiment with a cinnamon stick in the secondary.

It would be good too if you used chestnuts.

It seems like a FOX TV Show when a mead maker moves in with an AG brewer....They end up with **** like Lambic Braggot.

At least I'm not the only one thinking of brewing while I eat breakfast!
