Default Making the best braggot and mead in the world!

i am going to attempt this at a very very high cost using honey imported from hawaii around volcanic regions that are high in ormus. my friend gets it delivered to his house and let me try some last night. i will start off by saying that it is the best tasting honey i have ever had. when i say the best tasting i mean no other honey has ever come anywhere close. second, with its unusually high ormus levels it was able to elevate me and make me feel more than great supplying me with instant energy and an overall better feeling in every single part of my body. i felt like i was being lifted off the ground at times. i said to myself, why not make a mead or braggot out of this stuff. it may cost me a few hundred dollars to make a 3 gallon batch but i could possibly have the greatest mead or braggot in the world as a reward. anyways, im going to save a little money and get some of this magical honey myself and see what i can make out of it.

Did you smoke this stuff or what?

If you make a braggot are you going to use hops?

Also what color was the honey?

the honey was dark amber. it really was something else. i know it sounds crazy but im not fooling around. its not like the stuff intoxicated me, it just made me feel great by elevating my energy levels, it made me think clearer, and feel happier. and the taste. Holy F*ck

I'm sure the honey was really good, but this "ormus" sounds like a pile of H0r$3$#1t to me!
