Default McMead

As a joke I asked my friends to collect honey packets every time they go to McDonald's. Well as with most jokes my friends took me seriously. Now every time I see them They hand me honey packets. The big question is what flavors to add to it and what to call it. So far it is being called McMead. I figure I need about 500 honey packets and so far I have about 100. It's only been about 2 weeks. I think my local McDonald's most love me.

Is it real honey or honey flavored corn syrup? KFC uses the latter one. but I do like the name, McMead!

The packets say pure grade a honey. 1/2 oz. So lets hope its honey.

There's gotta be a way to flavor it with something from Mickey D's as well!

Secret sauce from a big mac...? All those little packets are going to be a pain to sanitize before opening.

The fat from the mayo component would seriously affect the head retention, should he decide to go sparkling and i'm sure clarity would be an issue.

They do have some things with fruit. There's a fruit salad that comes with the dressing stuff on the side. But you'd probably have to buy 100 of 'em.

Just make it a straight mead with nothing else. What have you got to lose? Except for the yeast, nutrient and water, it's a free batch!
