Default Mead Making Books?

Well, I looked at the FAQ and searched, but didn't see anything. I might be missing it, but I'm wondering if anyone has any suggestions for a good book on mead making?

The Complete Meadmaker by Schramm is probably considered the bible of mead making. The website Got Mead - Mead (honeywine) making, mead drinking, mead recipes is an good online source.

Thanks Nurmey!!

I've got a few batches of beer under my belt and my first batch of cider is taking off, but I'm really anxious to try a batch of mead. I've sampled a few different commercial meads over the years and enjoyed them. Also, while I can't get her to try my beer, I know SWMBO enjoy's both cider and mead.

Not to be anal, but it's actually called "The compleat meadmaker"

maybe Ken couldn't spell "complete?"

+10 to the Compleat Meadmaker! If you're getting more adventurous in your beer brewing and interested in starting mead you might also try Radical Brewing by Randy Mosher. It is mostly beer but has a faily good chapter on Meads and Braggot including some very good recipies like Chucks Atomic Fireball Mead. You might check it out too.
