Default Mead with malt

Hello there i was thinking of making a mead with dark dried malt next time around. Has anyone made a batch of mead with malt before and how did it come out? Along with it would be 12 lbs of honey 6 wildflower and 6 orange honey and some heather tips.

It's actually a style. Look for braggot recipes.

A waste of two good ingredients if you ask me...

I had a braggot recently, but I'd rather have a beer and a mead, but not together...

Sure it was a good braggot? Mine's only a month old and I am already having a hard time not drinking it. And I'm not one to typically like sweet stuff.

I made my own modification of the Hefty Braggot in the Schramm book and am definitely looking to make more braggots here pretty soon.

To the OP, if you might use it for something else, I'd skip using the orange blossom. It's a nice, light honey that would almost be wasted on a braggot. You can just use clover or wildflower really; the malt & hops are going to mask the delicacy of the orange blossom. Schramm recommended using a little bit of a strong honey, too, like buckwheat. Sounds interesting and I'd like to try it. I'm also anxious to try it with a bit of aroma hops, instead of just bittering hops. So many things to read about and try! (and wait for...)

Yeah, it tasted good, different, reminded me of a German Radler.

There's nothing wrong with braggots, but as I said, I'd rather have a good beer and a good mead over a braggot.

Never had tulip, but buckwheat will way overpower a mead. Most recipes it is a few ounces. If you want a darker mead though, caramelizing the honey is a good option.

I have a recipe here for Caramel Apple mead using crystal malt. Definitely not a braggot! Several people have made it and all have given good reviews.
