If You want I will try to translate some recipes for You.
to what I ended up posting on my blog when I was thinking about having a go at making some (I still haven't got round to it
- word of the month ? "procrastinate").
Anyway, initially I thought about trying a Czwórniak, as that would be more within my ability. Yet some further digging, has lead me to probably put off any attempt. I'm not a fan of very sweet meads, yet speaking with a colleague (who's family are in Stargard), that "proper" Polish meads aren't just sweet, they tend to be very sweet. This was backed up by a friend from Gotmead who's in Jelenia Gora. So I suspect I'll just carry on as I am, and only try proper Polish meads, if or when I get the chance to visit Poland (on my list of places to visit/see).
I do seem to recall that there are some Polish language brewing forums as well, but I don't have a link as when I tried to look at them I was hoping that they might have been set up with a translation facility - they weren't. Yet it might be worth checking out, as there could be some good mead info there that could help.
