Just found PP fruit at the local grocery store (that's right, in MI) for .59/each. Don't think it'd be worth it to make mead (at least not more than a Gallon for fun) but I'll be trying them out for the first time tonight.

We had some friends over last week, and broke out a bottle of this mead, now over five years old. The prickly pear flavor is pronounced, but not as overpowering as it was for the first one or two years. This is a fun one to watch age, and there are still around 6 bottles left.

Very cool. I haven't opened one in I think 3 years. Mine are nearing 5 year mark come this fall. I think I have around 10 16 oz Grolsch bottles left.

Considering where I now live I may only crack one open every 1-2 years.
