His orange/spice/cinnamon is nice..but just a slight variation of JAOM recipe. His vanilla mead he made, he said was flat out horrible and would never make again. His Pumpkin mead he said was very nice.
Again, he's got some great info and has helped me out alot too. If you talk to him again tell him Dan says hi!
No problem Fly Ill let him know! I actually sent him an invite to join us here and share the wealth as it were! Im a newbie so im sticking with traditional Meads right now...Once I get a few batches under my belt without ruin Ill try something a bit different...Ill prolly go with the JAOM myself...logical next step
