Also if you are familiar with brewing of any sort, see the glossary that I put up a few days ago. Mind you I was just putting in terms for someone going from beer to mead, but it is a good way to start too.

Also go chat up your LHBS. If they are any kind of brewer, they can give you basic info on meads, yeasts, and everything that you'll need to know

So, could you just fill me in how to build a car? Just kidding, but you have a pretty damn broad question!

If you're interested in a good text, instruction manual, and introduction to mead, check out the 'bible' of mead making, Ken Schramm's The Compleat Meadmaker.

Thanks for the link biochemedic. I have been thinking of buying a mead only book, this one looks great.

Joe's Ancient Orange Mead is around here somewhere, and you could make it with a trip to the grocery store. It's pretty foolproof.
