Just opened the first bottle of our mead this afternoon. Simple beginner recipe from Schramm's Compleat Mead book. Aged about 10 months...still a little harsh, so probably needs some more time. We didn't take a specific gravity at the beginning so no idea how alcoholic it is, but I can tell you I'm buzzed from this first glass!
And about the bride/groom champagne glasses - we recently got engaged and have decided to make a whole bunch of mead for the wedding, so these glasses seemed fitting!
