I've been lurking for a month or two now and figured I needed to get a shot of my latest batch loaded up. I started making mead last November. My second batch is just about ready to bottle (probably this weekend) and I'm looking forward to enjoying the first bottle around Halloween. Both batches have been cysers, heavy on the honey, and using the sweet mead yeast from Wyeast. Came out great, just what I was hoping for - a sweat mead with a decently heavy apple flavor and respectable ABV (13%). I reduced the apples and the honey in the second batch, but carmelized the honey a little, so I'm curious how this next one will taste. I'm going to have to start making more (again, already) since it seems quite popular with friends... It has disappeared at a startling rate (not that *I* would have drank all that much...lol!).
