Skyrim and Mead
Am I the only one on this forum that plays video games and is really excited to see the prevalence of mead in the new Elder Scrolls V Skyrim? Hell, you can even visit a meadery. It's one of the first few buildings you pass after you escape the first dragon.

And who knew mead would replenish your stamina but slow it's replenishment ;D . I'm not gonna lie, I'm proud to be a mead home brewer. Hopefully with the huge presence mead has in Skyrim and the game's popularity amongst a large and widely set age bracket for its player basis there will be a spike in the interest for mead creation and consumption in the general public.

I'm thinking about making a special Skyrim batch. Maybe it'll be done by the time I beat the game :P

There's a whole thread on Skyrim already in general chit chat.

I would be interested in that! Using a large number of spices and what not that could be found in Skyrim.

I think some Vampire Dust would be wonderful. Maybe a little gritty. But you should be able to use garlic to increase clarity.

Ya the day I got the game I broke out a few bottles of my mead. It was awesome. If someone comes up with a recipe I would love to get a whole group to do a skyrim mead

This caught my eye and I just wanted to say, I just started brewing beer (2 brews so far) and have always had and interest in mead and will be brewing some soon (when I can find a cheap source of bulk honey). Also I love video games and have been playing Skyrim a bit and along with loving the game itself I really like them working in the meadery's. I always keep a good supply of mead and ale in the game. Happy brewing and gaming to you.

P.S. while walking around (I believe Windhelm) I heard an NPC talking about a Mead with Juniper berries. This might be a good Skyrim Mead. I myself always thought I would do one with Pomegranate juice.

Unfortunately I haven't got that far. I'm only a level 8 right now, and have only joined the Mage's guild. (sort of by accident) I work road construction, and would normally be layed-off right now and have poured hundreds of hours into the games of this fall, but we are too busy servicing the Marcellus gas industry all winter :( Sadly, it may take me years to get through Skyrim at this rate. I was also looking forward to brewing a 20% IPA that would need all kinds of attention, but haven't had the time to do that either. Since I do want to do a mead, do you have any good recipe's? I think I'm just going to stick with a pretty basic one to start out, and I want to do a really sweet mead. I know I don't want to back sweeten.

This game is making me tap into my mead stock more often than usual.

I just wish I had a tankard to drink out of instead of a glass mug. I'm working on a recipe for a skyrim mead if anyone wants to join. Most likely with juniper berries since that is one of the first things you hear in the game.
