This is my first post on here. I've been brewing mead for a few years. My old brewing partner is my ex wife's brother-in-law, so i've had to go solo for the past year. So far, i've only done some of the recipes i found on this site, and had some good results.
I want to try and make my own recipe, and need some input on ingredients. The flavor i want to go for is french toast. I can get raw wild flower honey from a local brewing supply store. Given the time of year here in Michigan, there aren't many options for honey. But, i want the spices added to provide a lot of the flavor anyway. So far, i've figured 15 lbs. of honey, two vanilla beans, once cinnamon stick, and and undecided amount of maple syrup.
I want to add something to get the salty taste from soaking the delicious breakfast food with butter, but am having a tough time figuring out what to use. This is where i could use the most input, as well as recommendations for how much syrup to use.
