Default What are your mead plans for 2013?

I'm new at brewing and pretty enthusiastic I have several projects going and have been planning more. I get very busy around April-November, so I have to keep my project amounts reasonable. So far I have :

-Wild mint methaglyn(picked down by the river)
-Strawberry rhubarb melomel( from my own organic garden)
-okanagan peach and or apricot melomel(farmers market)
- traditional, with local fireweed honey.
-pumpkin pie( with my own heirloom pumpkin)

Also maybe a Saskatoon melomel, depending on this years crop.

So, what are you planning?

I started my partial Bochet braggot already the first of this year. I have a couple of rice wines I want to try. And when I sample some of my projects from last year I will either duplicate or improve upon them.

Same as before...........make it up as I go along.

I don't really plan anything like that, I'm an opportunist when it comes to ingredients.

If I see something that catches my eye, then I'll have a think........

Starting my first batch of the year this weekend. A traditional with orange blossom honey. After that, whatever ends up sounding good.

I have traditional going now with a little lemon in it, plan on trying to get my buddies in a big batch like 20 gallons or so, but don't know what kind yet. Definitely more cysers, and I have to do an experiment 1 gal with something wierd, or maybe just hops

I have two gallons of JAOM that I started on new years day, they are my first meads, so I went with something simple. I'm hoping to find something within my skill level that uses peaches, and another that uses cranberries. Aside from that, I hoping to get a batch of cider going soon.

I am starting a ginger mead tonight, and I'd like to get another cider going. Other then that, I'll do as fatbloke does and figure it out as I go along. It is more fun this way!

littletommy,

Forget skill level, just find a recipe and go for it! There is no skill levels you should worry about. Have confidence and learn as you go. You'll be brewing up a storm before you know it!

- Capsicumel of some sort
- cherry cinnamon melomel
- lots of traditional
- spiced cyser
- chai spiced mead
- Blueberry melomel
- perhaps a couple of traditionals with really distinct honey varieties
- trying to work out a ginger-sweet potato recipe as well.

So much to try, never enough honey...

Never brewed anything but after reading these boards I wanted to try it out. Wanted to start Jan 1st but we are moving to Portland in March and the wife asked me to hold off till we get there. So, I'll start in march and hopefully have JOAM and cider to serve up for Labor Day.
