AS far as "being developed", it's honey and water. Don't see how that was "developed specifically" for anything particular yeast......?
sounds like you are more knowledgeable than joe. please let us know how that works out for you.

Didn't say I know more than anybody and I didn't know Joe was a real person. Only thing I said was that I don't understand how Honey and water is specific to Bread Yeast. If there's an explanation I'd love to hear it.

i recommend reading the first post of this thread. it's originally from Joe Mattioli, who apparently is not very easy to contact. there is an even longer thread on this recipe over at the winepress forum.

I made a version many months ago. I changed everything but the water, honey and yeast. I added 2 lbs of wild blueberries to it instead and let it do it's thing.

Things were slow at first and I thought I screwed up with the berries. The bubbles were hold up with the berries at the top, and it continued to release air for over a month. It took just over 2 months for the berries to drop and the mead to clear.

In the end the it had an abv around 14%

???? You can get both of those at your local grocery for under 5 bucks for both! Dont leave them out man! Youll regret it in the long run!

the nutmeg was 5 bucks for a small bottle, and the cloves were 6 for a small bottle. will only having the orange, raisins and cinnamon in the honey water make it crappy?

Naaaa...it wont be crappy man, but look like at the dollar stores and places like that. Id say if you can get those last 2 ingreidients in there in the next week or two youll be cool...that way it goes through the initial ferment. It wont be crap though if you just cant get them in there. I always buy the whole nutmeg and crack about 1 or 2 between 2 spoons and then toss it into the mix. ...then like 2 cloves.....They just really augment the taste and thats is what your shooting for...
