Tonight, this finally got bottled. I let it sit. And sit. And sit. And am glad I did because THAT, sir, is heaven in a bottle. My husband doesn't like it, but I'll have to beat my daughter-in-law-'s father off with a baseball bat to keep him out of it :-) That is phenomenal, and I will most assuredly be starting another batch SOON. WOW!!!!!

After a review like that I'll have to try this

How long did it sit? Did you follow the original recipe?

I did follow the recipe. I let it sit, racking occasionally, for almost a year ( started it at the end of September last year). All meads benefit from time. I bottled a traditional mead about as aged, nd it'll be better for another 6-12 months. But the ZtAt is ready to enjoy nw. ANSI is just awesome.

That is an awesome review lol. I'm glad it turned out well. I'm on batch 2 right now and will make more down the line

I am so excited to try this! I just pitched the yeast on my first batch this afternoon and I think that I'm really going to have a hard time waiting for this one to finish. It smells wonderful and I opted to leave the veins and seeds in for a little extra heat. This is certainly going to be an interesting one!

This sounds good... Just bought the ingredients to make this mead.
Just to clarify: the original 3 jalapeños and 1 cucumber only go in the boiled water for 30 min, then you remove and discard them? So no veggies in during the primary (only the honey and infused water and yeast), but then add 2 new jalapeños and 1 new cucumber for the secondary about a week? I've seen many recipes that leave whatever fruit or veg in during the primary, so I just wanted to make sure... Thanks!

That is what I have done. Let the veggies steep for 30 minutes then remove and add the honey. in my opinion the viggies will not help during the primary. I usually leave fruits in there. I just add the fresh veggies for about a week before bottling to get the aroma and flavor bumped up a little.

Sounds like a plan. I'm about to brew it up right now... Will let you know how it goes. Thanks for the recipe!
