  • I started because after my grandfather passed I was given the equipment he had used for homebrewing, it hadn't been used in years but brought back fond memories of watching/helping him, started with an extract kit and is slowly evolving, going to attempt my first all grain batch this summer...Then I stumbled across a real simple mead recipe, honey, water, yeast, nutrients...simplest traditional recipe you can imagine, I had heard of mead but did'nt know much about it, since then it has become an addiction, almost obsession to make, experiment and learn about.

    Raisins would work, put some in a cup of boiling water with a plain black tea bag if you have
    it, let it steep for an hour (this will make a real strong tea as well as give it time to cool
    down) and a...

    larger scale you can use it to infuse a specific flavor to make a tea metheglin. Second on the
    smaller sca...

    No futuristic facility that I know of. However a 5gal pail isn't exactly 5gal. It can be more
    like 5.4-5.75 gal. And at 12lbs/gal, that's closer to 70#. Plus I know it's a lower moisture
    because it ha...
