    Just finished siphoning it, and had a quick taste. Got a bit of a 'young mead' taste to it, but

    Thought I'd better take this into its own thread, rather than clog up the 'easy recipie'
    thread.Here's the recipie I found, and that I'm following with this experiment:Original recipe

    Yeah, that's true......Yip, I did. :D Nothing noticable at the minute, but it's only been going

    Well, I'm giving it a shot now - I'll let you guys know how it turns out! I'm wondering if this
    is even going to start to ferment, though, with so little yeast added.
