Thanks! I was just doing a little research and found this Bochet recipe. I think I'd also
rather go for a golden brown or dark brown color. I'm tossing around the idea of making beer
clones using hone...

I just had the idea of caramelizing my honey before making mead, in order to give it some
nutty/toasty notes. Anyone know of any obvious cons to this method, before I try it?

I'm sure this has probably been discussed already, but I couldn't find it online. What's the
best way to store leftover ingredients? I'm planning some one-to-two-gallon AG brewing recipes

over-oaked a batch of mead a long time ago, and it wasn't pretty. I ended up just using it to
