I agree with Malkore absolutely. Don't try anything fancy the first time. Melomels are more
forgiving to first time mead makers.
Posted in thread: "Mead" from Molasses? on 02-13-2008 at 01:28 PM
I've done it. I fermented Barbados Molasses, with a little honey, a vanilla bean, using turbo
yeast. It's quite interesting! I kept feeding the brew with molasses until I had pushed the

a lambic braggot....hmmm, that has some potential!

First of all, you need more fruit. You would need 1-2 lbs per gallon of mead, so 5-10lbs for a
5 gallon carboy. You could safely add 5 lbs of each fruit and still get a mild flavor. If you
want the fr...

I wouldn't even worry about bottling it this spring. You will need to rack it to another jug
