Funk, Yeah, the raisins in my bottles fattened up too. I have had 6 different people sample my
first batch of JAOM so far and the heads are nodding. It's great stuff. I cannot drink very

Bogus. I have only found one store in my area that sells mead. It is made by Honey Run Winery

Rowing, I am just now tasting the apricot mead I got going a month ago. I am very happy with
