    A melomel, and they're about 2.5 months old. And they don't last much longer :-)

    And Elderberries literally grow on the same properties as many of my hives, so there's the
    macho factor of harvesting all the ingredients yourself :-) Stupid, but I guess a man
    thing.....

    In our area the spring honey flow starts as early as January, and the honey is very light.
    Here's a glass from a nice batch

    I am a bit spoiled! Total cost for me is about 50 cents per bottle. Getting the crap stung out

    This is to see if I can post pics here. This was made from my own honey and raspberries
    harvested from a farm my bees pollinate. This glass is about 6 weeks from the start of the
    fermentation process,...

    When I get honey from a tree or house I usually make mead with it. If you just squeeze the wax
    a bit underwater for a few minutes the was floats up to the top.But putting comb into water
    without crush...

    I agree with fatbloke. I put in just a few leaves of lavender and some anise seed in a 5 gallon
    batch and frankly ruined it. It's just not drinkable. I'm also puzzled as to answer the
    question, since ...
