    Ahh - my apologies for not getting an update sooner! So, the beer has a pretty heavy citrus

    Just took a hydrometer reading of 1.024; which puts the ABV around 10.4%! w00t! Thanks

    So, I took my first stab at making mead about a month ago...even found a local apiary and got
    some good honey at a decent price. Recipe is as follows:10lbs Orange Blossom Honey5lbs Clover
