Turns out that Cape Cod Beer only has stuff for making beer and a few wines. I was looking for a place nearby to possibly get mead yeast. I was just hoping that google was wrong and I wouldn't have...

There's someone somewhere on the forums here who made a pine mead. Turned out to have an "earthy" flavor. Might that be something in line with what you're looking for?

It depends on the drink. For whiskey or mead, I'll take an old fashioned glass, though I do also use wine glasses for mead. For beer, got to be the imperial pint glass.

Just bottled my Strawberry mead. I only brewed it on Valentine's Day, but it tastes pretty good now. I can only imagine what it'll be like in a year or three.

In the future you might want to either use a different yeast from EC-1118 or wait to add the fruit until you rack the mead to secondary. It has a reputation for blowing all the fruit aromas and such...

Tw0fish, it was a 6 gallon carboy. Once I get all the fruit bits and whatnot out of it, it'll probably fit in one of my 5 gallon ones, though.
