I like the idea of a raspberry/cherry vanilla mead (whatever fruit you guys pick). I think i'll put together a couple gallons of whatever recipe is decided on.

How about a lemongrass mead? Fruit has been done to death, lets find something that we don't already have in carboys or bottles.

This is similar to the one I have going now. Only difference is the Meadowfoam Honey which has a vanilla taste to it:

3 Gallon Batch
3 Gal Tart Cherry Juice
9 lbs Honey, Meadowfoam
1 lbs Dark Sweet Cherries, Dried
8.0 oz Tart Cherries, Dried
2 Vanilla Beans (Secondary)
1 Pkgs Lalvin D-47 w/6.25 gm Go-Ferm
4.50 gm Fermaid-K
4.50 gm DAP

Step 1: Put 1 qt water in fermenting pail. Add dried cherries and soak overnite.
Step 2: Mash berry mixture with hand blender. Add Cherry Juice and honey and mix/aerate well. Add Fermaid-K + DAP. Cover with sanitized cloth or lid.
Step 3: Aerate every 12 hours and check for end of lag phase (foaming). At end of lag phase add Fermaid-K + DAP.
Step 4: Aerate twice daily until 1/3 sugar break.
Step 5: Once past 1/3 break, stir the must daily (as opposed to aerating) until the 2/3 sugar break.
Step 6: At 1/2 sugar break add Fermaid-K + DAP and mix well.
Step 7: Rack to secondary when finished (2-3 weeks) and add vanilla beans. Top off with cherry juice. Rack after 2 months and every 1-3 months until clear then bottle.

I also vote for cherry vanilla. I guess all we need now is a respected member to take point on this one and push it.

Don't know if I'm a "respected" member or not , but I'll volunteer to get a Feb. 22nd group brew post going if no one objects.
