A couple years ago when I was an avid beer brewer I dabbled in meads. One mead I made had a light lavender mix with a slight hop flavor. This was very tasty and I spent a many drunken night at my back patio by my table fire pit drinking this stuff.
But I brewed a straight mead, kinda dry, with a good amount of Saaz hops. This one struck me well, and I invited some friends over to give it a swing. It was a giant success with everyone. They still ask for it to this day.
Well here is my problem. I sold most of my brewing equipment when I found that this hobby was making me gain insane amounts of weight (that must mean I was a successful brewer?). Now that I have recently moved I've found I've had enough equipment to make mead, and I want to recreate that mead.
My question is this... does ANYONE have experience with hopping mead? I have long since lost my logs (physical notebook lost in move). And I'm going to try to recreate the batch, but I do not want to do too little or too much hops.
Also, please don't call hopped mead a Braggot or a Tej, its just a metheglin, plain and simple
Thanks in advance folks!
