My bees turned out 12 gallons of honey this year (WHOOP!) so I decided to start making some mead again. The honey has such a strong flavor compared to the store bought honey I have used in the past I am really anxious to see what happens.
I have just put up a:
1 gallon Bouchet
1 gallon vanilla orange Metheglin
1 gallon blueberry Melomel
and a 2 gallon Peach Cyser*
Thanks to this post I will know to plan letting the Bouchet sit for a few years.
*The peach cyser was actually an accident. I was canning peaches with medium syrup made with water and honey and had a 1/2 gallon left. Since I had just put up 30 bottles of apple sauce I have a ton of peels and cores. I juiced them all and got 1.5 gallons of cider. Mixed the cider and the syrup in an extra carboy and there you go. I don't know if I want it to be amazing or not since I could never replicate it...
